I forgot. Pictures of Parker’s yard sale would have been a great reminder of a beautiful day.
A day filled with amazing neighbors, friends and family.
If I would have remembered to take pictures, I could show you my beautiful blue eyed girl as she manned the bake sale table laden with homemade breads and treats made by our neighbors.
If I would have remembered to take pictures, I could show you how from an hour before the sale was supposed to start we had more customers than we could count.
If I would have remembered to take pictures, I could show you the absolutely gorgeous items donated to the goal of providing Parker a long term generator, along with the everyday ‘must have’ items on so many yard sale attendees lists, such as beautiful shoes, clothes, brand new books, scriptures, cookware, toys, furniture, and so much more.
If I would have remembered to take pictures I could show you the beautiful picture of Christ donated to Parker by a young man named Cooper and his sweet family. It was purchased by another sweet family here in my neighborhood.
He’s been so sick. He’s all ribs, elbows and bony spine. It will take a while to get the weight back on him. We just had a visit with Parker’s new GI. He totally supports us on the blenderized diet and says we can go back to it anytime. I want to wait until Parker’s stomach is back to normal first. That could take weeks.
The things I could show you if I had only remembered to take pictures would include so much love shared by so many people as we work to attain our goal. I am grateful for the trust put into Reed and I by others, and for all of those who believe in Parker and understand that all life, even a life with an extra chromosome that requires being connected to an oxygen source at all times by 50 feet of tubing has value….immense value.
Because of all of you we are one yard sale closer to our goal.
PS: When we get started I promise to take pictures…..LOTS of pictures to share with you the progress of providing Parker with no small miracle……the ability to run all of his medical equipment even during a prolonged power outage.
