Today I was proud to live in a small Texas town. There is a little girl that actually lives backed up to my parents who is six years old and has a rare disease called Rasmussen's Encephalitis. To treat her disease her parents are preparing to have half of her brain removed. Today they had a send off for this little six year old. In our town there are 3 elementary schools, 1 sixth grade school, 1 middle school and 1 high school, and 2 private schools. Today they had a parade for Jessie. She rode in a old pink muscle car from school to school and all the students were out lining the roads wearing pink, waving pink ribbons, many of the trees through town were covered with pink bows and lots of the signs in front of business wished her well. As I stood in front of one of the elementary schools and watched her parade go by, I was choked up thinking of all her parents are going through and how brave they must be. I've linked her blog to the sidebar so you can pray for her as she goes through her surgery and see what a sweet girl and what a sweet family this is. God Bless you Jessie. God Bless you Cris and Kristi and your three boys.
