My family and I thank you very much for the love offering you collected for us and gave on Christmas Eve. This was a surprise! We used part of the money to all go ice skating at the Galleria on New Year's Eve. Sarah and Sophia took friends, and we all—even Laura and I—got out there and went around the tree and had a great time!
"It's a lot easier if you just let go of the rail and skate."
I was scared that one of us would fall and break something and we would see the New Year in at a nearby Emergency Room! I held on to the side rail for dear life. But then Sarah's friend Avery passed me, turned and said: "It's a lot easier if you let go of the rail and just skate." She was right. Not bad advice for life! Thank you for making this happen! Happy New Year!
