A Home Away From Home

Right now I am sitting in Noah's hospital room rocking him while he sleeps. As I sit here and think about the last 6 weeks I am over come with gratitude. We have been given so much. From prayers and support, to a place to sleep while we are way from home, to a new heart for my son.
I decided to look up the Ronald McDonald House charities on my phone as I sit here. Looking at their website (and staying there for the past month) I am humbled by their service. And what a wonderful service it is. To provide a home away from home for families with sick children. If I hadn't found myself in this situation and with this need I don't know if I would have realized there were people out there needing this. But now that I have, I can not wait to repay them for their service. When I am finally able to come home I plan on bring meals and other items of need to my local RMH. And if anyone reading this is looking for a service project, I urge you to do the same.
At the RMH here in Denver, they have volunteers come in and give massages every week. I thanked the man who came in last week and he told me that he was repaying hsi debt since 20 years earlier he had benefitted from the RMH charities. I myself, can not wait to do the same.


  1. Isn't it amazing?

    I've benefited from the Ronald McDonald House, as well. It is an phenomenal glance into Utopia.

    I've followed your plight, from the get go, and I am simply stunned at the incredible journey you have traveled.

    I am so happy for you, and your beautiful family-

    May blessings abound, continue.

  2. Oh man...I can't even begin to tell you what it meant to me to walk into that bathroom at the RMH to find shampoo, soap, etc. We were two hours away from home and we had come straight from the hospital (I had just delivered Gus)so all we had were a few things. If I had not had those items available to me I would have had to go to Walmart...and you just don't do that in the midst of crisis...know what I mean?! lol!!

    I'm glad there's a RMH there for you!
