Blood Transfusion #132

IV in...check! Ready to feel better...check! It's going to be a long day, but that's ok...check!

I turned around and this is what I saw...melts my heart, that's for sure.

Mia has been a Hopekid since Kindergarten and it's time for the annual 5K walk - to walk in the name of HOPE!! Our family has been so blessed by Hopekids over the years...they provide fun activities for the WHOLE family, because a life threatening illness doesn't just affect the child who has the illness, it affects the entire family.

If you would like to donate to Team Mia's Marrow...CLICK HERE !! Even a dollar helps...and many families will be blessed because of you. The best medicine, is HOPE.

When you Donate Blood / Others May Live

It's true. When you take the time out of your day to simply stick a needle in your arm, drain some of the blood from your body and give it to someone else, they get to keep on living. Like Mia. She's is ONLY alive, and I mean only here because someone like you donated their blood. You shared your life, so that Mia could go to the beach on another annual family vacation. Thank you.

"It's better to be absolutely ridiculous then absolutely boring." Marilyn Monroe - and Mia's instagram post. 

Mia truly believes that the ocean is healing...there's something about the water.

"Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life." John 4:13-14

Water is refreshing...the smell, the sound, and the feeling.

Ice cream is good too, you can never go wrong with ice cream!!

Sisters and ice cream go hand in hand...especially at sunset by the ocean.

I heart blood donors...and everyone who steps up to save a life. 

Thank you God for another annual family vacation at the beach...we are blessed because of you.
