It was a huge event including a 5K race, breakfast, silent auction, raffle, yard sale and bake sale. My friends and I were in charge of the yard sale/bake sale portion and things started to just fall together. People were offering anything they could to help out.
When all was said and done, people opened their hearts, and pocket books, all in support of these wonderful families. We weren't sure people would come to donate, and then all of a sudden we had an indoor football field full of stuff. We had three long tables filled with homemade baked goods that people that didn't even know any of the families involved were willing to donate- some all the way from Wyoming. People were generous- buying a $5 loaf of bread and giving $50. No matter the cost, all they wanted to do was help.
This is why we are on this Earth together. We are here to lift when the other person can't even hold their head up. Our Savior spent his time on Earth serving others, and if we are to be like him, then we need to do as he did. Serve.
My sweet kids wanted to visit Quincy last week, so Will decided to draw her a picture, and Annie picked some flowers and we went to the cemetery. It was so tender watching my children pay tribute to this little girl. We are all humbled.
