Officer Ron and Tina would like to share this with our Ropes Eagle Family.

Each day of most of the month of May, Ron has come home with an armful of notes, cards or food. This week was something of a cherry on top; with an overflow of blessings from students and teachers and parents.

On Monday the 21st I said “how can we ever thank them.”

There are not thank you card sufficient, there are not words adequate to communicate the blessing of all of you.

Every crayon stroke, each signature on a thoughtful card, every dash of salt or dash to the store – each time you spoke our name in love, in prayer or in Christian concern has been appreciated more than you know.

We are not accustomed to receiving such kindness; we are more comfortable giving than receiving – but to each there is a Season. God has chosen us to receive from each of you and we are forever grateful.

We think of each of you as special and precious.

Thank you, may your hearts and homes be blessed for all of your kindness.

Every day is a great day to be a Ropes Eagle.
Tina.
