Lori Harris lives in LAC with her husband of 30 years. She started delivering our Alloway-Quinton Route over six years ago. At the time she found that with all of her children grown, she had less responsibilities and more time that she wanted to utilize helping others in the community.
When we asked her to tell us about herself, she had much more to say about her family’s accomplishments than her own. Needless to say this wife and mother of 3, grandmother to 2 is very proud of her family.
Lori shared with us about a special friendship that she developed with a client. She said that he was so easy to talk to so she would save him as the last stop on the route sometimes spending than an hour with him. He would offer her good advice and they made each other laugh.
“My motto is: Live life each day with a smile on your face, laughter, and love in your heart, give compassion to others and always remember that even though we might come across hard times in our own lives, there is always someone else who is facing harder times than you. Be thankful for all of your blessings and not bitter for those you didn’t receive.”
Lori, your continued support is appreciated by Meals on Wheels.
