Ronald McDonald House

Last night my department was responsible for preparing and feeding the guests at the Phoenix Ronald McDonald House. It was a great experience, that made me grateful for my good health and the good health of my children.

It was also a fantastic team building event for crew that went and participated at the house. I was humbled by the graciousness of the families that we fed. They were so thankful to us that I was awestruck by it because I have done a lot of similar charity events over the past 10 years and rarely do you have someone from EVERY family come back and thank you for coming and feeding them.

I will be doing this again and again, I truly received more than I gave.
