I got a short note from my mother the other day and she closed it by telling me if the only prayer you ever say is “Thank You”, it is enough. Even after 56 years she is still trying to mold me into a better person. Always hopeful!
Certainly in my personal life there is much to be thankful for, but this is equally true in the big part of my life that is Ronald McDonald House Charities of Austin. For all of us there are far more thank you’s warranted than could ever be given, but that should never daunt me – or any of us – from taking every opportunity to point out the goodness shown to us by others – and to say thank you.
So I am taking these few minutes of your time to share a special thank you for our friends at Jackson Walker LLP. Since before I was part of Ronald McDonald House Charities, Jackson Walker LLP has been a strong and committed supporter of all we do for the families who look to us for care and support. Over the years Jackson Walker LLP team members such as Carla Cox and Brad Knippa have served as dedicated board presidents, treasurers, meal providers, advisors – and best of all, great friends.
