A worthy cause!

I was asked to share about this and I think it's a very worthy cause. Thanks for listening!

At a time when life is supposed to be carefree, fun and full of joy, some kids across the country are stricken by cancer. Nationally, more than 10,000 children under the age of 15 are diagnosed with the disease each year and nearly 1,600 of them do not reach adulthood.

In our community, Grand Canyon University and the Children's Cancer Network are teaming up to help families touched by cancer through the annual Run to Fight Children's Cancer.

Thankful...

Day 9: I'm glad that all of my friends & family are safe from hurricane Sandy. There are a few that are still inconvenienced... without power, or living in a hotel because a tree destroyed their home, etc... but they are all SAFE. They are all still alive. That hedge of protection is still in place & I'm very, very grateful for that.

Day 8: I am thankful for fall weather, even if it is even for only a few days. When its still 95 degrees every day, even in November, I get pretty homesick. So, I am very grateful for the temps in the 60's & maybe even in the 50's tomorrow. Those are wonderful!

Day 4: I'm grateful for Paul. Its a blessing to have a man who loves you. Who comes home every night instead of hanging out with the boys. He works hard to help provide, and he is faithfully there for each one of our children. He puts his arm around me every week when he takes our family to church, AND he cooks! Every night when I turn over and feel his big, strong hand reach through the darkness to hold mine, even when he's sleeping, I feel blessed that he's mine. He often has trouble understanding my heart, but it its as simple as that. I'm grateful for you and all of the kind, loving things you do.

Day 3: My children. I have the best kids! They each are so full of personality and are so spirited! You have to meet them to know what I mean, but seriously, they are SO MUCH FUN. All of that personality and will power made it very difficult to raise a few of them as well, but it was well worth it. The older they (read: I) get, the faster I realize that they will soon be all gone. :( Two of th
em already are, and they are so far away that I never get to see them. It breaks my heart every day and make me feel like only half of my family is here. I wish they were close enough to have over for dinner, go to church with, watch movies with, hug touch, shop, smile at, hear their voices in person, touch their heads, etc etc etc. A mother never stops feeling like her babies are her babies...even when they think they are grown. My heart still says they are squishy little toddlers with fat thighs that I want to tickle and hear my little boy tell me I'm the prettiest mommy in the world, and have my Corki standing there in her princess costume watching Barney. At least today I still have my Maddie B and Emma Boo here that I can love on and look at their pretty faces. I am SO grateful for all four of these beautiful souls. They are who God chose to make me a mama and my cup runneth over.

Okay Carters, you got me! *sniff*



Maddie & I were lounging around watching TV on a lazy Saturday morning,
when this Carters commercial came on.

By the end, we were both tearing up,
and at the same time we both yelled,
"AWWWWWW!"

Just about that time,
she lunged at me from across the couch
and bear-hugged me. <3 p="p">

I love my girls.
*sniff*

Day 2: I am thankful that I got to sleep in this morning knowing that I am beginning to feel better & can return to work on Monday to provide for my family. God is good.

Day 1: I am thankful for the flowers Paul brought me tonight to say he was "sorry". He's never done that before & may sound small to the world but is actually HUGE & I my heart is blessed. I love him.
