What a great surprise the boys brought home to me Wednesday after school. So generous! I could hardly wait to hear their interview this morning on BIG 98.7 radio, with Jesse and Amanda, and Pike.
We actually listen to them every morning.
Mrs. Laudenbach, (Front row, yellow coat) is Colton's Language Arts teacher, and she also had Nolan when he was in 6th grade. She is the one who nominated our family for the The Christmas Wish and wrote about us to the station.
So early this morning, while Rick was shooting hockey photos and Nolan had hockey practice, Colton came to my room to listen to the story.
Hearing the boys voices ring out loud and clear was a moment I never thought I'd have with either of those boys. That alone was pure gift.
To hear them speak from their heart, so candidly, was a beautiful thing.
Shortly after the story aired, I received fb messages from both Amanda, and then Jesse. How neat is that? Amanda's mom is in the midst of fighting ovarian cancer, and knows all too well what a heavy burden this is for us all.
If you'd like to hear the story- a podcast is available on BIG 98.7's website HERE.
We're truly blessed and will be seeking out all the ways we can be good stewards of these generous gifts to us.
Thank you Mrs. Laudenbach! Thank you BIG 98.7!
We have a big weekend of hockey with both boys and I am attending as much as possible.
Go Junior Spuds!
Happy Birthday, Superman! As usual you will be our driver, our arena- finder, our care-taker and the last thing you will focus on is you. We love you!
