And the Wish is...
Yes, I should have shared days ago about Von's wish.
We've just been so happy in our new home unpacking and marking our territory, who has time to blog?
The Make-a-Wish folks came out to our house and interviewed Von to see what his wish is. They are amazing people and they volunteer because they want to make a difference in young people's lives. Their hearts are in it and they are the kind of people that you just love from the first moment you meet them.
So Von's three wishes (because you're supposed to have three wishes just in case one doesn't work out)...drum roll please...
1) A trip to Africa
2) A hot tub with special lights
3) A motorcycle side car
Yes, I know, all of these sound like MY wishes, but I promise they are Von's and are un-coached.
I cant' help it if Von has seen photos of my trips to Africa and heard stories. It's not my fault we spent the last 8 months at Papa Rolf's house and got to utilize his hot tub for excellent family times. Don't blame me for the coffee table book that was sitting out and had photos of a vintage BMW sidecar.
It just amazes me that people spend their valuable time and resources to give kids like Von a reason to keep on fighting things like cancer. It's a tough job. They lose some of the kids they are trying to serve.
I tip my hat to Make-a-Wish! They are truly making a difference!
