Judy and I want to say Happy Thanksgiving to all our family and friends of Smile Again Ministries. We have been SO blessed this year as we've been able to speak hope and peace into the lives of so many hurting people.
Speaking of hurting moms and dads and surviving siblings - we'd also like to ask those of you who know someone who's lost a child to extend love and encouragement to those families. Even if it's been MANY years since they've lost a child please know this time of year can still bring tears and memories. So reach out with a card with simple messages that tell them you remember their loss.
One final thing - a quick update of our first week of our Celebration of Life fund raiser for 2016. We have just passed the $5,600 mark on our way to $65,000. One of our donors sent along a note stating that her children had asked her to give us a donation instead of buying them Christmas presents this year. How can we not be humbled by that kind of giving?
Thank you everyone for your support and love. Please don't forget to take a moment to give thanks for ALL you have as you look around the Thanksgiving dinner table. Our greatest gifts are those we love sitting around sharing bread and possibly pumpkin pie. We love you, Pat & Judy
