Mamaws Bedroom

I am sleeping at my mamaws house tonight. I'm in her bed and it's 3:30 am. I can't sleep. I have a migraine and so many thoughts are racing through my head. I can't remember the last time I slept in this bed but it's been years. I used to spend the night with my Mamaw on a regular basis when I was little, we all did. My childhood is this house with my Mamaw. As I lay here, I can't help but think of the countless hours that we didn't sleep because I always asker her to tell me a story. She would tell me stories of when she was growing up and when she was a child. I always looked forward to hearing her stories. 
My favorite story that she told me was when she got stuck in a briar patch on her way home. I don't know why that was my favorite story but it's the one I remember the most. So many memories laying in this exact spot. My side. 
I love you Mamaw.

My name is Katie, I'm 24 and I have Cystic Fibrosis. My husband who also suffers from CF received his life-saving double lung transplant in November (go to our facebook page to read more about us). I am starting a new project in hopes of bringing some smiles to children that have been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis or other diseases all around the US one page at a time! My project is called #Color4Kids. 

How it works: You (the parent or guardian) private message me your address and your child's name and age on facebook or through email. In turn, I will color them a picture and send it to them in the mail with a tiny message of hope and love. Something as simple as coloring a picture and a few words of encouragement can make someone's day just a little bit better. When your child receives their picture, please post it on facebook, Instagram, or any other social media with the hashtag #Color4Kids. It would be awesome if you took a picture of your child holding their picture but understand if you would like to keep your childs face off of the Internet. 

If you have a child who is battling any kind of illmess, please message me! I don't share personal information with anyone and if there are healthy siblings in the house be sure to include their names and ages as well!
