Our first answer to prayer came at 9:00 AM when we found out we got into the Ronald McDonald House. Our second answer came when Lauren, my cousin who is a college student at Penn State Harrisburg campus, was able to meet us at the Ronald McDonald House and help me get settled.
We arrived about 4:00. Leo has tried to leave numerous times and is not as impressed with the place as I am. The house is beautiful. The volunteers wonderful. The amount of food in this house is unreal. Dinner was ham, potatoes, baked pineapple, salad with all the trimmings, 3 different kinds of bread, rolls, and green beans. Then there were at least 6 deserts all prepared by volunteers. Everything was delicious. There are 2 refrigerators with food that is there for anyone to use. I am a stress eater so none of this is a good thing. Tonight's dinner will be put in the frig for anyone to use for lunches for tomorrow. There is a coffee station and a keurig machine! Tyler and Jordan would be in food heaven here. There is even a 25 cent soda machine.
There is an outside playground and a toy room.
Our one and only smile came when Leo met Blizzard the therapy dog.
There is a therapy dog here each night and even a pot belly pig comes to visit.
This is a house full of stories. There are probably about 25 families here each with a child receiving some sort of care that requires them to be away from home. We met a little girl named Miracle tonight who is 6 years old. She truly is a miracle for all she has been through in her short life.
Tomorrow we begin feeding therapy. Let the games begin...
