Trust Gratitude Inspiration Friday #6

I had so many different things I noticed today that I found inspiration from. 

Today, Adam and I played in the fourth annual golf tournament hosted by Angel Melina's parents, Mike and Desiree.

It was truly an honor to be a part of this special day to honor the life of this precious little girl.

Adam and I were two of 104 golfers that came together as a community to honor the incredible work that Desiree and Mike are doing in support of families that are trying to comprehend what no one can understand.

Last year Des and Mike donated 24 yearly Zoo passes to families who had children in the oncology ward.

That might not sound like much, but it is a huge gift to these families.  They also stock supplies for families with children in the bone marrow transplant unit.

They do this out of love for Melina, and for the compassion they have for these families.   Childrens's Hospital is having to expand the bone marrow transplant unit as there are too many children in the oncology ward.  Incredibly sad to hear of  that need.  Heart breaking.

It is also so inspiring to know that Mike and Desiree continue relentlessly in their efforts to provide support and hope to so many families.

One of the tee boxes had three very special young women watching over us.

Wow, how much love is present for these three angels?  I had to stop and take a picture, and wipe away the tears.  The tears now are no longer tears of sadness, replaced by tears you have when you just feel love in your heart.

Trusting that someday a cure for cancer will be found.

Gratitude for the stand Desiree and Mike are making in this fight.

Inspired by all of the love that lives on in our hearts for Melina, Kelly and Laiken.

What inspired you today?
