Ash Wednesday

Morning All
Hope you are all well and happy and feeling on top of the world!

Happy 3 weeks BirthdayKeaton, cant believe how quickly the time is going and how big and cute you are getting!

Nanna and I and our soldier attended Mass for Ash Wednesday this morning and it was wonderful! We took Deqlan with us as we knew there would be no children this morning as they are all in school! Deqlan loved the fans in the church but wasnt happy sitting through mass, so Mama and Deqlan went walking through the garden and Deqlan loved the wet grass on his feet ! I did manage to get him to get the ash on his forehead and I did manage did get him Blessed by Monsignour so it was a very special day for Deqlan in deed.

A lot of people came up to us to ask if this was THE Deqlan they had been praying for and where so glad to eventually see his gorgeous face and to see how well he was doing! It was wonderful to feel the support and love our parish continues to pour down upon us! Thank you to you all, you are such a HUGE part in Deqlans recovery!

So, no chocolate from today for me or Nanna and so far so good! Just a little something to give up for the HUGE amount that God gave up for us , by sending His only Son to us so that we may live our lives and be forgiven for our sins.

The Childrens Neuroblastoma Cancer Foundation created the following video to request people to do everything they can to request more funding to find a cure for neuroblastoma - please watch it and pass it on and continue fighting as hard as we can for our children and future children to be affected by this monster.

Have a great day
God Bless and all our love
Mark, Samm & Deqlan

Hey Samm

Have just checked out the NB link on Youtube, and it brought tears to my eyes, to think that funding has been cut for something that is so important to find a cure for. It broke my heart to see the many that haven't survived this awful disease, and just makes me EVEN MORE thankful that Deqlan has pulled through with the grace of God. We love you always...
