To celebrate Christmas and the Holiday Season, we thought it was only fitting that we, the people behind Homes for Heroes®, share what our Christmas Wishes are for this year. But, before we get to what our wishes are, we would like to thank our nation’s every day heroes. You are appreciated more than you know and without you, some of our wishes wouldn’t be possible!
Kathy, Affiliate Success Team- “My wish is to have my entire family together.”
Julie, Sales Director- “My Christmas wish: Good health, prosperity, happiness and love for all mankind!”
Chad, Sales Director- “Rather than a Christmas Wish, I am grateful for my family, friends and my job at Homes for Heroes, which allows me to make a difference in the areas I manage.”
Melissa, Office Administrator- “I’m lucky enough to already have my Christmas Wish granted; I have wonderful family and friends that I love and care about.”
John, Support Services and Business Affiliates- “My Christmas Wish is to have a healthy baby girl after the new year!”
Annie, Sales Director- “My Christmas Wish is that all prodigal sons and daughters come home and be reconciled to both God and their family!”
Umila, Payments- “My Christmas wish is for a better 2017; good health, smile more, stress less and a prosperous next year.”
Abby, National Director- ”With all the stuff going on in the world, all the busy to-do’s we fill our lives with and the laundry list of things we want, my wish for this holiday season is that everyone can take a minute to slow down and truly enjoy what’s really important to them.
“Recently, I can’t help but notice all the stories I hear and see that put things into perspective. Whether it’s one of our affiliates that just underwent surgery for a sudden brain tumor or one of the many stories from our 12 Days of Christmas Miracles; such as a single mom working the night shift as a correctional officer just to survive and provide for her children, or a firefighter who has taken on the care of two little girls to help provide for them and give them a chance at a better life and let us not forget all of our military members serving overseas and not afforded the opportunity to be with their families during this time because they are protecting our freedom. It makes some of my own worries or troubles seem inconsequential and makes me appreciate all the amazing blessings my life is filled with. My family, my friends, my home, my health and a career that fulfills me because it’s purposeful and is my passion.
“So this holiday season, I wish that everyone is able to enjoy their own life’s blessings. That they’re surrounded by family and friends, that it’s filled with warmth and love, and that we find ourselves doing the very things that makes our hearts smile!”
Kim, Bookkeeper- “My 1st Wish is: I hope each person will go out of their way to help someone else. What a wonderful thing that would be if all 8 million people did a good deed!
“My 2nd wish is: Every child would know the love in their own lives that my kids enjoy every day.
“My 3rd wish is: That hunger disappears.
“As a wise man once said: ‘Know hunger and there can be no peace. But no hunger, then know peace.’
“I could make a million more, but these three are terrific ways to start.
“Merry Christmas, Friends!”
Jeff, Technical Director- “I wish I was a little bit taller
“I wish I was a baller
“I wish I had a girl who looked good, I would call her
“I wish I had a rabbit in a hat with a bat
“And a six four Impala
“I also wish for a great 2017.”
Lisa, Program Compliance & Legal Manager- “My Christmas wish for all is to Be Present. Experience and appreciate time with loved ones in the moment.”
Helen, Homes for Heroes Foundation- “I am going go with Peace on Earth as my wish (everything should fall into place then).”
Wendy, Success Director- “I’d like a great, god fearing, son-in-law for Christmas!”
Jen, Success Director- “My wish would be for unshakeable faith for all. Faith is seeing light with your heart, when all your eyes see is darkness. Merry Christmas!”
Steve, National Hero Outreach Coordinator- “My Holiday wishes are peace and prosperity.”
Ruth, President- “My wish is for more love, peace and caring in this world. ‘Think of your fellow man, lend him a helping hand. Put a little love in your heart.’ Keep those who serve in your thoughts and prayers during this holiday season. Many of them will be serving while we enjoy time with family and friends.”
Christopher, General Manager- “My wish is that everyone one on the Homes for Heroes team gets exactly what they wish for.”
Luke, Director of Marketing- “Rest.”
