Move That Bus

DSCN0668

Today Allison and I were able to experience the move that bus day. It was a very crowded, hot and we were sprinkled intermittent showers. But with that said I am thrilled we where able to share in the grand finale of the week. Allison deserves a toast for a job well done.P1020930
 What an incredible amount of perseverance she has exhibited through out this week. Several mornings when I woke up I prayed Alli would say Mom I am tired I think we should stay home today. Instead she would say well Mom if YOU want to stay home today I guess we can. No I did not stay home and I told her I was thrilled to volunteer another day. I really did  want to spend another day at the site, but I was tired. With each passing day I was  more thrilled, delighted and overjoyed with Allison’s ability to work in overwhelming environment.

I cannot wait to see the completed show on television. This house will be the two hour season premiere and will air in September. I do have one more wish. It would be amazing if at some time in the future Allison could meet the family that this house belongs to.

P.S. I did get to paint. I painted dance bags for the four older girls and I helped paint the beds that are in the younger four girls bedroom. But I realized as the week progressed that this week100_0777
 had nothing to do with me. This week was all about Allison.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS! That must have been a delight. I’m trying to think of what would be a commensurate experience for me, but I can’t think of anything that doesn’t involved being outside! Which is OUT – and I don’t want to spend a week with needy writers or actors trying to finish a project in a ridiculously small period of time – and, WAIT – oh no – well, silly me. Glad neither of you dehydrated.

    This must have been amazing. It has been so exciting reading about it! I have seen the show a couple of times when my kids were watching it. I will make it a point to watch the premiere in September! I do remember really liking the show…I think it made me cry!

    Susan, I am awed at how selfless you were in all of this, and how incredibly generous of you to get up every day and take part in this for Allison.
    She looks like she is on cloud nine.
    Isn’t it amazing how when you give unconditionally it always ends up that you receive something marvelous in return?
    You must be so proud of her, and I am so proud of you… you WORKED !!!!
    love you susan…
