A Basketful of Memories

Seriously awesome kids.  I am so honored to have them in my life.

The basket has all kinds of wonderful in it:  an "I Spy" book, drawing paper and markers, puzzle books, candy (of course), chewing gum, snack crackers, juice drinks, dried fruit, trail mix, mixed nuts, playing cards, colored ink pens...I think that about covers it.  Nate found a really nice "Thinking of You" card that they all signed.

A nurse helped them find a place for it in the Family Lounge and was really excited about all the cool stuff they put in. 

We heard the piano playing on the main floor - a beautiful piece that the kids thought was the "player" piano.  Turns out someone was down there playing for us! 

On the way down in the elevator, we met the chaplain who was there with us when Phil was admitted to the hospital.  wow.

Nate had a really good idea - inspired by friends who cared for us when we were in need.  Just trusting now another family will find a little comfort when they need it.


  1. That is so awesome, and your previous post was just beautiful. What a great idea.

  2. I seem to be learning a bit more about your life just from this blog. The snow looks lovely and I absolutely love the house.

  3. You are right. Seriously awesome kids.
