3. I have an update on the Hawaii trip that was up for grabs! *Drum roll pleeeeease*
BUT, I did win $500.00 big ones!!!!! I had no idea that my company was going to reward us for every new customer we brought in, and I brought in 20 during the month of August! Yay! I am so thankful for this unexpected blessing! As for Hawaii, it just wasn’t my time…but I do believe $500.00 is enough for 2 plane tickets to NYC. ;o)
4. Have you ever watched something on TV that completely changed your life? This happened to me once before, and it happened again on Friday. Keith and I stumbled across a 20/20 program called “7 Going on 70”. We have never watched 20/20 before, but we were intrigued. The show was about three little girls that have Progeria. Progeria is a rare, rapid aging disorder that only 68 children worldwide have. The average lifespan for these children is 13 years.
Can you imagine? 13 years.
One would expect the kids with this disease to be very emotional and upset, but to our surprise they were fearless. These little girls (named Lindsay, Kaylee, and Haylee) were the bravest people I have ever seen.
They were positive, strong, and encouraging. These kids are everything I hope to be. The whole time I watched the episode, all I could think of was how beautiful they are. At one point, Kaylee was asked for advice for the children who share her disease. Do you know what she said?
“Be fabulous. Don’t let one thing ruin your life.”
When asked “What do you hope is going to happen?” her response was “I hope if I grow hair, that I grow curly hair.”
My heart nearly stopped when I heard this little girl speak those words. With everything that is going on in her life, she is hoping for curly hair. When faced with a huge obstacle, she stays fabulous. Did I mention that she’s only 6.5 years old???
I think we can all learn from these beautiful little girls. Life is too short to worry and be bothered over the little things. These little girls have changed my life, and are my heroes. God has let their light come into my world and I honestly don’t think I’ll ever be the same.
