Luke kicking the ball to knock over the pins.
Standing with help from a big ball.
...And says, I'll walk.Please hold my hand.I know that this will hurt, I know you understand.Please (mommy) don't cry.This is already hard.Let's go, don't worry.I'll walk.
We are looking forward to seeing many of you this Saturday night at the fundraiser. We will be using any money raised to help pay for more Stem Cell Therapy in November. This will get us closer to hearing those words Mike and I so long to hear, "I'll Walk." Thank you so much to everyone for your continued support. I don't think I have said it in awhile, but we would never want to walk this walk alone, you mean so much to us!! Believe!!

Fall is the season of bountiful blessings and giving thanks. Do me a favor, this week look around you at all of the blessings you have in your life, you might be surprised. Trust me, you never realize how some of the things we take for granted every day are the biggest blessings...until they are gone. I would give anything to hear Luke say, "I Love you mom," to see him walking out to parent pick-up at school, to see him outside riding his bike, to hear him talk about the wabbits, to bug him about doing his homework, you know it really is the little things that make life. Look around and realize how blessed you are, even in these trying times everyone seems to be in, then look up and Give Thanks. "Let us not become weary of doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up." Galatians 6:9 Believe!

For those of you that have signed up for the fundraiser...many have asked if you will receive tickets in the mail. The answer is no, your name will be on a list the night you arrive. For more details on the fundraiser you can go back a few posts or go to www.evsol.org. Thanks so much for your prayers. I know that we have been blessed in so many ways along this journey. I know that the hand of God has been in our lives at the times when we needed Him most. Someday I know we will look back at this period of our lives and realize that there were only one set of footprints in the sand. I know we could not have gotten thru this otherwise, had He not carried us thru as He continues to do day in and day out, with all of you on the side lines cheering us on. Believe!

Hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend! We did...camping up north, although we did come home a day early due to the rain. Luke had lots of fun doing things outdoors...launching rockets, riding quads and razr, throwing pine cones. Let me tell you, he remembers where the gas is on the quad and wants to go full throttle! Today Luke was able to ride a stationary bike my dad used when he was getting back from knee surgery. Luke did awesome as you can see in the video! Remember..lots of prayers for his surgery on Wednesday...pray the only regret we have is not doing it sooner, because he improves so much from it. Yesterday my nephew was over and I had the telethon on for a little while. We were talking about kids in wheelchairs and T said, "Luke can't go on TV because his eyes are closed and everyone will think he is sleeping." I had to laught then I told him only two more days and Luke's eyes will be open. T said, "Yes and when his eyes are open he can talk." Oh, to have the faith of a child. Pray that T is right...with God all things are possible. Believe!
