Pillowcases and Smiles!

Last week, I loved receiving these in the mail

And was humbled to see the pillowcases stack up on tabletop

All in all, if we lined up the pillowcases we received, we could span an entire football field. Amazing!

We delivered pillowcases to every oncology patient


Every single chronically ill child in the hospital. This included patients with Cystic Fibrosis, Bone Marrow Transplants, Juvenile Arthritis, Diabetes, children on dialysis with chronic kidney disease and many others. I was unable to take pictures today, but hope to have some by the end of the week that I will certainly post! I can't wait to share the smiles on these precious kids faces!

We even left many "extras" for the Child Life staff at Children's to use as birthday presents and other treasures throughout the year. They are also planning on using many of the adorable Christmas pillowcases in the Sugar Plum Shop.

The Sugar Plum Shop is Children's way of empowering parents by providing access to free toys and gifts during the holidays when they may feel especially powerless about the fact that their child is spending time in the hospital. The shop is open Christmas Eve and Christmas day for patients in the hospital to still enjoy a bit of Christmas magic.

I am humbled to see what the Lord is doing with this ministry & appreciate each of you for making it a success. Please see the post about Project 2- crayon holders for orphans in Malawi, Africa! Keep up the good work & Merry Christmas!
