Benefit Dinner Edit...

We received another $115 this morning ($100 from an amazing family who wasn't able to make it last night), so our Benefit Dinner grand total is


Someone asked me this morning how much I was hoping to make from the dinner.  Quite honestly, I would have been thrilled with $500.  So...to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory.

Thank you, family and friends, for blessing us so very very much.

Too tired to post...

...but I'm doing it anyway.

Oh, why, you ask?

Umm....it could be that my kids are keeping me awake.  But that's not true because they're all asleep.  No, I'm wading through my exhaustive oblivion to let you know how amazing the Benefit Dinner went.  Stuart and I have not stopped mumbling to ourselves (remember....we're exhausted) about how encouraged we were by the friends and family who made a point to stop by and encourage our efforts.  But along with verbal and emotional encouragement, we were also extremely blessed with financial support.

$1097 of financial support.

Can you say "!!!!!!!"?

Who wants to join me as I jump on my bed in excitement?  We'll just have to postpone it until I rest up.  ;)

Also, we received another $300 in donations from friends and family who couldn't make it to the dinner, for a grand total of $1397!

At times like these I wish there were bigger, better words for saying THANK YOU because, well, I'd use them right now.
