Thankful for you
Good Morning. There is so much I want to say, do and share. As I lie awake in the middle of the night, I think of how 2011 has started and think of how grateful we are because of you. Our spirits continue to be lifted in many ways. Thank you for touching our lives, making a difference, sharing Mason's story, the power of friendship, and prayer. We are thankful for such wonderful organizations and the donations in Mason's honor to St. Jude, Make a Wish and Ronald McDonald House. Who would have imagined Mason and Maverick's idea of a Make a Wish tree would end up in the coming together of friends, family and Eddie's co-workers to raise $3,842. They have raised enough to grant another child's wish. And every time I mention it; the boys beam with pride and accomplishment. Thank you for your support. And your continued support; a friend from Mason's school is collecting money at her birthday party for Make a Wish.
There are angels among us and our family feels the love of God surrounding us. We have invitations from so many local churches and prayer chains from CA to NY. Our eyes are wide open; after all we have experienced we look for the good in everything. And hope that Mason's story continues to touch many lives. Mason is not just an average kid, he has hopes, dreams, and ambition. He is extraordinary, a gift from God. So much he has accomplished, but so much more to accomplish.
For the last 9 years, I have asked Mason what he wants to do when he grows up; no matter the answer, knowing we will support him. Here are some of answers, a football player, a dentist, a crossing guard, a police officer, a solider, a bank owner, a fire fighter, a secret agent, anything with a computer, a scientist, each year a different answer. This spring at St. Jude, he whispered in my ear, " Can I ask Santa for a college degree?" He never brought it up again. Here's to being a kid and dreaming of being whatever you want to be! Keeping dreaming and Reach for the Stars! And May Hope, Love and Faith always be by with you. We hope Childhood Cancer awareness continues to spread through Mason's journey, because we are not alone. Thank you continuing to share our story. Mason says, "I am SO HUNGRY!!"
