Today I saw the most touching expression of support that a town of just over 1100 people could show toward one woman.
We went to Holland, TX for their annual corn festival, but this year had a theme like no other theme I have ever seen before.
After the military marching band and traditional corn queen float passed, I was surprised by a group of bikers swathed in pink. I thought it was unique, but didn't let it weigh too heavy on my mind.
Then came this group of ladies in pink sporting Team Brandi t-shirts.
But the most unique part of the parade was this...Do you believe this?
or this?I then decided I better ask the Team Brandi woman that was standing next to me with a video camera about Brandi.
It was then that I learned about Brandi Shelton who was going through her third bout of cancer which this time has spread to her bones. The entire town decided to dedicate the festival to her. She even got to ride on the pink fire truck. Unfortunately, I didn't know this until the truck was too far past for photos.
I was blessed by the outpouring of love and support that this little town was able to muster for one person. Her story brought me to tears, something that doesn't usually happen at a corn festival.
Anyway, the rest of the festival was its usual heat filled fun time. I will do a separate post about it with more pictures tomorrow.
