Time is Flying!

I can't believe this month is almost half way gone already...where does the time go? I have been missing Jennifer, my Mom and Dad so much these past weeks. Maybe it is because I have had the "crud" for so long. Kimberly has had it too...think I gave it to her for Christmas! We have said many times these past couple of weeks, how horrible it must have been for Jennifer to feel this way everyday!!! Bless her heart!! At least we know now that she isn't spending her days coughing and not being able to breathe! She is now free from all that misery and is happy and healthy!

I am excited that we will soon be starting another Bible study! I always feel so much better when I am concentrating on a study...keeps me in the Bible and I always learn so much!

We are beginning to plan to make more Jennifer Project bags for the kids at the hospital. We will do a Valentine theme this month...that will be fun and keep my mind busy. I love it when I go into the patient's room to do their treatment and they have one of our bags out making something. I think it is even more fun that the bags are anonomyous and they don't know who put them together for them. It is just good to know they are enjoying them and the bags are helping to pass the time while they are in the hospital. These children are so special...their courage and humor so inspire me. I feel so very grateful to be able to be working with them. I love talking to their parents as well as to them. They each have a unique quality that certainly tugs on my heart strings. I can remember once that Jennifer told me that had she not have had CF, she would have never met Dr. Warren and all the other peIople that were in her life because of CF! I cherish the memories that I have with Jennifer and her fight against CF...her strength, endurance and compassion for others. I can hardly wait until the day comes that CF stands for CURE FOUND! I have seen alot of changes over the last thirty years, and I truly believe this day will come!
