An inspirational story

Hello! Wow, i've been gone for a while now, haven't i?  I've been busy busy busy. Just celebrated my 56th birthday on the 1st of June!  Had a fun day, but i'll save that for my next blog. 

i wanted to share the story of Tripp Roth and his mommy Courtney.  I found this blog quite by accident, but now, its in my favorite places.  Its heartbreaking and inspirational at the same time. Please take the time to read this blog.  this is the story in a nutshell:

Tripp was born on May 14, 2009. He was diagnosed with a rare genetic skin disease called "EB." Any type of friction on his skin or mucous membranes causes blisters. They told us he would not live to be a year old. Every day he amazes us by his strength. He is a fighter and with all he has been through, he has never given up. He is the strongest person I know. Tripp wakes up each morning with a smile on his face. Every day spent with him is a blessing. God has a special plan for him. I'm just blessed to be able to witness that plan.

Tripp passed away January 14th, but the story doesn't end there.  Please take the time to read about Tripp and his incredible mommy.  Their story will forever change you!
