I got home from the training walk this morning to find a package on my front step from our team captain, D’Lyn. As I put in my first post, Dione, Wendy and I are walking with Team Tiara. It’s the team’s sixth year to walk in the 3 Day and they have raised close to $500,000. D’Lyn is the amazing chick who organizes the team and keeps us on track.
D’Lyn sent a care package to me for Ali. It contained a beautiful, handmade quilt and a silver bracelet inscribed with Isaiah 40:31 – “Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.” The quilt was part of a fundraiser that Team Tiara organized – quilters from 19 states and five countries donated these beautiful blankets. The bracelet represents one that D’Lyn’s mom wore during her treatment, and that D’Lyn still wears today.

Thank you, D’Lyn!
