Whew! What a day today was! Today was the Bowling for Brady benefit that was organized by my friends at Jackson Elementary School. A little background here...in my "former life" before having 4 kids in two years, I worked at Jackson as a special ed teacher. I have actually been on maternity leave for 2 years now, but the many friends I made at Jackson remain a big part of my life. This amazing group of people have stood by me through my triplet pregnancy, helping me handle my mom having cancer, helping once the triplets were born, supporting me when I lost my dad, having another baby, losing my grandma, and now dealing with Brady's cancer. I can't say enough about their dedication to my family and the great connection I feel towards the Jackson school community!
Walking into the benefit was such a humbling experience. There was a huge turnout...probably between 400-500 people throughout the whole day. It was such a fun environment and I felt like I could put a smile on my face and celebrate the wonderful generosity and caring spirit of my friends. How blessed am I to know that we have so many people behind us, whose hearts are overflowing with concern for us. THANK YOU to each and every one who helped plan this event! THANK YOU to everyone who donated something to the event! THANK YOU for everyone who came out and bowled for Brady! We just feel so blessed to be on the receiving end of such amazing generosity.
