Christlike Love and Faye's Video

...Succor the weak, lift up the hands which hang down, and strengthen the feeble knees. -D&C 81:5

Nick and Stacey have been blown away by the charity shown to them from all of you. It has been truly amazing! Soon after the blog was created, Nick and I had a conversation about how we had thought people were so terrible and have turned this world into such an evil place. And then this happened and it's like we didn't know a thing about the world we live in. Friends and family have been wonderful! Many have gone above and beyond the call of duty.

Even more amazing have been the strangers from all over that have reached out and donated, sent gifts, prayed for, and offered encouragement to Faye and her whole family. So far, these strangers have spanned 18 states and 3 countries. The world is full of people with true charity in their hearts. They are an example to us all and we are truly thankful for them.

I should also mention that there are wonderful people who give of their time and resources to organizations that help. Every once in a while someone from one of these organizations will stop by to pay their parking tokens for the day or give Stacey a $25 gift card to WalMart. Although these things may only be a drop in the bucket financially, they do so much to make them feel loved.

Thank you to EVERYONE who has done something to lighten their burden and "lift up the hands which hang down." I pray that the Lord will bless you and that the next 5 months will see as much support as the first!

What a sweet sweet video of Faye. She is absolutely beautiful. I am always amazed at how much goodness is in people if they one have a way to show it! I hope you guys will continue to get the love and support that you guys deserve and need in the months to come. And I hope that although our little donation couldn't be more I hope it can help a little with the financial burdens so you can spend more time together and cherish the little moments as a family! You both are amazing parents! Happy Mothers day to Stacey!

Oh Faye! I love your video. How could it not be cute when you are so so beautiful? I love to stop by your blog and see how you are doing. I can tell that you are a tough little chica and those blue eyes could melt any heart. I'd even give you my chocolate. That is a big deal. Keep your mom and dad smiling and even though you don't know me, I am one of those strangers pulling, praying, and cheering for you in your fight against cancer. You can win Faye, I know you can.
