Courage

Took the whole family to an auction last night benefitting a foundation seeking a cure to childhood cancer. Until you see a father stand before a few hundred carefree people and describe his son’s losing battle against cancer and the surviving family members’ continued commitment to battle the disease in his honor, you don’t know the meaning of courage.

We brought a few things home from the auction. We left behind a little money that will absolutely help. We carry with us an undying respect for one family’s courage, and a sparkling recognition of our own luck.
