What a week of numbers. So much wonderfulness accomplished. I'm so glad you did the half-marathon. Allie would be so proud! Enjoy that massage, you have definitely deserved it!

Tara said...

Wow! I'm tired after reading that! Glad it was a successful week :)

Greta said...

Sounds like a very busy and successful week. Congrats on raising so much money! Try and enjoy some rest!

Kelly said...

You are one busy lady!! Congrats on the success of Heroes for Handbags! How awesome about the half marathon as well!
I wanted to thank you... I've been following your story since Allie got sick (my Ethan is just 13 days younger) and through your blog found Debbie's. I also have twins the same age as hers. I was so privelaged to meet her, Brandon and their adorable babies this past weekend!! I was visiting my good friend Austin who knows you. She & Dominic were in your/Maggie's Gymboree class. What a small world! At any rate, Debbie was wonderful as I knew she would be! We're heading back to Dallas in June with the entire family... hopefully we'll get to see them again and maybe meet you and Maggie as well!

Jenny, you still amaze me after almost 5 years. Everything you do to honor Allie, your devotion to your family, and the amazing things HFC has accomplished? It's outstanding.
