I love the 10,000 Maniacs song “These Are Days.” It is about those contented moments when, in their words, “you know it’s true that you are blessed and lucky.” They can be experienced on “big” occasions or in everyday moments. As an individual, I certainly felt this way surrounded by family and friends on my wedding day, and I feel this way sometimes while having a simple conversation with my young daughter. As an agency, JF&CS feels this way every year at our Annual Benefit. Last Saturday night I volunteered at the Benefit, and attending for the first time, I was awestruck by the outpouring of generosity. As a current employee and former client, I am genuinely moved by the support of so many individuals and organizations that may not personally know the families that JF&CS serves but recognize the impact that we have on their lives.
