We are home safe today and are full of gratitude for our WOW experience.
As the Jack and Jill Late Stage Cancer motto says: “Memories are our greatest inheritance,” and we made some wonderful memories this week that will never be forgotten. It’s amazing how far kindness and service can go for both the givers and receivers.
I have one regret from the trip. I have a friend from elementary school who lives in San Diego and I had the thought to invite his family to come to church with us on Sunday. I ignored the thought that randomly came to me twice. When we were about 30 minutes out of San Diego this morning I got a message from this friend asking how long we would be in town. He wanted to meet up for coffee then remembered we don’t drink coffee. I told him how sorry I was that I had ignored the prompting to invite him to church. He said he would have come and that he remembered a good experience going to an LDS church with a friend in jr. high. This was a good lesson to me and a mistake I hope I won’t make again.
We would have gone back to visit him, but Evelyn had an appointment with the orthodontist to get her expander off. She is so excited that her mouth doesn’t make strange noises anymore.
Amos took Evie on a date to see David Archuleta tonight. They were given tickets as a birthday gift from our friend Rick Dalton. Thank you Rick!
Now that we are home I feel like we need to find some way to repay so many people for making this experience so wonderful including a mystery person who took care of our garbage cans while we were gone. I guess sometimes all we can do is pay it forward.
