Heartfelt Thanks

Gratuitous Beautiful Children Picture

My mother did a lot of things right when we were growing up.  I will always appreciate her teaching me proper etiquette, which included the importance of writing a personal thank you note.  And I have to admit, there is just something special, and rewarding, about putting pen to paper and taking the time to write a thank you note for a gift or service received.

Since Lucy's diagnosis I have sent well over 400 thank you notes.  There was no way I could let the gifts, prayers, and various acts of kindness go unrecognized.  I know no one expected it, but I a thank you note felt like the only right thing to do.  With that being said, I am waving the white flag and begging for forgiveness for what I am about to do.

This is a picture of my inbox.  Between thank you notes and emails that I have yet to even open, let's just say I'm up to my eye balls! Yep, that's right.  3795 unopened emails!

I am listing below the people who have recently sent gifts, money and special prayers for Lucy.  We are so very thankful and our family wants you to know that 1. we have received your gift and 2. we are very appreciative.  We remain overwhelmed at the support we continue to receive from friends, family and cyber buddies alike.  Thank you from the depths of our souls!
