THANKFUL...hospital stay thanksgiving

I just thought this had a cool vibe look!!


Taking a walk in the corridor.


Do I really have to smile for this right now?



I don't know what else to say...I just love these photos of Bryce with his daddy and Glenn with his precious son. Time to go back.




Well, would you believe me if I told you that we had much to be thankful for? Bryce got his buns kicked pretty hard in Nov. from the intense repeat phase 4. I am still reeling a bit. We were at the hospital for 15 days. Many families stay for weeks and months. Glenn, thankfully, had a four day weekend and we were able to procure a suite at the Ronald McDonald House. Glenn slept there with the troops and came to the room every day and spent the whole day. The RMH served thanksgiving food and so did a nice women who just came to the floor by herself with food!! I can think of so many things I can do to help others some day. Also, if you ever want to save the tabs from your pop cans, the RMH earns many funds by cashing those in each year. I can take them up for you. Anyway, Bryce was very ill, but was getting better each day and we had to get him out walking. He was more stoic and quiet than ever in his life that 2 weeks. Here he is getting closer to his release and looking much better. Dad and I cheered him up when he got too tired to finish the walk back to the room. See the video below. :) SHhhhh. Don't tell the head honchos. Hey, we got him to smile! Hope you enjoy a splash of humor during our long stay away from home.

Why MAGNANIMOUS?

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:
MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.
