My heart is so full.
I’m so happy that Rosaria Cronwell got to finish off her bucket list today. She checked the final item off after a beautiful sleigh ride.This is so special – because the 93-year old has dedicated her life to her family and her community.
When I first heard about Rosaria a few months ago, I knew that I had to help her get her wish. The folks at Senior Wishes were onboard – and it all FINALLY fell into place. Thanks to Mother Nature. Or Old Man Winter. Or both.
Rosaria has been playing Mrs. Claus for years – she’s as sweet as the wife of Santa must be. I received a card from her a few weeks back. A thank you for sharing her story. It was a long, handwritten note that most of us don’t bother with anymore. Although, we try. I try. What Rosaria may not know – considering she’s not on Facebook – is that she had an entire community rallying behind her. She had perfect, lovely, strangers sharing her story, hoping and praying for snow!
So, finally the day came. And the smile on her face – is priceless. I couldn’t be there to see it, but the wonderful folks at Senior Wishes sent me some pictures. As did Rosaria’s friend, Debi – who was my partner in crime during this whole process. (Read original story)
Now, this Great-Great Grandmother, Rosaria, who has 5 children, 16 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and one great-great grandchild has checked many things off of her bucket list. A trip to Vegas, a cruise, a huge 90th birthday bash. Check. Check. Check. Now, Sleigh ride – CHECK!!
Thank you to everyone at Senior Wishes and the folks at Kelkenberg Farms for making Rosaria’s dream come true!

This is a great reminder for all of us to never give up on our dreams. Never. It’s what we teach our children, but often forget ourselves.
