We cherish our volunteers for the gift of self they bring to their incredible work with clients at Kara. They are the wonderful people who breathe life and spirit into our mission to serve the bereaved in our communities. As we conclude Volunteer Appreciation Week, we send our heart-whole thanks and offer each of them a blessing as they continue their journey at Kara.
May the light of your soul guide you.
May the light of your soul bless the work you do with the secret love and warmth of your heart.
May you see in what you do the beauty of your own soul.
May the sacredness of your work bring healing, light, and renewal to those
who work with you and to those who see and receive your work.
May your work never weary you.
May it release within you wellsprings of refreshment, inspiration, and excitement.
May you be present in what you do.
May you never become lost in the bland absences.
May the day never burden.
May dawn find you awake and alert, approaching your new day with dreams, possibilities, and promises.
May evening find you gracious and fulfilled.
May you go into the night blessed, sheltered, and protected.
May your soul calm, console, and renew you.
