What a great picture. I just have to say that Meko is a real cutie! We have 5 pugs, all rescues. Isn't it amazing how many of these adorable, funny little dogs are abused and abandoned? I love reading your blog! You have a wonderful family!

Looks like you guys had a beautiful day for your walk!
Tricia's mom looks exactly like she did the last time I saw her... about 10 years ago (back at FBC).
Congrats on the money raised so far!

Nathan I was quessing that's
how you feel when you see your beautiful girls togeather...but I cannot imagine the true feeling because I have never been (to the degee)exactly where you are in your shoes, I do know that it is a wonderful,emotional,overwhelming,
consuming like no other feeling joy happiness Thank God and for that I am so happy for you, this has been a really rough ride for you & tricia (to say the very least)...being part of your "internet followers" for us to now see the road ahead for Tricia & Gwyneth Rose & Yourseself,
speaks volumes of answered prayers
all the while seeing your "bigger plan" laid out before our eyes,
"getting to know you" guys makes me know there are no others more deserving that the three of you.
God Bless,
Praying as always for you & yours,

Shari said...

Great job and great pics!! I cannot do the walk, but I did give you some $$ --wish I could do more. I have MS and my family participates in the MS150 volunteering, fund raising and riding. We all need to do these things to eradicate some of these diseases!! Glad to see the team that walked for Tricia

Love and prayers

Sara said...

wish I could have been there to join in on the fun - looks like it was a blast!!

Jay, Christi and Andrew said...

I've been reading your blog for awhile and was amazed today when you posted a picture of someone I know! I cannot believe you know Charlotte. My husband was on staff at her home church and was actually her brother and sister's youth minister. She is such an amazing person. What a small world.

Laura Smith said...

Hi- I have recently found your blog and have been praying for you since! Tricia sounds like one tough lady and Gwyneth is a strong baby! It is really awesome that you update daily! It is a constant reminder of God's great works! What a brave husband/dad!

Way to go all you walkers and sponsors!!!!

Angie said...

How awesome!! Our walk is next Saturday, and we are looking forward to it. We had our one big fundraiser last night and raised about $4000. I think our team will exceed our goal of $10,000 this year. One step closer...:)

Love to all.

Staci said...

Awesome! Did you wear your orange shoes??

Angela R. said...

That is great! Love the pictures, looks like you had a beautiful day. Our walk here in NY is next month, looking forward to it. Thanks to you and all the others that participate in the walk. Great jo with the money raised! It will hopefully help others with CF sooner than later!

God Bless All!!

We had a great time "Walking for Tricia" Saturday and would like to challenge everyone to join a team in their area or create a team and walk to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. It was fun and educational for my children to learn to raise money for a cause. Tricia and Nate you have been such an inspiration to me and my family and friends that the least we could have done was to walk in Tricia's honor. It was so nice to meet you, Meka and Agnes.
