Monday Moment: Gratification

Today's post is about a most gratifying moment that happened today.

Most of you know I volunteer for my daughter's school.  Actually, both my husband and I do.  This school year we've capitalized on last year's experiences and continued to work with local and online businesses to increase revenue.  After all, increased revenue means increased benefits for the school!  With that said, we don't engage with businesses holding our hand out.  Rather, we engage them with a handshake - an earnest interest to generate a partnership.  We want their support, but we also want to support them.  We work to identify meaningful ways in which to get their business exposure in our school community.

Today, we received numerous responses to sponsorship requests!  And every single response was for what we'd consider a substantial amount, or the potential thereof.

Upon reading the emails, I was overwhelmed with emotion.  I felt joy, gratitude, excitement and immense gratification.  The moment offered such a sense of validation for all we've worked to accomplish.  We've garnered more money than last year (don't know exact figures yet).  That makes me very excited!

I'm still in shock.  It kinda feels like we won the lottery.  We didn't.  We wish we could win the lottery for the school, but this is as close as we're gonna get.

We are thrilled for every single donation made to our school and so grateful for their partnership. We will continue to work hard for the school and the businesses that have shown such immense support.

Be open to what comes.
