with this piece of cheese...
In my last post, I wrote about this sign from above that manifested itself in the dried cheese in my frying pan. So many people commented that I should list this stupid piece of cheese on Ebay b/c of the lady who sold that Virgin Mary Grilled Cheese a couple years ago for $28,000.
I was turned off by the thought of that at first because I was thinking I could never live with myself if I paid off all of my debt by selling a piece of cheese to some LOON for $100,000!!! But then I thought of my friend Mimi and her 4-year old son Julian!
Julian was diagnosed last year with Medulloblastoma...brain cancer. Julian and his family deserve an OUT-OF-THE-ORDINARY, CRAZY, SPECIAL CHRISTMAS! I chatted with my FUN friend Dawn, and we decided, if we sold this piece of cheese, we could make that CRAZY SPECIAL CHRISTMAS a reality! It could help Julian's family to buy Christmas presents or pay medical bills!
Wouldn't that be great?! What a blessing it would be if it not only put me in a better frame of mind this past Monday morning, but it also helped out this wonderful family dealing with the horrible reality of childhood cancer! So, up for bid is my soon-to-be-famous CHEESE CROSS...it is approximately 2 1/2" long and 3/4" wide.
PLEASE help us to give Julian and his family he Christmas they deserve! Let's make some history!!! Email this auction to everyone you know, bid if you can but ABOVE ALL PRAY FOR A MIRACLE!!!!!
Dawn and I will keep you updated, so keep checking back!!! PLEASE
12/05 -10pm: Many of you have asked so I added a DONATE button in the pink sidebar - so if the bidding goes higher than you can commit to, please feel free to donate what you can - I will keep you posted on this running total, too!
12/06 - 2pm: WOW! What an outpouring of love - I am so humbled!!!
Here are our stats...we have rec'd PayPal donations from PA, MN, IA, TN, TX and CA totalling 216.97!! There have been 2965 hits on the auction and it is up to 157.50 with 108 people "watching" the auction!!
The neat thing is all the comments people are leaving on the auction, so I am posting them on the auction when I respond!! Heather from RICE-A-RONI-VILLE decided to do the same thing for a local friend of hers whose son is also battling cancer!!! It's a revolution!
12/06 - 3:40pm - Oops! Someone brought it to Dawn's attention that there may be a glitch with our efforts on ebay simply b/c Julian is not an ebay recognized charity...I have an email in to see what I need to do so the auction doesn't get pulled. If we have to cancel the auction and re-list it, Dawn and I will both post a new link!
12/07 - 12 midnight - Just got news that Julian's MRI today was devestating to say the least. I am having a hard time even typing it - he has only weeks left on this earth. I don't know what to say other than PRAY PRAY PRAY! God be with this family! My dear friend, Michele just IMd me and said, "God can still do miracles!" Amen! That's the kind of faith we need to muster! NOW!
12/07 - 11:33pm - A message from Julian's mom, Mimi...For now , Julian is here. And as long as he can still smile, so will I . I will have plenty of time to be sad later on, for now I am soaking up any ray of sunshine rising from my baby's face,and i suggest you do the same. I will have plenty of time to figure out how to live with a broken heart for the rest of my life... Remember don't ever forget to kiss your children goodnight, even if they are asleep, they know... Mimi
