Wow...just...wow

I'm trying to find the words to write what I am feeling right now, but I don't think they'll come across as eloquentl as I would like. I don't know if I can accurately convey what I am feeling right now.

I posted the post below about the Buddy Walk as just an "every day" type of post; just something to share, this is what we're doing cheer us on kind of thing.

I never, ever expected to read in the comments that people would want to support us by sponsoring us. I had tears in my eyes reading comment after comment asking about pay pal. I am so touched that people out there who have never met my family are so willing to donate to a cause that is so near and dear to my heart.

So for those that have asked, yes I do have pay pal. It is mdbeau98 at yahoo dot com. And if you prefer to mail something instead I will email you my mailing address.

Whether you can sponsor us or not, I am humbled by everyone's generosity to support us whether it be by donations, or just cheering us on to reach our goal.

Thank you - those 2 words seem so small - but thank you.

Oh I have always wanted to do a buddy walk-but they dont have one here.:( It is great that you are doing it!Very Awesome.

Jessica said...

That is awesome!! We're on our Buddy Walk committee and have been going crazy planning it.

PEA said...

Now maybe you'll realize just how much people care and are willing to help Kayla and all the other children...you have become very special to many of us and you & Kayla are truly an inspiration. I'll send you my donation through pay pal as soon as I publish this comment:-) Hugs!!

Barb said...

My goodness, you shouldn't be surprised at all. We love you and we certainly love sweet little Kayla.

If my husband hadn't lost his job I'd send money in a heartbeat. Unfortunately every single penny we have right now is earmarked for staying afloat until he finds another job.

But I'm certainly cheering you on. I can't wait to hear the results this time. I'll bet you're going to be surprised.

Deb said...

You and Kayla both are an inspiration. Could ya drop me a line at jroppolo@centurytel.com with your mailing addy?

LeslieAnn said...

This is awesome. I hope you go above and beyond your goal this year! :)

Shelley said...
