Anyone who has children understands how EXASPERATING they can be.  Some days they just drive you absolutely CRAZY!  And then some days, they do the sweetest, most wonderful things.  Yesterday was one of those crazy days, and today was one of those precious sweet days.

My 8 year old daughter Abby, and her friends, Savannah and Riley gave me a benefit concert.  They have been planning this for weeks.  They wrote and practiced songs during recess at school.  Then they made fliers and handed them out around the neighborhood.  They wanted to do something to help earn money for my cancer treatments.  I thought the sentiment was sweet, and so heart warming!  The fact that they came up with the idea themselves, and spent so much time preparing and were so excited for it.......  Words can't describe how precious it was.  I received a bouquet of wildflowers, and the girls made a heart shaped envelope for donations. 

It was so touching and sweet, and totally adorable.  They sang some original songs, and then sang along with a couple of Hannah Montana songs and Alvin and the Chipmunks songs.  They danced and did gymnastics.  My face hurt from grinning.  We only had an audience of the girls' parents, grandparents, and siblings, as well as a couple of neighborhood kids, and it took place on the lawn of the elementary school, but it was the BEST concert I have ever been to!!!!!!!

I am humbled, and awed that these young girls cared so much to do something so special for me.  It just goes to show you, that no matter who you are, or how young or old you are, you can make a difference. 

So next time I go to the doctor, I am going to pay the $84.72 donated at my benefit concert towards my thousands of dollars of doctor bills, and this will be the biggest payment I have made because it means the most.  I don't think those girls and their families, and the people who donated will ever know the difference this made in our life.   But I am once again humbled and amazed at how blessed I am.

Savannah and my daughter Abby.  Savannah made the most adorable envelope that said "donations for Amber" on one side, and "We love Amber" on the other side.
