The Big Give

this was an incredible moment!
so many of you pitched in for the romey family
and made the big give something larger
than we could imagine!
in gave $795.00 to go towards an
account for main dish kitchen.
and $475.00 was given for travel expenses.
the family is going in october to georgia
to pick up callie's canine assistant.
ryan, tabby & the kids were completely surprised by your generousity. they really were unsure of what was happening.
they were so grateful and very touched by all who were involved.
the next day, tabby called... she kept saying, we didn't know how to respond...we were just SO surprised! more than anything...she thanked you for "getting it"...for understanding.
my heart was moved most by their children.
i believe that they knew what this gift meant.
it meant more time with their family -
it meant that a couple of burdens were
lightened for the time being.
literally - you could see it in their faces, hear it in their laughter...and feel it in their hugs.
and, even though callie isn't able to communicate through verbal words...just one look into her eyes...truly is a window into this child's soul. she said everything to me with one simple look into her eyes. it was amazing - and i was, and am humbled to get to be a part of this
big, big give.
