December 9th, 2017
One year ago today our sister, friend, and founder Carin Jean Addams was called home. Although she bravely beat back cancer time and again for years, her temporary good-bye to us last December still came suddenly and our first Christmas without her came and went before we had a chance for it to set in. This year is obviously different. The season is now in full swing, December 9th has rolled back around on the calendar, and we’ve had the dreaded anticipation of knowing she won’t be with us in person.
Today will naturally bring some sadness. However, I invite you to join me and reflect on the countless happy times we were blessed to share with Carin. Take a few moments to remember her warm smile, infectious laugh, and adventurous spirit. Today, I’m going play the song “I Can Only Imagine” and think how this day last year our dear sister experienced a moment of overwhelming joy as she faced our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for the first time with an eternity absent of sickness ahead. Although I still miss her, especially today, that will warm my heart. I pray it does yours as well.
To Nurses, please know this charity Carin started and handed over to us still carries on her spirit and vision today and exists for you. Please connect with us. It would be an honor to communicate with you and have an opportunity to serve.
Wishing all of you a Christmas season full of warmth, joy, and many blessings.
