Medals 4 Mettle

We recently met our new found friend Jacqui as she was working the garage sale with the rest of her wonderful family. She sent me a message a few weeks back and explained how she wanted to present Little Miss Aviana with a medal.

She challenged herself, trained hard and successfully completed a half marathon. She received a medal in the shape of a shamrock for all of her hard work! I admire her. I am someone who runs three miles total and feels as though I ran twenty!

Jacqui hand delivered the medal to Aviana last week. We were honored to see her again and accept the medal. Medals 4 Mettle is an amazing non-profit organization. I will post the link below. If you have a moment it is definitely worth checking out. It is very inspirational!!

Thank you again, Jacqui!


  1. For each petal on the shamrock
    This brings a wish your way-
    Good health, good luck, and happiness
    For today and every day.

    Funny Jacqui chose the shamrock medal...she was born on St. Patrick's Day. :)

  2. You are so very welcome! And thank you for your kind words :)

    I share Jill's wish, and know that Little Miss Aviana's strength will keep shining through. Avi is truly inspirational, as well as the strength and Love of you & your family.
