“Nothing is ever too much to do for a child.” Mary Virginia Merrick
The years have passed and my children have grown and now I get to relive so many happy memories of their own childhoods through my grandchildren! This past Saturday, December 17th, was my granddaughter Stella’s first birthday. It is tradition that my husband and I host our grandchildren’s first birthday parties. And as I was helping my daughter plan and prepare for the day, Mary Virginia Merrick’s words kept coming to my mind, “Nothing is ever too much to do for a child”. I realized that my daughter and I would do anything for this child because of our deep love for her.
A love very similar to this is what we all feel when we devote our free time to the various projects and fundraisers that benefit the children we all serve in our communities. Mary Virginia Merrick’s example of selfless devotion to children continues to inspire us today to do the same.
I hope each of your have a joyful, peaceful and beautiful Christmas filled with many special blessings which you are all so deserving of!
Thank you for all you do in the name of the Christ Child…
Until the New Year,
