When my colleague forwarded me an email about a 4 year old boy, Alan, and his wish to visit the tallest building in San Antonio as he was battling a deadly cancer, I thought, “we have to go.” I didn’t know his situation, I just knew that this was a rush wish through the Make A Wish Foundation and that he wanted to visit the Weston Centre, a special building for many Rackers (where I use to work). Click here to read more about the Weston Centre in a previous blog post.
So we went and were assigned the 2nd floor, banners and balloons in hand. We thought he was going to each floor chronologically but he wanted to skip around, just to make it interesting for us. We waited and waited, and I was so nervous because I wanted to cheer him on yet, I knew that it wasn’t go to be easy. He finally landed on our floor and we startled him with our loud cheer. Such a beautiful child and his family were all right there standing behind him, supporting him. Check out this video Racker Dave Sims produced:
I am glad I went. I pray that the family receives the strength to endure the difficult road ahead. I also want to thank Alan for being brave and for showing all of us what life is about. We can’t control what God has planned for us. We do, however, have control over how we live it and we should live each day without regret.
Later that day, I saw this rainbow right over the Weston Centre, just for little Alan.
