Inspirational







I just saw this story on ESPN a few minutes ago.   I'm really thankful I caught it and am so happy to pass it on.
Tissues required.


Always.
Love.

Donna

  3. Thank you, Donna, for sharing this. Such a bittersweet story, but what a legacy to leave his son. My husband's cousin died of Duchenne muscular dystrophy in 1986. MD is a terrible disease.

    Gosh, thank you for sharing. What a beautiful story and so many lessons to take from it. Plus, I love Pearl Jam's song Just Breathe. I suggest listening to that song with headphones on and closing your eyes and listen. It's moving.
    The Holy Spirit helped you today in choosing what to share, dear Donna. : )

  7. This is so very moving. Music is powerful and can provide such healing and comfort too. A dear friend's Mother in Law is afflicted with this disease. Thank you for sharing, I would have never seen it otherwise.

  9. Thank you for sharing Donna. I admit to being teary eyed watching this clip. My mother died of ALS 17 years ago. My youngest was only a year and a half - my mother's only grand daughter. I am sad that my Lane has not had her grandmother in her life but I make sure that she knows all about her legacy. My whole family has been active in finding a cure for this devastating disease. I have sat on our local board of directors for the ALS Society and was so pleased that we were able to open a care home for those with ALS. It operates out of a donated home and has been welcomed by the neighbourhood. It is a welcome reprieve for ALS sufferers and their families.
