There is no recipe today, except that of love and support for a great little guy named Caden Hope. My baby great nephew, at less than 1 1/2 years old, is undergoing open heart surgery today in Missouri.

This video slideshow is full of sweet pictures of him and his mom, an amazing young woman who deserves national mom-of-the-year award for her dedication and hard work, working two jobs to support them both while raising a happy, loving little boy and taking online classes.

And here’s a brief news clip explaining he was born with holes in his heart, and discussing the fundraisers in Missouri, a kickball tournament that was in October and a benefit account set up at Southwest Missouri Bank to accept donations.  The bank confirmed with me that mail-in donations can be accepted at the following address:

‎”Attention: Benefit of Caden Hope”
Southwest Missouri Bank
300 W. Third
Carthage, MO 64836

All my love and my heart is in a hospital in Missouri today with the most inspiring mom I’ve ever met, the sweetest little boy I wish I could visit more often, and all of their family.

Supporting a Heart for Hope, one virtual hug and prayer at a time.
