Gratitude Abounds



As we have the past 4 years, we began our Thanksgiving celebrations by serving a Thanksgiving feast at LeBonheur Children's Hospital.  We served over 158 meals and met some amazing families.  But I can promise you, the blessing was received by those serving.  To be a part of something so amazing, so rewarding fills my heart with gratitude.




Today I am thankful for the experiences in my life that led to the creation of the Go Lucy Go Foundation.  Now, I'm not saying I am thankful for cancer because I'm not!  I've seen cancer destroy lives, tear families apart and kill precious children.  It is still a horror that haunts my family every single day of our lives.  However, God tells us to "give thanks in everything," and that's what I try to do.


So today I am thankful for the nurses, the doctors, the social workers, the child life specialists, the janitors and every other person who works to keep our amazing hospital running.  I am thankful for their love of children and their commitment to taking care of our community.  I am most thankful for the friendships that we have made through this journey.





Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours.  

"Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus."  1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
