September 19 Gordie's Day

Every year since I was diagnosed with ALS, my wife's sister and husband have a fundraiser for us to help with all the expenses involved with ALS. The fundraiser includes a motorcycle run, car show, and chicken bar-b-que along with other food items that are donated. It was a picture perfect day.
I am truly grateful but I'm humbled by the generosity, kindness and love that I receive from everyone that come out and support us.
As much as I hate this disease, I can say God is good. He has brought people into my life that I would otherwise never had the pleasure of meeting. He has shown me his love and kindness through others, many that I've never known.
I know I am in God's hands and I will trust him with my life.
Thanks to all for your prayers, love, support in this journey.
