Still Thinking About Texas

This will stick with me a long time. What a priceless gift to spend time with these exceptional families! I will be forever grateful for so many precious memories in one weekend. Some memories are unique to our group, some to the host family and the rest to the Dallas area.

Indelible Moment

One of the moments I will NEVER forget from the entire weekend. This sweet young man reached out to me. My job was to sing to him as he played this little piano. When the song had no words, the cow would dance. You must know, my singing has never been this appreciated. I felt like a star! Everyone in the room was fortunate that the piano didn’t play New York, New York but I didn’t grow tired of “Jingle Bells” or “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” either. We laughed, we giggled and we connected. This young man is smart, loving and a treasure. At the age of 18, he has defeated the odds beyond measure. What a precious moment for me. Thank you for letting me share it with you.
