Today was the day I made my finals donation of the year to Brenner Children’s Hospital.
I knew it was a lot, but seeing it all come together was just amazing!
As we drove to the children’s hospital, I had the local Christmas music station on, and it happened to be the big funding drive for the children’s hospital….you know, where during the music, they interject with stories from families.
I couldn’t believe how much I was moved to tears. I was warned how when you become a mother emotions can hit you strong, but man!
I glanced in my passenger mirror and saw my healthy happy son in his car seat, dancing away to the music. The fact struck me that I’ve taken him 4 times now to the children’s hospital but never because of him or my daughter needing to have attention there…we’ve only ever been there purely for donating items.
I cannot imagine how hard this season must be on parents who are going through the unknown with their child. Sigh….all I can do is continue to say little prayers for the people there and for continued health. I also say thanks for all of the support people; doctors, nurses, receptionists, valets. They all work in concert to create as welcoming and loving environment as possible. It shows.
I am grateful that there are such exceptional facilities out there to help not only the children, but the families as well.
I hope that they will enjoy the peg people and homes I’ve made for them. I hope that these things, while material, will bring smiles and joy to those who receive them.
I love so very much the fact that I am able to create for these special people.
I will always keep to heart that…They Will Love Your Effort<3
