Thank You!

I am so grateful for all your kind wishes and concern for Reese. She is not out of the woods yet. She is in the best place she could be, getting all the help that she needs....the Mayo Clinic rocks! Reese is such a kindred soul. She is so easy to love and you want her around. She is a loyal friend. My kids adore her! Her quiet personality is a joy. Reese's smile is happiness that melts my heart...even the way she asks me for chocolate milk, with that smile, how can I say NO?
But tonight I want you to meet Reese's mom. She is a very good friend of mine that I met through Oprah. I love telling people that! But it is the truth. We met through Oprah.
A few years ago, Candi made the bold move to call and invite me to go to the Oprah show with her and two of her best friends. I didn't know her very well, we just met every month at the scrapbook store for class. I was beyond thrilled. She didn't know then that I had been a huge fan of Oprah's for years.
But now I am a huge fan of her.
Candi is such a determined friend. She emails encouragement, texts inspiration, starts businesses, plans parties, creates projects, goes on adventures, all with her 3 kids. She is for her kids....always. I actually met Candi when she was pregnant with Reese and there are not many times when I have seen her alone. She is always with one or all of her girls. She is a mom who loves, smiles, laughs, worries, fights, cheers...all for her kids.
When she called me a few weeks ago about Reese sleeping, and sleeping, and sleeping. She was thoughtful. She had been passed by the doctor's office with another antibiotic. She didn't stop there. She was rescheduled for the next day and she didn't take that for an answer. She took her beautiful sleeping beauty to the hospital.
Now as Reese is undergoing numerous tests over and over again. I don't know how Candi is a witness to all of it. Well, actually I do. She is strong, determined, and commited to her little ones by love. With her husband by her side and God watching over, I know that Candi and Ryan will do everything they can for their daughter because of this love.
We have collected many, many loving thoughts for Reese and her family. Thank you!
I know that with faith, anything is possible. Keep Reese in your prayers today!
