Nothing Short of a Miracle...

No words can truly express the feelings that are shared by Michael and I. We really had no idea so many people cared! When I think of miracles, I think of the scriptures, I think of Christ, and the days of old. And I've wondered what it would be like to see...last night...was nothing short of a miracle. Our best friend and neighbor, Kim Blackett and her mother Peggy and sister Jennifer, began planning last night's event just days after Michael's accident...we had no idea of the magnitude! Literally hundreds of people arrived showing their love and support! Their were so many incredibly generous people who donated items for the auction as well as those that came and bought. We were in total awe! There were friends and family who spent hours and hours setting up...typing...counting...decorating...aranging and planning...even some total strangers to Mike and I came to support! Seriously, there are countless stories of amazing people and the things that were done for us! I think that is the most mind boggling part about this whole thing...everything that has been done...has been for our little family! It is really hard to wrap my mind around! If only we knew of a way to say thank you...last night after came home and began to settle from the excitement I was overcome...the realization of everything hit so hard...the realization that we are going to be just fine...everything is going to be ok!

Thank you for nothing short of a miracle...

Love,

Michael, Michelle, Brody and Jocelyn

PS

Ok...so one more awesome thing...channel 4 news came! They interviewed Mike and I and some family and friends. Gee, I think Mike was born for the camera he looked so good...we were sure nervous...but it was a pretty cool experience (you may have to mute the music on my blog to hear the clip).. here it is!

WOW! You guys are so incredible! I mean, seriously! Every time I read your blog and see your faith and wonderful attitudes, you remind me of the kind of person I want to be someday! I cry everytime and I'm just so grateful to have even rubbed shoulders with you a little bit. I'm glad the auction went well. I wish I could have been there! Good luck with rehab! I'm sure Mike will break all sorts of records for recovery time!
