Well, I have to say there is simply nothing like God math. If you haven't experienced it, you are missing something quite remarkable. Hopefully this post will give you a glimpse of God math. It's pretty simple actually... you take a little bit of your time and/or resources + a little bit of from several others + God's blessings = an incredible abundance! If you will just say yes to an idea or plan He has for you, He will add it to others and you will experience INCREDIBLE! It's a lot of fun!
So, with all that said, the delivery for Christmas to the CVICU was wonderful. And, with as full as they are (unfortunately) this was needed. We delivered the following:
48 flannel blankets - these are used also as the bedding under the baby for a pretty and soft bed
22 fleece blankets - these are made a little smaller than the big ones at the store so they can be used in the small area
23 lovies - these ultra soft and cuddly blankets are the ultimate snuggling item and they were all backed with Christmas red and green satin
3 flannel quilts - these are so precious
15 hats - cute, cute, cute!
35 shirts - all done in Christmas fabrics so the babies will have cute outfits to celebrate
And of course - a big box of chocolate for the amazing staff of the CVICU!!!
Spending Christmas in a hospital makes it VERY hard to feel like Christmas. And, it's hard to have joy when you are in the worst circumstances you can imagine enduring. These gifts let these parents know that someone cares about them and cares about their little one. What a wonderful way to show the meaning of Christmas - God loves us so much He sent his son.
Have a very Merry Christmas and may you enjoy many, many blessings!!! Love you all! Thank you for being part of this group and working to make a difference in this world. Enjoy the photos of the items delivered!
