If you are a regular visitor here, it is probably because you are reading my posts. But you do and should go and read some of the other comments that are written as well as look in the Reflections and Share your Story tabs. There was a boys story that was posted last night and shared. My heart ached. I did contact him. He shared some thoughts with me. In his post, he mentioned that he hadn’t talked to anyone about his thoughts and feelings. Since then, he has talked to him mom. There are other things to work out but I love how people are reaching out to one another in this blog. It is all about the positives and how we can help and support each other. I am also going to randomly share comments from my virtual friends. The warm fuzzies of the comments come to me as I read them on my phone each morning. The inspiration and love that comes with each message is wonderful. Especially on those darker mornings or days.
Speaking of darker, I don’t think I am alone in my feelings for what has happened in life. I have been in contact with many parents and relatives who have lost a child in a similar manner to my story. It’s is all so sad. I can’t keep all the names and faces straight anymore. I have notes everywhere. Even 3 notebooks going. Keeping it all in the computer just doesn’t work either.
I was part of a conference call this morning with an educator and some parents from New Brunswick. So cool to talk to parents at the other end of the Canada. Topic was bullying/cyberbullying, etc. Such a vast topic with many facets. Wish there was a simple answer. If you are a parent or a teacher reading this, what programs are your schools using. Would be interesting to know.
OK .. I had a workout today. Did I ever share with you that I really don’t like working out. It’s like that horrid vitamin stuff I used to have to take when I was a kid. It was good for you. So the same with fitness and exercise. It is good for me, that’s why I do it. But I moan, groan and complain through it (with laughter of course) and then moan, groan, complain about the aches for the next 3 days. Hmmm… I have another workout booked for Saturday.
Good news .. I put out that hoodies and t-shirts would be available really soon. It actually takes 3 weeks for them to print them. The response has been astounding. Just have to figure out how to collect the $$. I can’t believe that so many friends want the hoodies and t-shirts. And not everyone knows. I must say, they look good. In the pictures anways. Fingers crossed.
Bedtime for me!! Time sure flies when I’m trying to sort out a paper mess. One day soon, I will think of more Amanda stories to share. Like when at daycare she went temporarily missing. Because she had gone in the kitchen area at daycare and hid in the cupboards, not saying a peep (or giggling).
Or the time when she was five years old and she wanted to be goalie in soccer. Ummm… but Amanda … if the cold wet ball hits you in the face, it will hurt and you will cry. No mom, it’s okay. I won’t. And she did. Sigh!!!
Or the time when she wanted to feed the ducks at the pond but you weren’t supposed to. Hmmm… that’s where all the bread went. And I guess the ducks got puffier when the bread expanded. Yikes Amanda … stop.
I will think hard for more tidbits. I just have to look at the pictures. Deep thought .. .but the pics make me cry. So I will just have to think harder. I can do that.
Pictures of all 3 clothing items … hugz … xoxo
