Thankful Thursday

After being home for nearly a week, this Thankful Thursday goes out to the many friends we have at RMH.  Here are just two of many!!  



It makes being away from home SO much more bearable when you are among people who "get" you...people who understand what it's like to be in and out of the hospital...people who realize the necessity of being germ-cautious...people who celebrate every little accomplishment right along with you...people who see kids, not disabilities.

So thank you to our RMH family--ALL of you.  You all hold a special place in my heart, and we have a bond that most just cannot understand.  

In related news, this article just came out sharing that research shows that Ronald McDonald Houses help kids heal faster.  I firmly believe this.  

If you have never volunteered at RMH, please consider doing it.  Join us the next time we go up for an activity hour.  Make dinner.  Sort soda tabs.  Fill the mailboxes with treats for the families.  Clean the playroom.  Whatever you do, you won't regret it!  If you go, you'll see why we call it The House That Love Built.

Does it help to know that I "get" all of this, as well? ;)
