Hi Erika, It was so nice to spend time chatting with you yesterday after the IEP meeting. You, Gary, and your family have been on my heart even more since our conversation. Today during speech, McGuire came in super excited to share something with the group on Youtube. He showed us the video montage you made of Gary. After we watched, I asked Mcguire if it would be ok if the girls asked any questions they had about his brother (since he was so excited to share and the girls curious about why he was in the hospital). It was a great time of sharing. The video you made is so beautiful. Afterward, I spent a quick moment on your blog (since I'm working I didn't want to linger too long!) and your entry about your marathon brought me to tears. I wanted to thank you for spending time yesteday sharing about Gary, his illness, and the journey your family is on. I look forward to spending more time reading your blog. I believe that your words and the process of sharing your journey will bless people beyond measure. Your family will be in my family's prayers.
Can you imagine how this made me feel? Thank you for blessing me back. Thank you for your words. These words if only for a moment put it all in prospective. A prospective of encouragement. This encourages me to keep doing the best that I can. Keep working, fighting, living, and loving. These words are a huge hug from God, thru you. Thank you for taking the time write this and brighten my life.
