Time has passed so quickly, it seems just like yesterday we were in wonderful Nashville Tennessee. As the Thanksgiving holiday has passed I couldn’t help to think of how Thankful I am. Our trip was a trip of a lifetime, one that we will never forget, one that memories were made that will last forever. Mazie’s wish trip was so much more than a wish trip, it was a recharge for us as a family, it was a time away from appointments, doctor’s, therapy appointments and phone calls.
This trip came at the most perfect time. We all needed a break, time away and most of all time as a family. From our fabulous hotel and their staff, to meals, limo rides and most of all The Grand Ole Opry was simply amazing. The outpouring from everyone that we met during our trip was like no other. Mazie was seen for the amazing kid that she is, not for her condition, but just as a really great kid. Seriously how many kids can say Tim Mcgraw said she was awesome and that she hung out with Rascal Flatts and even went on stage.
Our trip exceeded any expectations that we could have ever had. What Kids Wish Network does is something you can’t put a price on, it’s something so great it’s hard to put into words, but the word that comes to my mind over and over again is “Blessing” Because what you all do is truly a blessing to families. We as a family can’t ever thank you enough for our once in a lifetime adventure, and the amazing staff at Kids Wish Network along with all the sponsors are real life wish fairies, making wishes not only come true for kids but making wishes come true for us too…. by giving our children the ability to forget even for just a week about all the have dealt with and are facing in their young lives.
