a fundraising miracle


I believe in miracles.
I also believe in the power of social media and blogging.

I am delighted by the fundraising miracle that has taken place.
Since Saturday morning we have raised over $20,000 for Lisa and her family.

Incredible.
Amazing.
Unbelievable.
Inspiring.

Is has left me speechless many times over the past few days.

You have helped to make a huge difference with this miracle.
I know this will not take away the pain or sorrow.

It will help to ease a few burdens and a little pressure.
Bless you my blog friends and my new friends.

My heart is so touched and tender from your kindness.
Thank you for making this miracle possible.

I am thankful to be able to play a small role in making this happen.

BUT, I know that the real reason this happened was because of how wonderful
Lisa and Aaron are, not me. 

THANK YOU
