Thank you

A quick update this Saturday morning. Our garage sale was a success, we don't even have enough to open today. Thanks to YOU!! And yes, Santa even stopped by, can you believe it?
We continue to be touched by random acts of kindness. We sold one item, and later on the customer stopped by handed us 4 times the amount; she resold the item and gave us the profit. Our hearts stopped; it brought us back to all the random acts of kindness throughout Mason's journey. It was no doubt a magical moment; another Mason moment. It just shows how much everyone can make a difference.

We are ready to relax and watch Maverick play baseball later today. Thanks to everyone who stopped by, donated and helped the first annual KC Zoo garage sale in memory of Mason. We couldn't have done without you. We will present the "surprise"check on May 20 to the Zoo. We still are selling magnets for $4 too. Have a great weekend everyone.
I keep looking for signs of Mason. On Thursday, when we picked up Mason's portrait from Joann's the biggest, brightest rainbow graced the sky. It melted our hearts.
This morning I woke up queasy though, I still imagine that Mason will run through the door and yell, "I am back. "

So glad your sale was a big success. You know how proud Mason would be of all the money earned to help his tiger friends at the zoo. That rainbow on Thursday had to mean something special. :) Happy Mother's Day to clearly one of the most amazing moms I know. ♥

Andrea and Eddie
We are so glad we were able to get the magnets...and wrist bands, even though we missed the sale! But even better was that we got to meet you and Rex! I kept thinking all day about when Eddie found the penny outside. My Mom has always told me when you find a penny, these are pennies from Heaven...(and now I always pick them up when I see them.) Perhaps another sign that Mason was with you throughout your sale! We are looking forward to the 5K.
Debbie, Christine and ...and Winnie

Pennies From Heaven

I found a penny today
Just laying on the ground
But it's not just a penny
This little coin I've found

Found pennies come from heaven
That's what my Grandpa told me
He said Angels toss them down
Oh, how I loved that story

He said when an Angel misses you
They toss a penny down
Sometimes just to cheer you up
And take away your frown

So don't pass by that penny
When you're feeling blue
It may be a penny from heaven
That an angel has tossed to you.

This touched my heart. That was not the first penny..I can't tell you how many pennies I kept finding in the drive way that day. Hugs.

I would love to get a few magnets if they're still available. I've also seen bracelets - are they available? Who do I need to contact?
