Michele and I started our delivery by putting beautiful Christmas arrangements in the back of my car. It was my first visit to Walter Reed Bethesda. It was actually an adventure for me just to find the place. Surprisingly it seemed like a very short drive and there we were entering the gates into a very different atmosphere than the Walter Reed of Washington D.C. They were ready for us with two carts, which we totally filled top and bottom with beautiful holiday arrangements. We entered the lobby and off we went to deliver them to our wounded warriors. The warriors, their families and the staff of the hospital were all very welcoming and seemed genuinely happy to receive our flowers. The flowers seemed to lift the spirits of everyone that we gave them to.
I just want everyone to know how much I feel our deliveries mean to the families, the warriors and the staff. It certainly made my holiday that much more special to assist Michele in delivering the smiles to everyone.
