Do you ever have those moments when you know you can’t do a lot for someone, but you know you want to do something? I stumbled across the story of Kimble today as I was catching up on my google reader. Now I’m in trouble because I want to spend the whole day finding out more. Basically, Kimble was born with heart defects that require many surgeries. Add to that a cleft lip that will require even more surgery (because repeated open-heart surgeries aren’t enough for some people). Check out more of his story here.
My nephew was born with a tethered spine that required back surgery at 5 months old – that one was hard enough on his parents, I can’t imagine what this family is going through with multiple surgeries on the horizpn. But his mom Shaina seems to be staying on top of life – and I love that! (I about spit Pepsi out of my nose when I saw today’s post.
She is also a great cook – so she’s come up with a cookbook to help with the costs of medical bills. I skimmed a few pages, read the reviews, and ordered my copy. If you’re interested, click the button below to do the same.
I read this quote by Bob Hope once, and searched it out because it seems to fit so well here. “If you haven’t any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.” Is it really charity if I’m just super excited for my new cookbook though?
