The world is a crazy place and many people are not happy with it. To them I say: now you can make it better.
No, you won’t permanently change things, but if you think you could then you’re a delusional megalomaniac. (Have you thought about running for office?) What you can do is make some little kid’s day just a TINY bit better. I came across a story about the kid below. He’s a little five year old who has lived his entire life battling what usually beats down adults, but he’s still trucking. So, send the kid a card, ok? Just do it. What will it cost you? $2? Including postage?
I can’t even buy a lottery ticket for that much these days, but I can make a little kid who was born with a raw deal smile? That’s money well spent and then some.
As some of you may know, Kaiden’s birthday is coming up. He will be the big 5 on October 30th. I just want to take a second to tell you all why this birthday is so important.
When Kaiden was 8 months old he was diagnosed with Idiopathic Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy + heart failure. When we were fighting to get him a heart transplant we asked his Cardiologists the dreaded question, how much time does he have without a transplant? We were told he had 5-10 years, with 10 years being entirely too optimistic and 5 years being most likely. He will be 5 soon. Now his heart function is in the normal range. He is literally a medical mystery. His entire life is a miracle. He has proved everyone wrong and continues to do so. That is why the #5 means so much to us.
In honor of Kaiden’s 5th birthday, we want to collect cards for him from every state. Just a card. You can write him an inspirational quote, you can tell him how he has inspired you, or if you have children they can draw him a picture.
Kaiden has been on Hospice for almost a year and it has been a very long journey but we are all so grateful and blessed that he is here with us. We are also so very grateful to have all of you, his prayer warriors, on this journey with us. Please share this as we would love to collect as many cards as possible for him. Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts.
Cards can be sent to P.O. Box 814 Paris, Tennessee 38242.
