Those Facebook memory updates usually bring up sad moments for me, but not today, this was one of the BEST moments through not only Hannah's journey with cancer, but what a special lifetime moment! She was SO happy to be back on the field with her teammates, and they all played with heart and soul for their dear friend. When Hannah scored that winning goal in double overtime, it was the BEST feeling ever...I can close my eyes and bring myself right back there, when in that moment there was nothing but pure joy...no cancer, no pain, nothing but joy. It really was one of the happiest moments of our lives, and it showed everyone that no matter what life throws at you, don't ever ever give up. So, today I say thank you to facebook for reminding me to remember the joy and the extraordinary impact of one young girl.
I can't believe this was 2yrs ago...one of the BEST days, a day no one will forget. Miss you, my angel girl. I'm sure you're scoring goals up there in heaven too. 💜⚽💜
Wow, lots of great things happened today... Hannah went back to school today for the first time in nearly a month. Not for the whole day, but she was able to enjoy lunch with her friends and the afternoon classes. She was also cleared to play soccer, so she was finally able to play in her first game in the middle school as an 8th grade captain. To say she was excited is an understatement. Today the game was against Wall Twp...they were pretty confident since they had beaten our team earlier in the season. What they didn't bank on was the determination and heart of 18 girls who were thrilled to have their friend and teammate Hannah back on the field with them. The lady Panthers played an amazing game and the game was tied 0-0 at the end. The game went into overtime and then it happened...Hannah scored the winning goal! Omg, everyone went wild and cheered like crazy...of course, me being the emotional basket case that I am, just cried...tears of joy of course. What a storybook ending to an awesome game. I have to say, Hannah scored the goal but EVERY one of those girls played with heart...great job today lady Panthers! Robbie had fun at the game too, though he spent more time running around than watching the game! Thank you Daniele for playing with Robbie...we can't wait to come over tomorrow and play some more! Jeni, we may have a budding romance on our hands! And, a special thank you to everyone who continues to pray for Hannah...it means more to us than you'll ever know. She is a strong girl and proves it to us each and every day. Today just lifted her spirits so much. Wow is all I can say...today was good....real good ...
