Family Day at Seven Hills

Today was Family Day at Seven Hills in Groton, MA. Seven Hills is a pediatric care center for children with complex medical needs. My oldest 4 have been volunteering there for about a month now and go on Saturdays to play games with the kids. Today was a special day with outside entertainment, moon walk, facepainting, live music, cake and raffles.

Andrew & Savannah. It got a bit chilly but Savannah was ready with her Cinderella fleece throw.



Rose and Nate



Me and Erin. How do you like her Barbie Superstar balloon?



Nathaniel and Brian, you can't tell in the picture but Brian was sporting some very cool Air Jordans and a #34 Pierce cap.



Blinky facepainting. I so wanted to get my face painted but I couldn't summon up the nerve.



If you are interested in volunteering or having your children volunteer you can contact the volunteer coordinator Arlene Howard at 978-448-3388 X 207 or by email at ahoward@sevenhills.org.

Hi!

I am a servant of God on www.prophecyfilm.com and wish to beg you, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, to please link to this wonderful site which has free glorious Prophecies & Revelations of Jesus and Mary from Saint Bridget in many languages, and wonderful and powerful prayers called: The Saint Bridget fifteen prayers to our suffering Lord Jesus Christ!

We also have free videos for download on various catholic topics, and maybe hoped that you could tell your visitors and your family and friends! They are a bit further down on the page and are quite interesting. They are extremly good for catholics to strengthen their faith, for protestants to come to the true faith, and for atheists to see the scientific evidence of the Bible that proves God's existance. You are free to copy all videos and books on our site www.prophecyfilm.com to your site if you like them. Our videos can also be embedded! This can draw lots of brothers and sisters to your site. We know by experience. We hope you also read the revelations and watch our videos personally.

Here is a page with different banners we have made if you use those on your page.

For the greater glory of God!

Peace and God bless!

Just wondering if you had permission from the families of these patients/clients to post photos of their kids on the Internet. There are some pretty strict privacy issues here, I think. Glad that your kids are volunteering, but it has only been a month. They are new to the scene, as it were. Just hope you got permission from the families or the facility.

Ah, that's very nice!

Well said anonymous. I am betting the families are not too happy about this. This is very interesting, from a philosophical perspective I mean. I bet liberals and conservatives feel very different about these pictures. I know how I feel about them, and you can probably guess what my position is.

Hi Anonymous and Brett (aka Paul Anthony Melanson)

22 Blessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake. 23 Be glad in that day and rejoice; for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For according to these things did their fathers to the prophets.

[snip]

27 But I say to you that hear: Love your enemies, do good to them that hate you. 28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them that calumniate you. 29 And to him that striketh thee on the one cheek, offer also the other.

Keep the comments coming.I'm just building up treasure in heaven.
Cheers,
Mary

Not sure who Paul Melanson is...but trust me, I am not he. I have viewed your blog from afar for some time now, and this post has finally given me cause to comment. That is all for now, but I am sure I will be back.
