A Full (and Incredibly Happy) Heart
I've got to be honest--some days this cup seems like it has a leak. Paige has a bad day--drip. Watching my baby's hair get thinner and thinner--drip, drip. 12-hour day at the hospital with everyone's nerves getting frazzled--drip, drip, drip. Fortunately, there is always something--or someone--to help fill it up again. This weekend, it was a 5K fun run.
Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love... 1 Timothy 4:12
Though the girls set an original goal of 250 - 300 participants, race day estimates put that number closer to 600! The turnout was incredible--from the runners and walkers themselves to the volunteers and cheer sections along the route, The Paige Project 5K was an excellent demonstration of community spirit and support. Thankfully, Paige was healthy enough to be in attendance that morning and was able to see for herself many of the 'soldiers' standing with her in this battle. It was a wonderful boost for her to see them, but I believe it was just as fulfilling for them to see her there!
We are beyond grateful and humbled at the amount of love, prayers, and support our family has received as we set out on this journey. In less than two months' time, acquaintances have become friends--who have become part of our family. They lift us up--and refill that cup!
Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice. Philippians 4:4
