Our country has been in such turmoil since the recent elections. Emotions are running high and strong. . Marching in the street to protest or to celebrate. Liberal or Conservative, Clinton or Trump.. The overarching thing I see is that people care. People are invested and they are hopeful. People are scared, they are worried for themselves and their communities.. I get it. In a different kind of way. I get it. I think thats kinda my life all the time now too.. I have moments of great hope. When I see success when I see change is coming and happening. I have moments of great fear. Worried for childhood cancer to take up residence in my home again.. Fear that all this effort will never make a difference. Heartbroken over the everyday loss of life. 100 – 140. That’s how many parents have kissed their child for the last time[…]
We just received a check from the PayPal account from a list of all kinds of people. It was actually kind of fun to read it together and talk about how we know them. We will be using this gift for lodging and food while JLK gets her treatments. It removes a huge burden for us. I also want to share how very difficult this portion of the journey is for Tony. He is struggling to be able to accept these extreme acts of generosity. My husband is an amazing provider both monetarily and emotionally…I think he struggles with not being able to do it all. So I appreciate this even more if it can lessen the burden on his already heavy shoulders. Thank you.
