First picture- I met Kristina Sichra at Avita of Wells. She always made me laugh and smile, especially since I was floating every neighborhood and any ounce of kindness to me was coveted for my lack of knowing things and people. We became close and talked whenever we would see each other at work. Life happened and she had to leave our place of employment due to health reasons because she was having twins.
Second Picture- I also met Brianna Arbo at Avita of Wells. When I was new and quiet and terrified more than ever of making every mistake imaginable, she came over to me during one of my “Memory Making Baking” activities with the residents and made everything light-hearted and was kind to me in a way I truly took to heart. In the past couple of months, Brianna left Avita to pursue an awesome job as a Medical Assistant to further her career and I couldn’t be prouder of her.
For two years, I worked every single weekend. I loved all of my weekends with the residents and staff, but I truly missed going to church. I started going to Newlife Church in 2016 and loved it, but in 2017 when I started at Avita, I had to give that up if I wanted to work full time. This year, my amazing boss helped me to get Sundays off and I started going back to Newlife. Kristina saw me post my excitement on social media and asked me about it. She started coming and we both invited Brianna to come with us.
Today, I watched and jumped and screamed as I saw them get baptized, professing their Love for our Savior, Jesus. My heart is so full. I am in awe of everything. Thankful to God and all He does. What a day.
