The Search for Cash

The awesomeness that is Matthew:

Yesterday we received a knock on the door. It was a lady passing out flyers for her missing dog "Cash." He had been missing over 2 weeks and they really wanted to find him. 

Matthew had been standing in the hallways listening to this lady's plea for help. When she finished he pumped his fist into the air and said "a mission!!! This is a job for MATTHEW!!" 

I smiled at his enthusiasm. We then decided to make it a family mission. 

We all piled into the car and drove around town, having Matthew lead the way. He rolled down his window and yelled for Cash. 

When we got back from driving around town he grabbed a friend and they walked around the neighborhood to look some more.

Unfortunately he never did find the dog.

Upon further inspection of the flyer we saw that there was a $200 reward for the safe return of the dog. 
Matt asked Matthew what he would do with all that money. His response: "I would give it to you." 

He knows that things have been tough financially. 

But seeing him so excited to help someone he had never even met before makes me proud beyond words.
