A hero is a woman who does what she can
Romain Rolland (correction of gender bias - Mrs Button)
Tonight has nothing to do with buttons or sewing. I want to honour a hero. There are no words grand enough or grateful enough for this rare and precious soul. This is the best I can do:
When we were in a very black place and could not think what to do, how to make things right for Mr Button and our family, you gave us HOPE.
You offered a part of yourself to us. It was a noble, generous, compassionate, kind gift which you gave with simple, unconditional LOVE.
Because of your great, good, gift, we DREAM, again. We are dreaming of rolling in the grass, playing at the beach, long busy days in the garden, throwing a football around the yard, going out together at night, having energy to enjoy the 3 beautiful little Buttons we are blessed with. We DREAM about days and weeks and months without doctors or hospitals.
With full and joyful hearts, we say THANK YOU! You are an everyday hero who has done an extraordinary thing. I see the colour in My Darling's cheeks and the excitement in his voice and I can't help beaming. I am in awe at what you have done and I cannot help but share it with this little corner of the world.
I am taking care of Mr Button as he recovers from his kidney transplant. I will pop back when I can. Your support and prayers are gratefully appreciated.
