|The Emerys - sorry for the bad pic|
I most definitely agree with that statement. No one should fight alone. We all need family and friends around us, especially when we are facing something really hard.
Honestly, I've had a pretty easy life. Other than when we nearly lost our sweet Princess back in 1997, and the occasional loss of a job and minor car accidents and surgeries, we've not really faced anything truly life-changing. About a month ago we had a lesson in church about trials and my burdens seem very light compared to others.
Especially compared to the Emerys.

I'll let you check out their website yourself, at www.rallyforemerys.com to read his heartbreaking story, but for those of you who live in the Salt Lake Valley and are searching for a Saturday activity, please consider stopping for a little while at Prospector Park on August 24.
It all starts with a Family Fun Run (registration from 8:15 - 8:45), followed by a carnival from 9:00 - 2:00. Plan on lunch from Texas Roadhouse for only $5, and say "hi" to my girls. The address is 10150 South 2200 West, directly north of Bingham High School. We'll be heading over around noon, after Sport's football game.
Maybe we are only the voices and hands of a few, but we want to make sure that Mike doesn't fight this battle alone. We just never know when we might need someone to rally the troops for one of us.
