Although Thanksgiving has passed, Karen Head’s ‘thanks giving’ started a long time before and will go on for a very long time after.She said a big ‘thank you’ goes out to all the people in Grand Forks who helped raise funds so that she was able to purchase a medical scooter. However you donated, be it money, time or other, and wherever you donated from, your generosity will never be forgotten, she said.“Some already know this, but for those who don’t, this scooter has changed my life and opened up a whole new world for me (and my dogs),” said Head.For the first time since moving here this summer, with friends, Head was able to take her dogs to the river for a swim so they could cool off.“Words are not enough to truly describe how I feel and how grateful I am,” she said. “One day I know the chance will come for me to “pay it forward” and bring hope and happiness to someone else’s life,” she said.“So when you see us out and about, look for the happiness in our hearts and the joy on our faces (dogs included) as you are the ones who made it possible,” Head added. “Thank you again.”
