Hope form he holidays and other blessings
Rick and I have had so many blessings and miracles along our journey. We have had family give us a place to stay in Utah, we have had meals and visits and kindness from friends as well as complete strangers. Our friends and employees did a baked food sale, white market flee market sponsored a benefit for us. Recently a group of friends put together a fund raiser,"hope for the holidays", it was at the Madison, Rigby basketball game. Many generous donations were given for a raffle and many cash donations were given. The announcer announced we were there and that we wanted to say thank you,the crowd rose and gave Rick a standing ovation. We were both moved to tears. I can't tell you how much the donations have helped lightened our load, but how hard it is to accept such gifts. I have always loved to give but never have enjoyed receiving as much. but the spirit that accompanied these kind acts has been so powerful! I am grateful to have such amazing people in our life. I am grateful to have witnessed the spirit of generosity,love and Christ like service.Thank you to all! We love you!
