Conner is such a fun big brother! Zander loves to climb up on Conner's shoulders and see the world. It is fun to watch them both grow up.

I miss you Jaydee!
I find an old photograph
and see your smile.
As I feel your presence anew,
I am filled with warmth
and my heart remembers love.
I read an old card
sent many years ago
during a time of turmoil and confusion.
The soothing words written then
still caress my spirit
and bring me peace.
I remember who you used to be
the laughter we shared
and wonder what you have become.
Where are you now,
Where did you go,
When the body is left behind
and the spirit is released to fly?
Perhaps you are the morning bird
singing joyfully at sunrise,
or the butterfly that dances
so carelessly on the breeze
or the rainbow of colors
that brightens a stormy sky
or the fingers of afternoon mist
delicately reaching over the mountains
or the final few rays of the setting sun
lighting up the skies
edging the clouds with a magical glow.
I miss your being
but I feel your presence,
In whatever form you choose to take,
however you now choose to be.
Your spirit has become for me
a guardian angel on high
guiding, advising, and watching over me.
I remember you.
You are with me
and I am not afraid.

The not-so-perfect part of my day was taking Conner to the doctor. Turns out he had severe strep throat. I felt so bad for him. He was in such terrible pain with his throat and so many aches, pains and a fever. We spent most of the morning at the doctor's office and the pharmacy. Doctor Freestone gave Conner a bright pink rose to give me. It is beautiful! Conner is feeling much better!

His speech is incredible.... and I am not just saying that! He keeps winning!!
His next speech is on May 30th. I will be out of town and unable to attend. So, if anyone is feeling like spending a day listening to some great speeches.... go cheer him on!
I was just so happy and proud of him, I couldn't help but smile big!

I know a bunch of your are runners, and even if you aren't, you should still come run with us. Everyone in our house is participating in the Hemophilia Blood Run. The race will be Saturday, June 6th in Highland. A few of us are running the 5K and some of us are running the 1 mile. ALL of us are helping with the race on the day. We are looking for runners, volunteer's, and even donations (see my site).
Anyone who helps out the day of the race, either by racing, donating, or volunteering..... we will be having a YUMMY breakfast at our house following the race. You don't want to miss it!! Niel is an excellent cook!!
