A birthday blessing

Do you know how sometime you come across a kid that you know is going to make a difference in this word? You know....a young man that has so much heart, so much compassion, so much awesomeness that it actually makes YOU look at what you are doing and want to do more? Well....Mason is one of those kiddos. He was Brooklyn's BIGGEST fan as she was preparing for the special needs Christmas play (seeing it like 3 times I think!) He has always just "talked" to Brooklyn like he does any 6 year old - Rett Syndrome does not bother him - except for the fact that he WANTS it cured!
I got a text from his mom Amy saying that Mason was having his birthday party and had decided that instead of asking for gifts from his buddies - he wanted money to for Rett.....to help Brooklyn. It is not often a text makes me cry but this one did.
Amazing people like Mason and his mommy keep me going. Their lives are not daily affected by Rett Syndrome like mine but still - they help....always.
Mason - you are A.W.E.S.O.M.E. - HAPPY Birthday. Thank you for making YOUR special day - special for US too!
His donation???? $88.00 - HOW COOL IS THAT!!!???

Mason is one special kid it sounds like and I bet he has some pretty incredible parents that have raised him to be so thoughtful. Way to go to Mason and his family!

Brooklyn is a very special girl and I truly believe that she is here on a very special mission. She brings out the best in everyone who knows her.
