Giving With Open Hearts and Hands

A story is told about an older person who told a younger person to reach down at the beach and pick up two handfuls of sand. “Now,” said the elder, “keep one hand open and clench the other into as tight of a fist as you possibly can.” The elder continued, “Open the clenched fist and compare how much sand you have in each hand—the hand you clenched and the one you left open. Which one has the most sand in it?”

Surprised, the younger person replied, “It is the open hand.”

There are those who go through lives with hands clenched tightly, while others hold their hands open. The residents who have been brave enough leave behind life as it was, in order to embrace a new life at Redstone, are living with open hands. Sometimes we have to let go of one phase in our lives in order to embrace the next. The generous donors who provide gifts to Redstone also know about living with open hands. They give simply because they want to improve the lives of seniors and they make our mission possible.

We are so grateful for those who support our mission. Your open hands have helped to make Redstone a beautiful place to live, work, and volunteer. If you are considering a gift, please know that your gift will be valued and appreciated and used as you wish. If you would like more information about making a gift, please feel free to contact me.

Together, with open hands and hearts, we are creating better lives for our cherished seniors at Redstone.

Gratefully,
Lisa M. Dormire
