Beautiful Gifts

 I believe that the universe works in mysterious ways. I believe that if you want something bad enough (in some, but not all cases) it will somehow, sometime happen. 
 A couple weeks ago, James received a bit of an odd phone call. It was from a travel agent from the flight centre in downtown Vancouver saying we had an anonymous gift for he and I to fly almost anywhere in the world. The skeptic in me thought there must be a catch because it was too good to be true. A few days later, we went to the flight centre and discovered there actually were no strings attached… no catch… no scam. We were free to travel to wherever our hearts desired! Are you kidding me!? AMAZING! I was literally speechless sitting there in the travel centre with tears in my eyes. This was after a morning filled with the harsh reminders of the downfalls of having CF followed by a good old bathtub meltdown.  Suffice it to say, this surprising and remarkable piece of good news had spectacular timing.

Since then James and I have enjoyed just thinking about the possibilities. I’m still completely blown away by this incredibly generous gift and wanted to share this news to let people know that the pure goodness in the world still exists!

I consider James and I to be incredibly lucky people and I believe certain people have come into our lives for certain reasons. Whether they’ve provided support, taught us what strength means and how to use it, how to be patient, how to appreciate the little joys in life or have provided us with opportunity to travel freely! The words thank you can’t possibly begin to express our gratitude and appreciation towards those people, in particular to that person who gave us this opportunity. But, thank you will just have to do… so to whoever you are, THANK YOU! Thank you Thank you Thank you Thank you!
