(Note: most people were saying they could not see the pics; I guess there were just too many, so I've put them in a slideshow instead.)
Yesterday Abby got her tongue painted purple. She was not happy. Why?
Because she's been poked, prodded, cut, stuck, jabbed, bent, bled and drained. She's sick of "new" stuff happening to her. So while getting a purple tongue might be FUN under normal circumstances, she wanted no part of it.
To help her turn it into something enjoyable, Daddy did his purple tongue pic, and we asked if some of you would join in. And of course you did.
I have to admit, I kept getting tears in my eyes over and over and over as I got these pictures ready to post. It just overwhelmed me that so many people would take time "purple up" just for Abby: whole families, babies, animals, grown men, teenagers... we are so undeserving of such a show of love. Abby deserves it, but Michelle and I are the ones who really get to see what big hearts you have.
Here are the pics we've received so far, and I'm going to print them all out and put them on the wall next to Abby's bed.
You folks... you're... THE BEST.
How do you spell LOVE? P-u-r-p-l-e G-r-e-en B-l-u-e Y-e-l-l-o-w T-o-n-g-u-e
We love you folks. You mean the world to us. If you send more, we will post more, and print them out to put in Abby's room.
