Thank You for Everyone's Love and Support YOUR Generous Gifts totaling $15,000 was a HUGE success in matching our $15,000 pledge/match to begin the "Give Our Gnomes a Home" kick off to create an outdoor family room for The Still Place guests and Host Families. I wish I could bake each one of you cookies, bring you a little of Harry Su's shine, or just come hug your neck. I am grateful for your generous gifts but I am even more grateful our paths have crossed if even for a moment or for many years. You are all treasured by me and Kitchens, Gnorma and Gnorman and the 88 families served to date. You have showered us with the gifts of precious time together, moments of stillness and big adventure.
"In the end, though, maybe we must all give up trying to pay back the people in this world who sustain our lives. In the end, maybe it's wiser to surrender before the miraculous scope of human generosity and to just keep saying thank you, forever and sincerely, for as long as we have voices." — Elizabeth Gilbert
