Friends, Thoughts

Come Together…

 

There is a police officer in the small town of Friendswood, Texas who everyone recognizes. Maybe you’ve seen him directing traffic in a school zone, maybe you’ve had the unfortunate run-in because you were speeding or perhaps you just saw his friendly face and started a conversation. Whatever the circumstance, chances are, you know Officer Waggoner.

There is a man, in the small town of Dickinson, Texas that people recognize. He’s Tracie’s husband. He’s dad to his son. He’s a neighbor and friend to all. To these people, he is Justin.  

Justin Waggoner loves his wife, Tracie. You see it in the gentle way he speaks to her and in the loving glances he sneaks when he thinks no one is looking.  In the one time I have been around them, there is no hiding the love these two share, and that’s something special. My sister has always talked about how wonderful they are, and I’m so glad I got to see it with my own eyes. Their son is their pride and joy, the result of two amazing parents who work hard to raise a kind, loving, talented, smart and polite child. You know – the kind of kid that everyone wants to claim to have.

This family has had their share of ups and downs, but who hasn’t, right?

That’s where you’re wrong. While some of us have the occasional quarrel with our spouse, a fender bender that costs us a grand to fix or missing a few days of work to take our kids to the doctor, the Waggoner’s face something that not many of us have to.

Tracie was diagnosed with brain cancer, and understandably, they are devastated. They are a prayerful family who is putting their trust in the hands of the doctors who will treat this horrible disease, and their faith in God to work another of His miracles. The Waggoners are blessed with an abundance of family and friends who are standing by to do whatever they can to help them out. Home cooked meals, rides for their son, friendly visits to occupy their time or just a phone call to see if they need anything, there is no shortage of love for them.

Officer Waggoner’s co-workers have set up a fund to help with the rising medical costs for Tracie’s treatment, and within a few short hours, they raised over $5000. It’s a fantastic start, but they still have a ways to go. Anyone wishing to donate to help someone who has sacrificed so much to help all of us by serving our community can click on the link below. Any amount will help and please spread the word.

I wanted to share this link with anyone and everyone who will read this. Please consider donating, whatever you are able to, to help this amazing family. And prayers are always welcome and very much needed.
