And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is in the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercessions for the saints according to the will of God, and we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are called according to his purpose” (Romans 8:27-28) As I look back over the years at Apostolic Home, I have been thankful to the Lord for all gifts and opportunities given, both in terms of modes of service-as well as for moments of growth and self donation. These have not been isolated occurrences, but encounters inextricably woven into the very fabric of my being and identity, for life. They are who I am. I recall the hundreds of IDT meetings with families and residents beside, Ms. (Name Withheld) saying goodbye to her and promising to take care of her daughter, saying goodbye to many dying residents, arranging memorial services. I think of the Multi-purpose Room getting comfortable equipment for the residents, the pride of forming students on OT and in other areas. There have been tough surveys and the plans of correction, the relationship with other professionals across Illinois, the changes, the closure of facilities. I have, with each year, grown in understanding of families - their joys, their struggles and vulnerabilities. The staff I lead have been a light to me and I truly love them. I wish I could have told them how much they mean to me more often. ~staff
