Ronald McDonald House

I never really knew what the Ronald McDonald house was. That is, until recently. My 16 year old son and I have reservations to stay there this week while he is undergoing tests at the hospital. We have to drive into the city and he has to be near the hospital for a couple of days.

The Ronald McDonald House is a charitable organization that provides temporary housing for children under the age of 21 and their families, while the child is undergoing medical care in local hospitals. This is for those who have to travel long distances and are too far from home. It is a blessing.

Yesterday, My parents (who live with us) and Amy (14) had a yard sale out in the front yard. They did really well. Amy sold quite a few things. At the end of the day, she came into the house, put all her money on the livingroom floor and counted it. Her brother was sitting in a chair nearby. Then she gave him half the money. Why? "Because," she said, "He is sick and cannot work anymore. I want him to have some money." What a precious sister. What dear children. Thank God.

What a sweetheart Amy is for doing that. You can tell her I said so. ;o)
My prayers are with Matthew and the doctors for their wisdom.
