Thanks to 'Berg's CARE House Girls


Shayla and I enjoyed treating the CARE House Girls to pizza last night. Shayne and I wanted to do something to thank them for all of their work in hosting the Lemonade Stand. They were so sweet. They entertained Shayla for hours, talking, reading books to her, teaching her math tricks and even doing a dramatic reading based upon a children's book. There will be some very lucky students in the future to have these amazing and compassionate young women as their teachers! I was blessed to sit back and catch up with my friend, Lori, as she's their House Mom or Advisor or something and worked to coordinate their efforts. Please keep dear Lori in your prayers as she continues to battle very serious health issues.

We are quite blessed that everyone in our family is in fabulous health. Shayne is spending the weekend with his father. While Shayne was in Toledo this week, he sat at a coffee shop and watched a gentleman roll down the street and into the coffee shop in his electric wheelchair, paralyzed from the neck down. He said witnessing that helped put everything into perspective. God is good!

My friend, Becky, gave Christi a scrapbook soon after she was diagnosed. This is the very first page Christi put in her scrapbook. She told me what to write and over the next few pages, which I will share in order, she tells her story of being diagnosed. (Christi was five years and four months old then - Sept. 2002)

Have you ever seen this site?

They take your child's drawings and can make sterling silver pins with them. I thought it might be something you would like to take a look at.

PLEASE tell us what has happened! I am so worried, and yet so relieved to hear you all are in good health. How long will it be before you can share this with us? I would like to help you if there is anything I can do.
