Happy Saturday friends! With all the rain we've been having I'm more than happy to be seeing lots of sunshine and 88 degrees in the ten day forecast! Woo hoo!
Anyways... that's not what I really want to talk about right now. I want to talk about Kellie and a wonderful group of people from Leander, TX.
I've told you about Kellie and her accident. You can read about it here.
Kellie has been moved to someone's home because she has no insurance and no rehab place will take her without insurance.
All of her friends have come together to be her "nurses, doctors and therapists." It's truly an amazing story of faith, hope and love.
Kellie and her friends have searched youtube to find videos on what kind of therapy to do. And then they do it. Kellie is getting stronger and stronger every day and even though the doctors told her she would most likely be a quadriplegic she is using her arms, feeding herself and sitting on her own.
People from all over the country are collecting and sending money to help Kellie out.

Medical stores are donating all kinds of things... including a bed and wheelchair.
God is all over this situation and it often brings me to tears. Our God is sooo good and He loves us so much and it's all about HIS glory!
Last night Kellie was on the news.
My hope is that people (including you!) would continue to share her story. The story needs to be heard by the people that can continue to fill in the needs that her friends and family can't. Kellie still needs an accessible van and it would be great if she could get connected with a therapist. Post the video to your blog, post it on facebook or simply just link to my posts. Doesn't matter how you share it... just please take a moment and do it.
And keep praying... for Kellie to gain more and more strength and movement throughout her body. Also pray for everyone else involved. For her friends and family that are so selflessly working with her to do the therapy that they can that they do no wear out because this could be a long journey for everyone. Pray for Jeanette who is the woman who has opened her home to Kellie and all of her friends.
You can continue to get updates and information about Kellie at http://teamkellie.weebly.com/index.html. There is also a link at the top of that site where you can send a card to Kellie and there is a way on the home page to send in donations. Every penny helps.
Don't forget about Kellie... it's not over yet.
