Giving Back

My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it. 
Mark Twain 

I have been following Kyra Root’s story on a Facebook for awhile. Kyra was an 8 year old little girl with big dreams who was fighting osteosarcoma (bone cancer). I celebrated along with many others when she went into remission and was devastated when the cancer came back. On Tuesday she lost her battle to cancer. Purple was her favorite color and she had so much more to give. Her family needs help and has set up a website where you can donate money towards her funeral. If you want to send flowers here are some addresses where they can be sent LIFEChurch, 1416 Larkin-Williams Road, Fenton, MO 63026 or Fieser Funeral Home, 401 Gravois Rd, Fenton, MO 63026.

I’m sorry my blogs have not been very regular. I am about as good of a blogger as I am a baker ( I burn everything!). I have been so busy staying at home with the boys, we are always on the move and somehow I have to squeeze in studying for my pathophysiology class I have been taking and I have been going to the gym everyday for one hour so I can be around adults and rehab my leg. These acts of kindness and this blog is not taking a backseat, I just don’t have time to right a meaningful blog every time I do an act of kindness. I cant believe I only have 42 more to do!
