Kind Regards: Nothing and no one is ever a burden

Janice and LindaThis month’s Kind Regards letter highlights Beacon Hill Life Enrichment Director Linda Johansen. Janice lives in a senior apartment and describes Linda’s selfless service and her ability to make each person feel important. Our mission is to honor God by enriching the lives and touching the hearts of older adults and we are humbled by the affirmation that these letters provide. Janice writes:

With a name badge full of Shining Star pins, Life Enrichment Director Linda Johansen could just rest on her laurels.

But not Linda.

She works hard planning and managing all the activities that go on here at Beacon Hill Terrace. Sometimes there is a clash; a trip to Orchestra Hall falls on the same day and time as a trip to the grocery store.

But Linda keeps us informed on changes and manages it well. She lifts walkers and hauls groceries in and out of the van. We are a group of older people who can be frustrating, but there's never a hint of frustration showing in Linda's speech or on her face.

Nothing and no one is ever a burden.

The biggest thing is Linda's desire for everyone here to feel like this is their home and to feel comfortable living here. Her attitude changes an apartment into a home for each of us. She must have a golden halo that we cannot see, but we can feel!

Kind Regards is a regular feature that shares the letters, hand written cards and emails we receive from those we serve. Beyond expressing appreciation, these letters remind us how important and needed our ministry is and inspire us to offer our best.
