Nitty Gritty Dirty Grief

You Got the Love

There is a Florence and the Machines song that I rock out to quite often. 

The lyrics go like this: 

Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying “Lord I just don’t care”
But you’ve got the love I need To see me through

Sometimes it seems that the going is just too rough
And things go wrong no matter what I do
Now and then it seems that life is just too much
But you’ve got the love I need to see me through

This is my mantra lately. 

‘Cuz I gotta tell ya, 
Ya’ll got the love. 

Thursday was our Miracles for Mito Silent Auction and in case ya’ll are wondering what we have been doing this past year, here’s a breakdown: 

Financial help for two handicap vans
One Stair lift
One Scooter
Respite Care
Travel expenses to see a Specialist out of State
Meals delivered to families in the hospital
Supplement coverage
Sponsorship into the National Mitochondrial Database
Purchase of the Oxygraph 2K Diagnostic Machineis 

This was only possible because of all of you and your generosity. 

I was quite weepy the week before- as I get when I think of everything our tribe has given….

This is the rocking horse my uncle made and donated…. It is the best rocking horse ever! 

And our fabu, collectors item New Belgium bike donation by our dear Susan and Andy….

Me and Hubs….I didn’t donate him 🙂 

Heather, Heather and Hilary! Hilary managed the event and lovely Heather volunteered. Thank you!!!

Mama and Hilary 🙂

SOOOO much stuff! So generous!

Our beautiful Mito Superstars

Lovely friends who have met because of our Mito kids. 

Me and the Prez 🙂 As a side note, I TOTALLY kidnapped that necklace. I bid on it but decided I would ‘model’ it before the bidding closed. 

This night….THIS NIGHT….I could have floated on the love and hope in the air. The money donated will continue to support our families.

And it is all because of you all. 

You got the Love
