Summer is usually my favorite time of year. When the kids were little, we used to have lazy days filled with trips to the Exton library where we would load up on books and spend afternoons on blankets under our front trees reading. I miss those days more than you know and now cherish even a few minutes of uninterrupted time with each of them. Those days flew by.

I cherish small things more than I did before and try my best (although very very hard) to be patient with the eye rolls, messy rooms, and an un-emptied dishwasher. I know many would love to have those problems, and I am respectful of that.

I am taking some time this summer to reflect on the past nine months, re-evaluate my priorities for the organization, and re-focus my efforts to maximize the impact on our community. I started this organization with one simple goal… to make someone’s process of finding help easier than ours was. It has grown into so much more. The friendships I have made, and the people I have connected with bring an incredible fullness to my life. While some friendships have faded since I started this, for whatever reason, I know there is a purpose to what I am doing, a reason I was given this opportunity.  

I am fueled to continue by your feedback, and any suggestions are always welcome so please email me at hollyoconnell@apathtohope.org
