It's hard to believe that over 10 years have passed since I first moved to Clarkston, was introduced to Embrace, and attended my very first birth with a refugee neighbor. These past 10 years have been so full. So full of excitement and new life, of struggles and pain, and finding joy and love on the other side and through those difficulties, very much like the process of labor and birth. I've had the privilege of getting to work with incredible team members at Embrace, partners in the Clarkston area, and getting to serve alongside, pour into and be poured into by hundreds of incredible volunteers and supporters. No, I'm not leaving... I know a paragraph that starts like this may sound like that :) However, a bit of change is on the horizon for me. I am so blessed to get to take a 4 month sabbatical and when I return will be transitioning my role a bit. More on that to come. But, I just wanted to take a moment for gratitude for all the blessings of these past 10 years, these blessings that include each of you who make this good work possible. Every now and then the question gets asked in a group or conversation, "What is your dream job?" and I think it's pretty cool that I always get to say, "I have my dream job, at Embrace!" See you all in a few months when I return!
Heidi Goes on Sabbatical!
