Ten Kids Too Many
Grandma J loves making fleece no-sew blankets for the kids in the Peds Onc ward at the hospital. Last year it was Dell Children's Hospital in Austin, Texas. The year before it was Scott and White Hospital in Temple, Texas. This year she is bringing them to Scott and White Hospital again.
She only made ten blankets this year. Well actually, this year she made five more for her own Grandkids who had put in special orders. But seriously, there are more than ten kids in this cancer ward for Christmas. No child should be in the hospital on Christmas. Actually, no child should have cancer! Wouldn't it be wonderful if someday Grandma J called the Child Life Specialist on the cancer ward and she told Grandma J that they don't need any blankets because they didn't have any kids with cancer?
So, since she only had ten blankets, Grandma J decided to give gift cards to four moms. She will let the Child Life Director hand them out.....those people are the best at determining people's needs!
The Child Life Director is meeting Grandma J tomorrow morning. And Grandma J is super excited because the director remembered Grandma J from two years ago!
I'm telling you.....when someone that important says they remember Grandma J it almost brings her to her knees.
