Well this week has been slugging along!  But today is hump day which means we are halfway to the weekend, which means we are almost to Sunday, which mean we are close to watching the Superbowl!!

All I can think about this week is the game.  Everything I read and everything I see is Seahawks!

Over the last month everywhere you turn there is something Seahawk related.  Each and every street I turn down has a 12th man flag or Seahawks sign.  Businesses are painting their windows, putting up signs which read "I'm In".  This whole western side of the state has the Seahawk fever!  The build up is so exciting.  I love how our city is becoming united and we all have something to root for. 

Seahawks, you are making the normal dreary month of January spirited!  So for that I thank you!  Your city is behind you and may the experience at the Superbowl make us a team to be reckoned with for years to come!  Seattle needs this and you deserve this!!  Good luck and we wish you a victory on Sunday!!! GO HAWKS!!

I will leave you with this article that one of my friends from high school wrote.  It was published in Sports Illustrated.  WORD.

On Friday we got word that one of our good friends sons had been diagnosed with Kawasaki disease.  So scary and terrifying for his parents!! Most of us are located in Seattle and The Hunter family is in Wenatchee where their son, Bennett (3years old) was in the hospital.  Within minutes of the text coming thru to all of us about the situation, everyone started coordinating on what we could do to help.  By the morning someone had arranged dinner for the family for the next few nights, another had ordered puzzles for the kids to be delivered, and another had their mom (who lives in Wenatchee) deliver snacks and a balloon to the hospital the next day(and we received a picture that Bennett is indeed sleeping with his Cars balloon :)). 

This brings me to the subject of my post.  I know a lot of people say that they have the best friends in the world...but I truly think I am blessed with the best.  They are the type of friends that drop everything when someone is in need and do whatever it takes to make sure that your family knows they are there for you and that not only are they praying for your family, but everyone they know is praying.  I am so happy that I get to surround myself with such loving and caring people.    

Bennett is still in the hospital but has been fever free today.  Please keep the Hunter family in your prayers and especially that spunky little Bennett.  We wish him the quickest recovery possible.  Love to the Hunters and we know that things will be back to normal in no time!
