We Can’t Wait to Walk for SickKids again!

A memory quilt made with love

On Christmas morning, I had expected very little in the way of surprises.  I mean, after 13 years of marriage, we usually buy the gifts with each other and then wrap them for December 25th.  What happened after all the other gifts were opened, was beyond my wildest dreams.  Paul had commissioned an amazingly talented woman, […] Read more…

I’m a NEW organ donor…are you?

Post by Sarah Taylor. So this morning, my dear friend Sarah had a post on her Facebook wall (open comments above).  A post that I see her write regularly about the importance of being a donor.  A topic that is close to her heart (and lungs) and the reason she could marry her love, Keith, […] Read more…

Finding Christmas magic

I never want to forget the signs around me.  It’s when I need them most and when I ask Zack for them, that they have been revealed to me.  I write them here to preserve my memory, to share with all of you who may need to believe that signs exist, and to make it […] Read more…
