pink shoelaces

Joel and I went to a small Christian high school here in Kansas.  Joel grew up here.  I moved here when I was a sophomore.  We were high school sweethearts.

This school has loved us so well through Cora's time in the hospital and after she went to be with Jesus.  Even the basketball teams have found a way to show their love.  

Ivy (Joel's sister) is a senior at Berean.  Owen (my brother) also goes to school there and is a junior.  They are both on the varsity basketball teams.  

After Cora went to be with Jesus they all started wearing pink shoelaces in their basketball shoes.  They are still wearing them.

Even the boys!  It makes me smile to see all those pink shoelaces just for our sweet Cora. 

Both teams just won sub-state and are heading to state this week.  I sent my friend Laura after the boys to try to grab a picture after the game.  They all got their shoes in and then decided they wanted the trophy in the picture too.  They said that this win was for Cora!  That will make you teary eyed.

Thank you for remembering our little angel.  Thank you for showing so much love and support to our families!

Go Warriors--TAKE STATE!

LOVE THIS. I have 3 HS aged boys who are ball players. They play tough, but inside they can be so sweet and thoughtful. Very cool. I salute these student athletes--they are excellent representatives of their school, their families and your community. This picture makes me smile...

You can't get any sweeter than that! It's so nice to see how people pull together in difficult times. And even nicer to see young boys and girls doing so. These days young kids get a bad rap for being wild and crazy! This just proves that there is hope for the future generations. Go state!
Thinking and praying for you daily!

WOW-that is so neat. So many things happening because of your sweet baby. I am sure the witness you all have because of this tragedy will reach so many. I know it must be so hard for you and I pray that each day you will do better, I know there will be lots of hard days ahead but it must be neat to see how many people care for you and support you. Our God is good-sometimes we don't know the reason for things that happen but we know that in eternity we will understand. Thanks for sharing about the shoelaces!

How wonderful is that? This is officially my first comment, but I have followed your blog for a few weeks now.

I am also so inspired by your faith and the outpouring of love from others you are experiencing. God is working-and it shows. If I ever had the opportunity to just give you and your hubby a huge hug-please know I would-so I am sending them from afar. Can't wait to order some items from Cora's etsy store to support her playground. Keep your chins up-and I will continue to keep your family in my prayers. -Shannon

Thinking of you and praying. Please know that you aren't ever far from my thoughts, or anyone who has read your story. You are loved and I hope you can find some comfort in that.

I found your blog through a friend of a friends blog and I couldn't stop reading it. I am so sorry for your loss. You have amazing strength to be able to go on and I admire that.

Don't know if you've ever heard the song Divine Romance by Phil Wickham... I've been really listening to the words and singing it a lot lately and each time I think of and pray for you. Hope you're finding small glimpses of joy in your "new normal".

Hi, you didn't have your email address listed but I wanted to ask you where all of you girls got your scrabble tile pendants. I was trying to look at one close up, I'm assuming they had attachment to Cora?

Also I keep checking your Etsy store. Im anxious to buy a 3T dress for my daughter and a block for my desk at work. I'm sure you're busy with orders. The stuff is so cute.

Hope you're doing well. I think about you 3 often. My co-worker is from Salina Kansas originally so she recognized your hometown.

And Mackenzie hasn't been found wandering the nieghborhood since that day. We've learned!

I'm so glad I got to see you.

But you could've picked a day when I'd at least showered or fixed my hair. I was a bit embarrassed about how I looked (and probably smelled). haha!

I held it together until you left and then I bawled.

God bless you!
