Have a Grateful Christmas

The other day I was going to meet a dear friend of mine for coffee. I instead got a jolt of reality. She called me with a family emergency, but it wasn't a sick kid or car trouble - a close family member had been killed in a terrible car accident. Just like that life can be gone... so I will cherish my family all the more this holiday season and say a small prayer for those who are less fortunate.

P.S. This year my husband and I made our yearly Christmas donation to St. Jude Hospital. Check out their website at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Give the gift of HOPE.

About St. Jude's
_
St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.
_
St. Jude researchers are published and cited more often in high impact publications than any other private pediatric oncology research institution in America. St. Jude is a place where many doctors send some of their sickest patients and toughest cases. A place where cutting-edge research and revolutionary discoveries happen every day. We've built America's second-largest health-care charity so the science never stops.
_
All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated without regard to the family's ability to pay.

Sabina,

You are so special. Your daily posts never fail to inspire me.

I chose a local food pantry as my holiday gift recipient. There is still time for St. Jude's too.

It's a wonderful way to give back - especially to children. I'd like to mention that St. Jude was started by actor Danny Thomas. His daughter Marlo has carried the torch after his death. She was the surprise guest at a large fund raiser fashion show I attended in Chicago a couple years ago. Her stories of hope and triumph were unbelievable.
