Gratitude is often defined as being thankful. My family’s emotions have recently been on a full swing of highs and lows. Today, however, is all about thanks. What began as a seed idea has blossomed into a mission and a quest for awareness, treatment, and a cure for our beautiful Kelsey and all others affected.
Friday, we will gather to dance, laugh, hear a bit more about Kelsey’s disease from Kelsey’s favorite doctor, and count all of our blessings. One main blessing is the ability to type from behind my computer screen the words I often find difficult to say aloud. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for reading, sharing, and joining me on this ride to help find a better future for my baby girl.
Today is about thanks. Whether you shared Kelsey’s video (and if you think of it and have not, please do), said a kind word, purchased tickets for Friday, or donated any of the items for auction on Friday, Thank You! We have collected well over $10,000 worth of items to auction through both a raffle and a silent auction display. We have Flyers tickets, Sixers tickets, a Party Host package, limited edition Pandora basket & gift card, portrait & photo sessions, power washing, swim lessons, spirits, restaurant gift cards a-plenty, beauty products, and so much more. I have been overwhelmed this week with attempting to fit ALL of the generosity into a brochure you could actually read. There are just so many wonderful friends and family members around. My family and I are very grateful.
I am so excited to share all of the many bounties and treasures we have collected with you that I thought I would end with a photo sampling of the items we will have on Friday night. THANK YOU!
