Thankful thankful thankful!

We set out on our journey fighting Hudson's Stage 4 Neuroblastoma with only one thing in mind: heal our baby. Completely. 

What has come from Hudson's strength and courage has blown us away. Love, kindness, compassion, new friendships and old pouring out what I can only describe as the Lord's love at its finest.  

Even though we have endured much and have been loved by many, it still floors me to see these words in my inbox: I know someone who wants to bless your family. Call me. 

I never would have imagined a teacher from another building in my district, of whom I have never met, reaching out in this way. Speaking with her on the phone and hearing her excitement for what she can do for Hudson and for other families, I couldn't wait to write this post. 

Lindsay Meek, who lost her sister 17 years ago to cancer, holds a golf scramble every year, and the donations (of over $75,000 through the last 17 years!) goes directly back out into the community to heal little pieces of scarred hearts. 

This year we were one of those families chosen. 

We are beyond honored to receive money toward Hudson's college fund in memory of a woman who, when remembered by her sister today, sounded like such a beautiful and loving girl that could warm your heart with a good laugh no matter what you were going through despite all she was taking on herself. 

We keep finding this in our journey. From pain comes joy. We shouldn't be surprised because He tells us to seek joy, yet here it is in front of us yet again. Such kindness. Such grace. Such joy. 

Lindsay still needs teams for this golf outing! Scroll down for more info.
