I am most thankful for
Phyllis who saved my life, after both my grandparents
died. I felt lost and unneeded, for they had depended
on me for many years as their caregiver. I though
to be needed in life was the answer. It wasn't. To
be appropriately needed is only one part of living
life. Phyllis guides me in the direction of living
life through her Encouragement. I received the "Gem
of Encouragement That Begins to Glow Within My Soul"
through the journey of my Personality Profile. Phyllis
has and does continue to counsel and coach me.
I am able to understand who I was and better understand
through the Personality Profile the truth of who I
am today. It is a blessing to love myself appropriately.
The gentle, consistent guidance of Phyllis' Encouragement
helps me, to live out of my strengths instead of my
weaknesses is an ongoing process of the Personality
Profile. To "uncover and discover the true treasure
of ME" gives me "Winds of Courage"
through the breeze of her glowing, knowing, "Golden
This lifts me to a place where I want to live and
appreciate life with all its circumstances and challenges.
Through Phyllis' Encouragement why don't you learn
to live life through the discover of the "True
View of You." The personality Profile enlivens
and enriches you to love thyself as I am presently
Phyllis, thank you so much for all of your help and
support over the past year. You have been invaluable
in providing a much needed resource at a time of such
need and confusion during this time in my life. I
have kept a file folder in my file cabinet entitled
"Comfort" which contains the handouts from
the support group you held at Encouragement Factor.
Just knowing it's there makes me feel better! At a
time when I needed support you filled a much needed
void which is lacking from the divorce arena. You
have brought kindness, understanding and acceptance
into my life. Both you and Lorene have life experiences,,
respect and compassion which you bring to all those
lives you touch.
I hope for you continued success in the Encouragement
Factor resource. Every community would benefit from
the unique gift of love, understanding and support
you provide for those in need. We are truly blessed
to have you here in Fallbrook. I am much stronger
now, in part to your help and I am forever grateful.
Phyllis Sweeney was and has been a great help to
me after the death of my husband of 40 years. She
reached out to me and everyone in the support group.
She always had an open ear or a shoulder to cry on.
She is a very optimistic person and full of life.
I am so thankful for Phyllis and the Encouragement
Phyllis Sweeny was instrumental in helping me when
I really needed guidance in my life. Going through
a bad time, she was there to help and reach out with
words of Encouragement. She cares and listens to all
who have problems, made suggestions, and handed out
information that was very helpful. The support group
PEDLO she held showed me that I was not alone, that
I could share my prolems with others and reach them.
Phyllis is always upbeat even if she is expriencing
something of her own. I will always appreciate her
help and kindness I received at PEDLO.
I have been a regular at the Encouragement Factor
for several months, more exactly with Phyllis Sweeney
and the Alzheimers Support Group. Because of their
help I have found ways to improve my own outlook on
life which has had a wonderful emotional side effect
on the two family members I take care of. My Father
and his wife Nancy are not going to get better. Learning
to deal with this and the other family members who
do not live here or visit has been difficult but enlightening.
I hope to build bridges to them in time with the help
and support of Phyllis. She may be the strongest person
I have every met and brings strength out in me that
I know is there it just got caught in the frustration
of gloom. Now that I see that, I feel that, I know
it. Life is better and good. Thanks Phyllis.
Phyllis Sweeney has helped me when coming to PEDLO
Support Group. I thought I knew how to cope with things
until the death of my dear wife. Phyllis also gave
me some one-on-one time when I needed some extra help.
I recommended her to some former colleagues to do
workshops and seminars for lawyers and trust administrators.
She is kind, compassionate and very good at assisting
and guiding people during difficult times. I appreciate
Phyllis has been such a great help to me when my
husband died. Also at other times when big decisiosn
had to be made. I had moved back to where family is
in New Jersey and there is nothing here like the PEDLO
support gorup at Fallbrook. Not even at my church
or at any churches on a regular basis. I miss the
support and the people who come and recieve support
and offer it to others as well. I miss it very much.
