Touching doesn't describe this .....

Tuesday night we (Me & my JH Gals)  volunteered at The Miracle League in Edmond and had a BALL, literally!!! They play at Mitch Park and I am not sure who had more fun.....us or the teams??? This is a special league for disabled children and we fell in love! They even have a wheelchair assessable field!
This was a rewarding experience and I can't wait to volunteer again!! Luckily I am once again the Community Outreach Chair and I get to decide these things! To learn more about this wonderful organization click here!!
This is my new pal Destiny and I can not explain her properly.....JOYFUL is not a great enough word to describe her. Destiny is in 9th grade and LOVES softball. The rule is everyone in this game gets a hit...and Destiny has some disabilities that hinder her playing ability but this gal swung and on her 15th swing got a hit......and she was nothing but smiles. At the end of the night she introduced me to her mom and this really touched me. This is a night where I drove home with a smile so big and I fell into bed with a heavy heart.

What an awesome thing you're doing! As I like to say, there's a special place in Heaven for you!! I'm also thankful I'm not the only one that takes 15 swings before I actually hit the ball...no kidding, and that's if I even hit it then!! Love you girly!!
