Rebounding from the Flood

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving, with plenty of family, food, and most of all a season to remember how much we have to be thankful for. I have been on a "eucharisteo" journey, a journey of being deliberate about having eyes to see how blessed we are, a journey giving thanks for 1000 gifts. Please know how much you are a part of that journey.

We are taking this opportunity to respond to so many of you who have been so kind to remember and care for us since the Flood of 2013. It still amazes us to remember the morning of September 12 and how, even though we had heard the strong rain all night, we had no idea what lay ahead of us. Now that Highways 7, 34, and 36 are reopened, we are seeing more and more of our friends who are coming back to Estes Park and Rocky Mountain Memories. The resounding question has been "How can we help?". So we've put together a letter that attempts to answer that question. From our heart to yours. With thanks.
