Most people hate Mondays. I’ll admit having a nice weekend does make it hard to come into the office sometimes. But I always think of our kids here at Kids Wish Network and that makes it easier for me to get out of bed on Monday mornings.
Most Mondays around here are pretty exciting. I get to find out what wishes are happening during the upcoming week. I get new wish applications in the mail. I also get to hear all the hustle and bustle of new phone messages and emails. It keeps the day exciting and makes Mondays really fly by.
I just heard Jen say that she got new truck parts donated for one of her wish kid’s truck makeovers. It’s always exciting to hear about donors and supporters who go the extra mile to help Kids Wish Network create special memories for our kids. And it’s awesome to see the wish coordinators get stuff for the wishes. It truly is a testament to how hard our Kids Wish Network wish coordinators work to make dreams come true!
One of my favorite things about Mondays is hearing our wish coordinators talk to their new wish kids that have been assigned. I get to hear our coordinators talk to the kids and sometimes I get to hear the kids say some really cute things. I’ll never forget Marcus’ initial interview. He literally had the whole office cracking up. Between saying he wanted a SpongeBob bathtub (which we still haven’t quite figured out what that is) and a Power Ranger rocket ship, we were all having a hard time keeping a straight face.
So, even though I am pretty tired when Monday morning rolls around, our kids help me shake off the sleep and get into gear. And for the most part, Mondays – and all days for that matter – are fun days at Kids Wish Network!
