Team Elise video

When Fred and I set out to make our walk video, I asked myself, "what do I want our message to be?" I thought about it a long time, and it wasn't until I was listening to my Ipod and the song "Beautiful World" by Collective Soul came on, that it hit me.

Hope.

I want people to see the hope that we have. For Elise's (and everyone with D) future, for her life, and for a cure. Without that hope, I just don't know how I'd be able to get out of bed in the morning.

Here are the lyrics:

In the morning
Hope is whispering to me quietly
Some confusion
Seems to reign continuously over me
Though I walk through the valley
No more shadows will cover me
Now you've opened my eyes
It's a beautiful world
When I've got you here to hold
It's a beautiful world
Where all Heaven's light is shone
It's a beautiful world
When I've got you here to hold
It's a beautiful world
When I just let love take control
In the evening
Faith is watching over me, I believe
As I'm lying
In arms of security I can see
All the ways you have given
In my hour of blinding need
Now you've opened my eyes
It's a beautiful world
When I've got you here to hold
It's a beautiful world
Where all Heaven's light is shone
It's a beautiful world
When I've got you here to hold
It's a beautiful world
When I just let love take control
The only way to hope is through tears
The only way to faith is through fear
The only way to love is when you kneel
Now you've opened my eyes
It's a beautiful world
When I've got you here to hold
It's a beautiful world
Where all Heaven's light is shone
It's a beautiful world
When I've got you here to hold
It's a beautiful world
When I just let love take control


Amen.

So, without further ado, here's our video.

  6. What a great job you did on your video! Elise is so precious, and I can't give you enough credit for dealing with diabetes in a baby/toddler.....whew. I wish you all the best for Team Elise; the Arizona crowd is walking on 10/31 and hoping for great success, too. Going to find Kleenex now. ;)
