Smiles, smiles, smiles! So many smiles at Day 1 of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Radiothon. But not all are created equal, because not all of the kids can smile. Not that they don’t try or want to. It’s just that some of these wonderful children can’t physically do it. But now wait, I’m not saying we should pity these kids, in fact that would be an insult to them and their families. I’m saying that all of these kids are smiling in some way that just warms your heart. Regardless of the challenge, they smile. Regardless of the sickness, they smile. Cancer? They smile. Living in a wheel chair.? They dare you to race them down the hall here at Gundersen, and they smile the whole time. Why? Because they know life is precious, and despite the challenges there’s still so much to smile about. And it’s not just the kids, it’s the parents as well. They smile because they feel blessed to have this child in their lives. It’s an awesome thing to see, and something we can all learn from. So call and pledge, ok? 608-784-5437. Or better yet, stop down here and see the smiles for yourself. We’re here until 6 today, 6am to 6pm tomorrow and 8am to 2pm Saturday.
