Thankful Tuesday/Eunice Shriver

Today on Thankful Tuesday I'm very thankful for this Amazing Woman's life and her dedication to children and people of all ages with disabilities. She gave her life and every waking moment to the cause of Special Olympics and had a special love we can't even imagine for these gifted children. As a grandmother of a child with disabilities, I wish there were a Eunice Shriver in every town in this country and abroad. I hope her legacy lives forever. God bless you classy lady! RIP

"She never ran for office.........and she changed the world." ......Bobby Shriver
I wish one of my children could say that about me.


  1. I didn't realize that the Special Olympics started in her back yard! Amazing.
    Just for the record, you've changed MY world - for the better!

  2. She never ran for office...she changed my world:)...there I said it.
    Love you mom:)

  3. As the wonderful and dedicated mother and grandmother (not to mention sister, auntie and oh yeah, wife...) you are, I can't help but agree that you have most certainly enhanced their lives more than you will ever know!

  4. :-) I really wasn't fishing for all these comments.. Just thinking outloud or on screen~ But it's very sweet to read.
