Hi everyone! I have missed blogging so much, but with Summer Fun comes summer gymnastics training for gymnasts. Translation: YOU NEVER LEAVE THE GYM! I also teach dance to the gymnasts each day in the summer so not only do my kids not leave the gym, I don't leave the gym.
However, I am taking pictures of the summer hairstyles I've done and will blog about them soon. I have been blessed to have done wedding styles, flower girls and even birthday party princess styles lately so it has been fun!
This blog post is a bit more serious and I am BEGGING for your SUPPORT! The following is from a dear friend of mine, Ashley. The nephew she speaks of, Maddox, is the 4 year old son of her sister and another person I am blessed to call a friend, Autumn. Please pass the word and please help!! (below the fundraising post is a small history on Maddox's condition)
Many of you know about the journey of my 4 year old nephew Maddox. We have seen many specialists and haven't any answers. Maddox continues with daily leg pain and bouts of Paralysis. Still continues to fight the fight with his strong will in ...life. August 14th we see a new Dr. and pray for new hope. The reason for this post is to let you know we are hand making felt flower headbands or flowers on barrettes. Our goal is to help off set the cost of Maddox's appt. If anyone would like to make a donation of $7.00 (actual plus s&h) and receive one of these they come in white, orange, purple yellow, turquoise and pink. As each one is hand made petal by petal they are all uniquely different. Prayers and donations are gladly welcome. Please help by placing your orders by emailing me at email@example.com. Please include the number of felt flowers you need, color, headband or Barrette. Our plan is to have these completed prior to Maddox's appt. on August 14th. Thank you in advance for helping Maddox.
Please note that local families will not have s&h costs. However I have wonderful blog followers throughout the states and the world so the s&h was added. I will keep it as cheap as possible. It is more important for us to help this family than anything!!
From Maddox's Mom: My heart is overwhelmed with all the love and prayers, yet I am still humbled at His feet. I'm reminded that God is love and that His grace is enough. We are overjoyed in the fact that through all of this our amazing Lord gets praise and glory. Maddox was recently diagnosed with communicating hydrocephalus, we learned yesterday that his brain is creating 5 times the normal amount of spinal fluid, which is causing it to back up in multiple areas of his brain and has created an unsafe amount of pressure that Maddox cannot live with. Our prayer is that God heals Maddox so that brain surgery will not be necessary. Thanks for all the prayers.
