An Unexpected Blessing

Why I want to bring Christmas to the Hospitalized Community this Holiday Season...

Every night I look at this photo and think of all that changed the week this photo was taken. This was the week my Grandpa Richard passed away. It feels weird even calling him that, he was always just Grandpa to me.

I grew up right next door to my grandparents. The first three years of my life was spent living with them, while my dad grew his practice. It seemed like a blessing when the house next door to my grandparents became available. But the real blessing was having all of my family on the same street a majority of my life. My grandparents took my cousins and I to and from school every day. After school, we would all do our homework so we could hang out and play afterwards. To say I am blessed is an understatement.
