Ok, often I have a problem with a variety of agencies... I hate people slipping between the cracks and ending up hurt... yet again.
But today... today my heart is sailing.
I've always wanted to use that phrase- I always wondered what it would really feel like to have a "heart that was sailing", and now I know. Or at least.. know in part... because I've never really been sailing. (side note:: anyone want to take me sailing sometime? It's on my life list- I'll even write your name down as the person who's helped me accomplish that goal)
A few months back I was sent to a meeting of help agencies in our county. The meeting was in regards to a need that could be met if all the groups pulled together for a little bit, and if the main agency (running the meeting) was willing to take the project on.
I went to the meeting as a rep for work- but I threw in my two cents in regards to some things going on with GTI. I made a request, and figured it would be lost along the way. This was MONTHS ago. I sent an email or two, called twice... and that was the end. The project was completed last week.... I phoned this morning just to see if maybe, just maybe- something could be worked out for us still.
I gave my first name, and was about to explain the reason for my call when the woman said "oh! I was hoping that I'd hear from you this morning, I've got the packages all ready for you, I set them aside last week and they are under my desk- I'll put them at the front office with a note attached."
Seriously... that was very very cool.
