This is today's post. There will be no pictures, no decorating and no cooking. I have been a nonprofit professional for most of my career, and I love it. I believe that God put us on this earth to use our strengths and talents to help people. My strengths are in public relations, marketing and fund raising, and I use them for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Cystic fibrosis is a life threatening, genetic disease that affects the respiratory system, as well as the digestive system. The CF Foundation has made tremendous progress with wonderful drugs and treatments to help kids and young adults live longer, healthier lives. Parents who had babies with CF in the early 80's were told their babies might not make it to college. Now many of those same kids are in the early 20's and doing pretty well.
Unfortunately, there are still too many kids and young adults, who succumb to CF, and I hate it. One of our CF patients, a 15-year-old girl, passed away yesterday. To make things even worse, her older sister also has CF, and she's currently in the hospital with an infection and fever. I am beyond heartbroken about this today.
I won't use my blog to solicit for the CF Foundation, other than to say if you ever need a cause to contribute to or volunteer for, you can't go wrong with the CF Foundation.
Tomorrow's post will be about my Thanksgiving tablescape and menu. But for today, I'm going to hug my kids a little tighter and be thankful for my blessings.
