Sneaky coffee with Dianna
Overwhelming love and sweet notes and gifts
Wendy’s here! Wendy’s here!
Getting back into my office and my many roles and remembering why I love them all
Seeing this year’s hospital staff walking around in scrubs again
Seeing the day crew arrive and then seeing them around the ship with their beautiful smiles and joy bubbling over
Finally getting settled back in my cabin
Wendy time and lots of laughs
Four nurses who organized three of my work spaces!
The HOPE Center is open
Sprinkles make an already good day even better
Three meals a day that are prepared for me… Even when I have to wait in line for what feels like forever, I am still lucky and thankful to have more than enough food
The housekeeping day crew are back which means there is some beautiful singing coming from the laundry room twice every day
Comfort food with the Cash’s
Sunday girls day at Victoria Beach and reminders of other great moments
Girls night with lots of laughs and an amazing group of women who make this place all that much more beautiful
The expectant buzz that happens every year just before the hospital opens
Coconut and market run with Wendy
Getting to play with the Wall kids for a few hours and some really great meals shared with them too
Leaders who pray boldly, stop to smell the brown sugar, make tough decisions and do it all with such a sense of peace and authenticity.
The hospital is open. The OR is ready. And I happened to walk by just when one of the first patients came on board with their excited and slightly nervous smile, and it was my joy to shake their hands and say welcome…. I truly am in love with this place and today is just the first in many wildly amazing days of powerful transformation.
