Crazy Good


Good morning my friends!  I'm blogging live this morning.  My post title has nothing to do with my card.  We're busy right now planning a fundraiser for a local boy who in our community who was struck by lightning in June.  The fundraiser is tomorrow and everything is coming together really well.  Work is busy and the nights have been busy organizing. That said, life feels a bit crazy.  But it is a good crazy...really an amazing crazy.  Working on the fundraiser has shown me what I already know but can never be reminded of enough.  We live in an incredible world where there is so much generosity.   The outpouring of love from our community for Ethan and his family simply makes my heart sing.   So tomorrow, Ethan's Home Run Derby will be running from noon to five.  Beyond the derby, we will continue to support Ethan through prayer and helping him and his family as his healing continues.  If you're interested, you can learn more about Ethan's story click here.
