The best things in life…

31 Jul

“The best things in life
are the people we love,
the places we’ve been,
and the memories along the way…”

St. Mary’s Center will forever be special to me.  I have gained so much more than I could ever imagine.  The stories that were exchanged, the laughter, and the warmth with just a simple smile are unforgettable.  Every person that I have interacted with over the two months have touched and impacted my life in some way without them even knowing.  My co-workers and clients have made St. Mary’s Center a place I can call home.  With the program being over, there is no way that I can walk away from St. Mary’s Center and let go of all my experiences.  Two months was way too short for me.  I love working there so much, and I know I will continue to work with this site.  I feel like there is more work and effort that I can do there for both myself and others. Once Summer ends, and I figure out what my schedule is like for my senior year, I will make my way back to St. Mary’s Center whether it be volunteering every week, a few times a month, or just for big events.  I have so much to give back to St. Mary’s Center for all the joy it has brought me, and I know St. Mary’s Center has more for me and my growth.

I am forever grateful for this Micah Fellowship experience.  This has most definitely been the biggest challenge that I chose to put myself through.  Throughout my college years, I have piled on commitments, work, and responsibilities, but I felt like nothing could faze me.  Micah has pushed me out of my comfort zone, out of bounds even, and I couldn’t have been more proud of myself and the other 5 fellows.  I know we all used our voices. We also learned a lot about ourselves, and we all made decisions based on our self-care.  I saw a lot of growth in myself and my peers, and I know Micah has impacted us in some way moving forward.  Though times were not always perfect, I know that the rough moments were defining moments for each other and ourselves.  I will always look back at the Micah program as it has taught me many life skills within the two months.
