As most of you know, Chris at Notes from the Trenches was so moved by your outpouring of love for Heather that she decided to round up some donations and give away prizes to the people who contributed to the love offering.
And as a result of Chris’ efforts, we have us some winners, ladies and gentlemen. Be sure to click over to see if you’re one of the lucky ones – and to thank all the people who gave of their talents so selflessly.
Which reminds me.
A couple of days ago I talked to Heather for the first time since she’s been at Mayo. She mentioned over and over again how very appreciative and humbled her family is because of everything y’all have done (almost EIGHTEEN THOUSAND DOLLARS, y’all – that’s Ephesians 3:20 in action).
Because you have been so unbelievably generous, Heather’s parents and Emma Grace will be able to be with them this week. Because you have been so unbelievably generous, her husband will be able to stay with her for the duration of her time at Mayo. Because you have been so unbelievably generous, they will be able to live without financial worry while they’re in Minnesota for the next four or five weeks – they can focus on what really matters, which is, of course, Heather’s health.
That’s huge, y’all.
So thank you to everybody again – to Jada for setting the For Heather thing in motion, to Beth for organizing the giveway for people who helped to get the word out about what we were trying to do, to Chris for putting together this latest raffle, and to every single one of you who have prayed or donated or encouraged. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: y’all really are the best internets ever, and I mean that from the bottom of my heart.
Finally, Heather’s surgery is this Thursday – the National Day of Prayer, no less. Kelli’s going to be organizing a prayer chain at her blog, and once I have more details – in the next day or so – I’ll pass along the info.
Hope y’all have a wonderful week!
