The Princess and The Prosthetic

Love Ambassador

February 17, 2020 in Holidays, Lifestyle - No Comments

Callie Bear and I spent Valentine’s Day handing out close to 100 carnations at our local nursing home.

Everyone wanted a hug from Callie or to touch her hair.
We heard so many “God bless yous” that I lost count.
We had tears and shaky voices telling us thank you…..because they hadn’t had a visitor in a while.

She brought a ray of sunshine to that place and I could not be more proud of her.

We met a new friend that had a prosthetic leg like Callie and they got to compare metal.
We saw a lady who recognized us from our local grocery store where she used to be a cashier.
We met Mr. Jack who was recovering from a broken hip and said he would be our Valentine any day of the week.
We met another friend who didn’t speak English–but we were definitely able to connect with a smile, a gesture, and a pat on the hand. Flowers translate across all languages.

Nursing Home

This was the second year in a row that we had been chosen by Tiny Tags to be a Love Ambassador.  Hearts filled to the brim, we went home filled with joy and memories.

Jaime

Hi Y'all! I’m Jaime, a proud working mama, author, girl boss and wifey to an ultra-adorable husband. I am a huge book nerd, I drink coffee like my life depends on it, and run on dry shampoo and Amazon Prime. Leopard print is my favorite color. I am a story teller at heart and this blog is a virtual scrapbook of our crazy beautiful life. I'm a Type One Diabetic and our little warrior princess Callie is a lower limb amputee. By sharing how we’ve chosen to flourish in the garden we’ve been planted in, we hope you can take some small nuggets of hope, inspiration, and laughter. We are so grateful that you’ve found us—welcome to the fam. We embrace our perfectly imperfect lives and don’t let the doctor’s appointments, spreadsheets, speaking engagements, 10th birthday parties to plan, housework or date nights overwhelm us. Those things are just the beautiful reminders of all the blessings in our lives. Read More
