The other day in the car Halley asked me if I had heard of St. Baldrick's (I hadn't), and proceeded to tell me about a boy in her class that is shaving his head for kids with cancer, and how nice he was to want to do that. Then the conversation turned to Jessie and her Joy Jars, which turned to talking about heaven, and what their sister might be doing right then.
Then, how things always seem to work, which I just love, later on that day Jeannett asked me if I would make a printable to help raise money for St. Baldrick's
OF COURSE. God uses the boy in my daughter's class to stir my heart for something that is right around the corner
I had an idea in the back of my mind, and that little request was just the little nudge that pushed me into my computer chair, headphones on, Kings Kaleidoscope blasting, rainbow designing.
Vanessa is the brave mama of Brock who has fought cancer.
Her story and his strength ruined me.
Her heart to help fund childhood cancer research inspires me.
All with the common goal of equipping St. Baldrick's in their research efforts to treat and end childhood cancer.
This video... please, pretty please, watch it to see what St. Baldrick's is up against.
What they hope to do.
I can think of way too many kids who have faced cancer, battled and won, or battled and been called home.
I am so thankful for this opportunity to help in some small way.
Salty Bison, that I scooped up at Queen Bee Market last year (be jealous), greets me as I make toast each morning. It might be my most favorite thing in our entire kitchen. The quote is so true. Sometimes it takes a little rain to make a rainbow. Sometimes it takes storm upon storm upon relentless storm.
