St. Giles CCW Woman of the Year is…
The woman of the year for 2019-2020 is a woman who has seen many changes in the past couple of months. Her life today looks so different than it did at the beginning of the year.
She is checking in on family members, friends and neighbors.
She may be finding new levels of patience as she tries to home school her children or learns to use Zoom on a device.
(How does this mute button work?)
She has made sacrifices. She has watched her children, friends, and neighbors have major life events; weddings, proms, graduations, and summer camps cancelled.
She has cried many times and is heartbroken for any loved ones she has lost in these last months. She was not able to be with them.
She has held her breath with every cough or sneeze of a loved one and prayed that it is not a symptom of COVID-19.
She found the courage to ask for help completing what before was an every day task such as getting groceries and picking up medicine. She never thought she’d have to do that.
She wakes up each morning and has to ask what day is it? How many days longer?
Our 2019-2020 WOMAN OF THE YEAR IS….. YOU – ALL OF THE WOMEN OF THE ST. GILES COMMUNITY!
You are strong and we will get through this and celebrate all of you together when we can and we so look forward to that day!
