Six years of spunky, smart, stubborn, serious, sassy, silly, and super sweet lovey girl.

If you helped make Josie’s room happen…

June 23rd, 2016

…YOU ARE INVITED to a Thank You Open House!!!

Not sure whether this includes you?  Read on!

Anyone who gave any amount of money, supplies, counsel, time, support services or the labor of your hands to help design, build, paint, tile and furnish Josie’s room is invited!  That includes those of you who prayed for us, offered moral support, brought us food, or welcomed the four Musser Monkeys into your home for an afternoon during this time!

Josie’s room would not have happened without all of you pitching in and helping, which means Josie wouldn’t be a integral member of our family now, thoroughly accepted, appreciated and enjoyed, profoundly nurtured and beloved, strongly bonding, healing, progressing, thriving, and overflowing with happiness, and we wouldn’t be celebrating her Six Months Home milestone day today!

Some of you gave and gave and gave despite personal inconvenience, sacrifice, and even hardship.  I am personally grateful to the Lord for you every single day, oftentimes to tears, as I watch our girl using her beautiful, comfortable, and functional space as we had envisioned, with confident independence.  Her space was lovingly designed to meet her needs for the rest of her life if necessary, even if her needs grow much greater.

We want to give you a tour and thank you in person!

We are planning a drop-in dessert social at our home for Sunday, September 25th between 2 and 6 pm.   Hopefully, setting this date will motivate us to finish up the final details by then, haha!

We look forward to seeing you here on that day!  If you subscribe to The Blessing of Verity via email, I’m not sure whether you can see our street address on the right sidebar of our blog, so you’ll want to visit us online here and obtain our address this way:  The Blessing of Verity

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at susanna@theblessingofverity.com.

 

See that you mark your calendars now, or else!!!
