Hero of the Month
As a family, we have been showered with fun little packages. Some are just little notes of encouragement here and there. Some have been financial help and wonderful meals. All are appreciated. One thing I have discovered though is I am not as quick to get my thank you notes out. Please know my heart, I think of everyone who helps with kindness and love. I pray for each of you. And some day you will get a card of thanks! You are our families heroes!
I want to thank so many of you for coming to the Chickfila Benefit. What a great turnout! Brooke loved seeing so many of you! She actually did very well for the first part. She wore out towards the end, and seeing the cow sent her over the edge. Thank goodness Dad arrived to save her and take her home. Brooke loves her daddy and he jumps in to be her hero all the time!
We really loved seeing you all. What you all did will help in so many ways. I have to practice deep breathing as I open each medical bill that comes in. I know that it will be ok, and trust that God is showing our family that money is not a cure for anything. I was quickly brought to this realization just the other day. Some amazing people I know went on a mission trip to Haiti. One of my friends was sharing stories with me about hospital care in Haiti. I cringed thinking about any child not having the proper care they needed. To not even have food provided, everything needing to be brought in by the family. I thought of all the things we take for granted and how fortunate our children are. To all those who are missionaries, I pray blessings on you! You all deserve the Hero of the Month Award!
Another little lady that deserves this award is Brooke's new little friend, Danica. She also has Chiari. She went for her second surgery yesterday. This brave little hero is now trying to fight a very tough battle. Brooke sat at the kitchen table praying for her yesterday. She prayed a prayer only a person who understands what Chiari is all about could pray. I listened as she asked God to protect her friend. These 2 little ladies can be heroes to one another!
We are surrounded by heroes everyday. Most of the time, we never tell them thank you or even acknowledge their efforts. But I encourage you to find just one hero tomorrow and thank them. What would we do without the Heroes of the Month!
