Restoring Hope Family Thanksgiving
On behalf of our Restoring Hope family, we would like to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving! May this week be a festive time of gatherings, loved ones, great food and for all of us to celebrate the many reasons we all have to be thankful for.
Just the other day, we celebrated the truly miraculous return home of one of our long-term guests who battled each and every day for his life and now incredibly will be able to sit at his own table for a turkey dinner. That same day, we also learned of the sad passing of another amazing friend whose family stayed here 60 plus times during her battle with cancer. She was so loved by everyone that passed through our doors and will be such a huge loss for us all. In both extreme cases, though, those families have taught us so many valuable lessons in what it truly means to be thankful for the moments we shared. As we gather for dinner on Thursday, they will be at the front of our thoughts as will so many of the families that have called Restoring Hope home this year.
Last year, we had transplant families here from 6 different states over Thanksgiving. Away from home, loved ones and traditional gatherings, we always work hard to celebrate the holidays together with a great feast and festive atmosphere that always feels just like home! We invite all guests that are staying with us on Thanksgiving to join us again this year for a great day of giving thanks!
