A huge thank you to the lovely and talented Lauren Warner of SippingLemonade.com for the sweetest “happy tears” I’ve had in a long time. Lauren’s amazing video footage of the Tarrant County Buddy Walk is the type of video that deserves to go viral: full of truth, beauty, and totally cute kids, Lauren’s film is more than a recap, it’s a call to action. I dare you to watch this video and not feel moved. Thank you Lauren, for sharing this experience and for helping me to see the possibilities. Your family is blessed to have such an amazing mom, and our world is blessed by Kate.
