Yard Sale in our honor
Yesterday a huge yard sale was held in our honor in order to help pay for our medical bills. It was unreal the amount of support that was given from people we had never even met. Families donating things from their homes, people who don't even know us helping out all day on a Saturday. Strangers would drive up see the signs the kids made that said, "Make a difference, Make an offer" and hand us a $20 and then drive away with nothing in hand. It brought tears to my eyes. I wasn't able to stay for very long, but from what I hear it was a tremendous success. It went until 5:00 that evening. Words cannot express the gratitude I feel for the people in my life that were sent to me as a blessing. I will never be able to repay all these people. I just want them to know how much I love and appreciate them. (You know who you are). And thank you to all those people who came and bought a treasure. And by the way.... we will be having more yard sales. :)
I'm grateful for the smallest tender mercies. Thanks to my new friends this weekend!
