Eight Fairy Godmothers

Today's gift are eight Fairy Godmothers.

Today my daughter is very lucky to have eight Fairy Godmothers (nine including me) flying to Disney to run in the Princess Half Marathon in her honor on the Girl Power 2 Cure Team.

If it were not for my daughter having Rett Syndrome she would not have:

  • Eight Fairy Godmothers running for her in the Disney Princess Half Marathon
  • I would not have met three of her Fairy Godmothers as our paths only crossed due to Rett Syndrome.
  • I, along with two other Fairy Godmothers would never have (probably) run a half marathon.
  • I would never have met or have the amazing friendships I do with these eight incredible Fairy Godmothers.
I am beyond blessed to have these eight women stand by side everyday, but training for a half marathon too in honor of my daughter makes our friendship so much stronger.  Last year I ran this same race with seven Fairy Godmothers and of those only one is running again with me.  So really my daughter has 15 Fairy Godmothers (16 including me)!  Pretty amazing how one little girl can truly touch the lives of so many!

I know how hard it is to train for this race, between finding time and being there for your family....and I don't work (well, I actually have this incredible full time job, but the pay isn't what it should be...CEO of the Home!).  Of the eight Fairy Godmothers running this year every one of them works a full time job AND we have 21 kids between us! And they found time to not only train for my daughter, but take away time from their families to be there for mine!!!!

My daughter is one lucky girl and thanks to her, I'm equally as lucky!

Here is a quote for today....

Good friends are hard to find, harder to leave and impossible to forget - Author Unknown

Friendship isn't about whom you have known the longest...It's about who came, and never left your side...- Author Unknown
