For us, Comfort Keepers of Columbus, OH has always been about blessing others. As we celebrate our 15 year anniversary we feel that we've been “Blessed to be a Blessing.” We are grateful to the Central Ohio community for supporting Comfort Keepers, and we want to give back. In this spirit of Blessing, and to show our immense gratitude for the blessing we've received in being a part of so many wonderful lives these past fifteen years, we came up with our Gifts of Gratitude celebration (GOG for short).
From those first days around their kitchen table fifteen years ago, Tim and Tricia McConnell have never lost sight of the wonderful ministry that Comfort Keepers is. Like the McConnell Family’s “kitchen table ministry” mindset, the Gifts of Gratitude program is simple. We will choose 15 older adults whose stories most reflect the spirit of these gifts,(see guidelines).
We would love to know about your loved one: Why are they special to you? Why do you want to honor them? Were they especially kind to you when you were younger? Did they volunteer for a cause that touched you? Were they always giving? Understanding? Comforting?
Simply submit your story of how they blessed you, in as much detail as possible.
Then, tell us how you would like to bless them: Have they always wanted to visit Niagara Falls, the White House, or the Grand Canyon? Would a hot-air balloon ride, family celebration, or trip across the country to surprise them with their brand-new great grandchild best show them how much they’re loved? Maybe it’s dancing lessons, or a family portrait? A chance to capture their childhood stories on video? Is there a celebrity they would love to meet, or a concert hall they've always wanted to play in?
Submit your story for review, and yours might just be one of the 15 seniors to receive a Gift of Gratitude from us.
