as you can see, we had a crazy full day! after 13.1 hours of dancing (and a 4 am wake up–rough!), I am about the most tired I have ever been, but I feel happy and…full. not like with food (although that is also true), but my soul feels full. It is amazing and emotional to hear the stories of families who have faced what seemed to be insurmountable odds and come out on the other side with the child they feared they may lose. it’s amazing to be a part of a group and event that is doing so much good. I am so thankful that, 4 years ago when Jamie told me about the first dance marathon, I got up the guts to ask her if I could join them and to commit to raising $400 in a week, and to show up at a hotel in Chicago only (barely) knowing Jamie. It was, and continues to be, among the most rewarding things I get to do with my time. I am also, in case you can’t tell from all the pictures, so grateful for Harlow, and her health, and for a long but good day hanging out with her awesome family.
