One of the blessings this journey has brought us is the gift of seeing how much pure goodness is in so many people. Mandy's garage sale fundraiser was a great example of that. A group of great women gave up their Friday and Saturday to put this together. Kristin, Kilsys, Kelsys, Patty, Emily (who even gave up her house to host it), Kelly, Sam, Charrita all put a ton of hours into this day. SO many more people donated items or came out to shop. It was a huge success and I can't thank them enough! In big and small ways, so many people helped this day be the fun and successful day it was. I have said numerous times, it is not WHAT people do, be it simple things like a "thinking of you" email or phone call or major donation of time or money, that blesses us, but THAT they do. It touches our hearts so much to know that so many people care about Mandy and our family and do so much to reach out to us to show their love and concern. That love and those prayers mean more than we could ever express.
Thank you to each and every person who has reached out to our family in big ways and small. It means so much and is such a blessing to be able to see so much good in the world. The headline on this blog says, "One little girl fighting NF and cancer....with an army of love behind her." What a beautiful gift to be reminded every single day that that "army" extends to so far, to so many people, family, friends and even strangers.
Thank you to all of you who made this weekend so touching, humbling and amazing.
Love to all~
