A Sweet Little Story

Just a random sweet story I have been wanting to share, but haven't quite remembered every time I sat down to work on the computer. That, and I'm procrastinating doing my taxes (don't get mad Neil). :-)

One of Neil's good friends from high school, groomsman in our wedding and lifelong friend Josh Sims and his family have been a huge supporter for Will. Even though they live in San Antonio, his wife Sheila checks in on us and often sends notes of encouragement and just genuine love.

Recently they were in town and their sweet daughter Abby walked up to me with a baggie filled with coins. She said this is for Will. Her mom explained that every time she made her bed, she was given a few coins for it and wanted to donate it to help Will. It was all I could do to not cry and take her home with me.

Sweet story and a sweet family. Thank you guys so much!
