30 Days Until I MEET TOBY!

By Lifeasarunningmom @RunningMom6
30 days until I MEET TOBY!Let the countdown officially begin!
Okay, I have been counting down for MONTHS but now that we are in the final stretch...join me. In 30 days darling daughter and I will be starting our summer vacation right with MEETING TOBY!!!
Poor dear hubby, he will be staying home keeping the fort safe and watching our pet family. What a trooper! We better bring him back some good goodies!
In case you don't know, I run for Toby -- a precious nine year old in Nebraska -- and have been running for him since July 27, 2014. In a matter of minutes, I fell in LOVE with him, his mom, and his AMAZING family.
Toby has Down syndrome so I have a special place in my heart for Down syndrome awareness so you will hear me chat about that here and there and you may see LOTS of posts and updates that refer back to this precious boy. Oh God is great and perfectly matched us together and watching him grow hasn't only blessed me but darling daughter. She does so much artwork in blue and yellow and tells me it is for Down syndrome. And her heart is growing for all kids with special needs. She even ran to me after school Thursday when I picked her up beaming with joy and guess why? You won't guess it. It is because the boy with autism in her class got a school award for GREAT BEHAVIOR! She was so proud of him and I am too -- and also for her for sharing in his joy enough to tell me about that. How cool is that?!

Daily Gratitude: I am so thankful to have Toby and his family in my life AND that I get to meet him in person!!!!

Daily Bible Verse: Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God. Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. ~ 1 John 4:7-10
