What started out as a site to update on our daughter's cancer has thankfully grown into a site to update on our beautiful family of four. Enjoy our journey...

kindness of others

I just wanted to thank all of you for your kindness. I am talking about the kindness of emails, letters, cards, phone calls, notes left on our door, visits, surprise ice cream drop offs, etc!

We received two gifts this week that especially touched my heart. Chad's aunt Janice stopped by Thursday night and gave us two very thoughtful gifts. The first is an inspirational childnren's bracelet for Charli. It is so pretty - silver and pink, with special charms. This will be her "special" bracelet, and I intend to have her wear it when we go down for chemo. The second gift is equally as special! It is an "awareness" bracelet. The card that came with it says: "Having a child with Neuroblastoma makes us keenly aware of how fragile and precious their lives are. Many families look for a special peice of keepsake jewlery that will honor them." It is beautiful

The second gift came from 'Charli'! We received a card that said:
TO: Mommy & Daddy
(picture of Charli on the inside cover!)

Hey, Mommy & Daddy,
Grandpa & Grandma Preister want a play date with me, this Saturday, June 9th.
Grandpa gave me this money to give to you so you can have dinner & see a movie.
I really want to play with Grandpa & Grandma so I hope you will take them up on the offer & take sometime to go out.
This is my belated Mother's Day and early Father's Day gift to you.
Love, Charli Ann

Oh...and Charli got an amazingly cute pink John Deere dress, shorts, and hat from a friend in Omaha - pictures of that were in her video!

These are just a few examples of how kind and great people have been to us. THEN - there are people like Linda who bring us ice cream afer supper!!

Thank you to all of you who know how to sweeten our day and brighten our lives!

Have a great weekend! Talk to you soon!
