Garage Sale Success

Well, yesterday was our garage sale for Kaetlyn's insulin pump and we had many miracles. I sit here at the computer looking out at the grey and misty day. This was the weather forcast for yesterday. But from yesterday I have a sunburn on my nose and a reddish v on my chest... It was sunny and beautiful with nary a cloud the entire day!

So many people worked to make yesterday happen. Thank you to Lynn for having it at her house on East Hill and thank you to Monique and Mary Sue who made it all possible and thank you to Jill and Julie and Angela and Dean's parents and Brent's parents and to Annette and both the Karens and everyone! So many of my friends who know me and know Kaetlyn... and strangers who have never met either of us.... And all the people who came and bought things, shared stories about their own diabetes or loved ones who have it and people who paid $5 for a stuffy (we weren't asking that much...) because they wanted to contribute. And it was a huge success. We are well over half way now. We made more than $1,200! Suddenly her pump feels within our grasp! And my heart is full to over flowing with gratitude for the love and support shown to my daughter!
