Hope & Prayer
Hope & Prayer
The Theme is Hope, the Prayer is that you will read below about a special lil one name Memphis and maybe even reach deep into your hearts and help a little...or alot. My dear friend Nina met this little Angel simply shooting at her job one day and as she loves and cares about strangers in need as friends she could not just stand by and watch. She went into action and you can take part in that action. In this season of Hope...would you give Hope to a family that is struggling as their baby has undergone some harsh realities in his most recent task to fight for his life. Click on the link below and you can read his story and see the pictures of Memphis. As a mother of three children I am moved deeply by the trials and tribulations of this young family. My friend Nina you may not see so much on BP lately but that is because she is busy giving of her time with no recognition needed, giving the recognition and praise to others while she serves everyone amidst great health issues that would

Sheesh, thank you so much for your role in helping me to help this family in need. I hope all who have been blessed with healthy children and grandchildren will respond to this family's situation as their needs are great. I covet prayers for guidance and strength as I work to help this family.
Love your photo and cherish the sentiment.

Fabulous portrait, Sheesh! It is my hope that we might build a strong chain of loving friends across the country to help Memphis and his family...and to help Nina give them hope for the future. We have a strong link in that chain here in the Heartland!

Unless we have been there we can never know the pain, worry, and the feeling of helplessness when our child or grandchild is suffering a serious illness. We can only imagine. I think it is wonderful that you and Nina have reached out to help this family. They need all the hope we can offer, be it money, prayers, or both.
Excellent portrait and theme shot, Sheesh.
