Today we participated in our towns community day. There is something special about belonging to a small community where one town turns into the next on the very same street.
Living in a small town has both good and bad. If you are a private person you might as well live somewhere else. In small towns everyone know mostly everyone and if they don't someone else does. On a positive note a small offers love and compassion from people you don't even know personally but they are still part of you.
Today so many neighbors stopped to hear Morgan tell her sweet story of what Morgan's Magical Ears is. These new friends were so empathetic! They liked hearing how Morgan's deafness turned into these buckets of love she shares with CHOP kids and other sick children. We would love nothing more than to see Morgan not have to deal with batteries that run out at the worst time or having to spend time getting her implants waterproofed so she can go swimming or learning to be her on advocate already in elementary school. But these things have all turned Morgan into the most beautiful, caring, tender hearted 8 year old you can imagine. Morgan takes nothing for granted. She loves making people smile and will always be there with a sincere hug when she sees one needed. The hearing sense she was born without was given back to her twofold in having a sense that most don't have. She can sense when her love is needed and she has no problem giving it. She has had to be around adults from 6 weeks old and you can tell if you have had the chance to talk with her she is very comfortable around adults. She is an 8 year old but a very mature young lady.
Thank you to our old friends that bought funny cakes today. To our new friends, we welcome you to our world of MAKING SMILES HAPPEN!
Our next CHOP drop off will be Santa's sleigh helping Morgan deliver lots and lots of Woofi Christmas Stockings!
