One little boy was so cute, he was 3 years old and so strong! He thinks he's the Incredible Hulk and I can see why. He made a warrior necklace in honor of his brother who passed away this May at the age of 5. I gave him one of my beads and I hope that one day he can understand how much it means to me and what it represents. I also had a family drive all the way from Lame Deer, Montana, about 3 hours away, to make warrior necklaces with us and I was very happy to give their son one of my beads.
The newspaper showed up to do the interview and channel 8 came out again to do a follow up interview. So the afternoon was quite busy with interviews and meeting the kids. I absolutely love doing this, it makes all my walking so worth it, and makes me feel so good, no material possessions in the world could replace these memories that I am making.
Before I left I took some pictures with the sign I made with Kristie and her daughter Mackenzie with some of the kids in the Beads of Courage program along with Kristie's son, Kaydin. it was such a good day, so glad that western hospitality really shines through in the state of Montana.
After the day at the hospital I went out to dinner to a really good pizza place in Billings, they had Thai peanut sauce pizza... It tasted like a spring roll pizza, sounds weird, but it was so good! We got home around 9 and I pretty much went straight to bed. Another great day on the road.
