Parker’s House Dedication Is Tomorrow.

And I’m freaking out.  I feel like I have a million things to do and only about 24 hours to do them in.  I need it to stop raining and I need it to be really nice tomorrow.  Not too hot and not too cold.   Tomorrow is an important day for Parker’s House and The Parker Reese Foundation.  It is a chance for those to see what it is we do for CDH families.  A day for all to  feel the amazing peace, hope and excitment that exudes from Parker’s House. 

We have had more stuff donated for Parker’s House in the last week than I could have ever imagined.  My car is full from front to back.  Enough space for me to put me.  Our living room is packed full of stuff.  We had to get a trailer from a friend to haul more stuff.  We are taking two vehicles tonight because we needed that much space.  Is that not amazing?  A true testament to God’s amazing work. 

I know that tomorrow will be a crazy day and I probably won’t have time to post until late Sunday.  I am super excited about Parker’s House and the people involved.  With each day that passes I become more driven and inspired to truly make a difference for CDH and the families it affects.  There will be several CDH families there tomorrow, along with their family members and ours, and some medical professionals.  We are counting down the hours and checking our list one last time. 

Please say a prayer for us tomorrow.  For Parker’s House.  For The Parker Reese Foundation.  For Brad, Kellie and Carter Meyers.  For April, Russell and Nash Van Dyke.  For the people who will be traveling hours to attend.  Pray for good weather. 

And please pray for my brother-in-law, Roger Solano, who leaves at 7 a.m. on Monday for a year deployment to Columbia, South America.  He has served 15 years in the United States Army and needs our prayers as he leaves behind my sister, Jennifer, my niece Karsen and my nephew, Caden.  He will be missed more than words could ever say but I know that this time he has a very special angel going with him.

Good luck tomorrow Jessica! I will be praying for great weather and a great day for your house dedication! You are just so amazing in all you have done- and are still doing for CDH! As Jenny McCarthy would say….you are a “Mother Warrior!!!” :0) I look up to you so much for all your hard work and dedication you have put towards CDH in memory of Parker, and for all the other families effected by CDH!
I also wanted to donate some things to the house…but wanted to wait to see what things you may still need that you don’t have or didn’t get in donations. I have a TON of baby toys that I need to go through! I will email you more on that later!

Godspeed to your broth-in-law for a safe deployment and return home! I know how hard it is to see a loved one go overseas and how hard it can be on the family and children! They are in my prayers!

Have a wonderful day tomorrow!!
Happy Friday!

Jes, I will be thinking of you and praying for you tomorrow. Rain or shine (and it will shine, I promise) it will be an absolutely amazing and gorgeous day. Parker will be shining on you guys tomorrow brighter than ever, knowing the hard work and blood shed and tears you’ve put into her house in her honour. I wish I could be there to support you. I think it’s going to be a day of many, many smiles. I am extremely proud of you, Jes. I’ll be there in spirit.

Love Lauren

OMG!!!!!!!!!! Super yay, I can not wait to hear all about it and see pictures. I wish we could be there. I’m trying real hard to shuffle things though so we can be at the golf tournament.
I’ll be thinking about y’all tomorrow.

I hope today is a beautiful day–both weather wise and Parker wise! How awesome about all the donations, wow. We are definitely thinking of you and wishing we could be there! I know we are in some small way, even if it is just a couple pictures on the wall. Way to go Parker, way to go Mom and Dad, way to go all of Parker’s supporters.
