I was asked recently to take pictures at a celebration for one of my favorite places. Either you have heard of Shriners Hospital of you haven't – perhaps depending on whether you know a child with a muscular or skeletal abnormality.
Whether you've heard of the Hospital – supported by the generosity of the Shriners – or are only familiar with the Shrine Circus...I'm here to tell you that it is a one-of-a-kind place.
While monetary donations keep the doors open, gifts of the heart are what make it feel like home to the children who get their first arms/legs here and the parents who watch their children take first steps.
Watching patients accept the "Rainbow of Hope Award" I was amazed at the grace the Shriners patients have and how amazing their families can be. I was none-the-less thankful for the healthy limbs that my kids get to run on every day!
On Hospital Day everyone involved was honored – patients, staff, Shriners and the Women's Auxiliary. Here are a couple of pics from the day.
