What an amazing God...what an amazing 8 days at Warrenton!!! At the top of the list is that Witt and Mel were there for the entire show(except for part of the day Monday) and Austan joined them for the weekends. Melanie and Austan both jumped back in at the cafe with Melanie making plates and Austan grilling. God's blessings on my family certainly flowed and one of them was from Rachel Ashwell.
Rachel Ashwell(Shabby Chic) was on our property doing a book signing in the Junk Gypsy tent. She took time out to come inside and meet Witt. I told her all about Witt, explained his equipment and mentioned that we were wanting to raise money to buy a van or car that Witt's cart and equipment could just roll into. Later that day Melanie was presented with a book that Rachel had signed for both of us. It read:
To Witt's Nana and Mama, Your story touched my heart. You are a beautiful,
strong little soul, surrounded by love that you so deserve. Please accept this
token towards the vehicle that will help show you the world.
From my heart,
Rachel Ashwell

Attached to the page with a poem entitled "Mother" was very generous check!!! Thank you, Rachel! Thank You, Lord!! Just having Witt out there was blessing enough but surely my cup is overflowing!!!!

One evening I walked in and Melanie was reading to Witt. He
loves the books that he can touch and feel!

That is amazing and so like our God! I am so glad that they were able to be at the show. I just talked to mom and dad and they said they had a great time and loved being able to work and be with Mel and Austan and of course see Witt. Love you guys.
