Thank you to all of you that helped us to celebrate yesterday. To those of you that had private celebrations because of illness and distance, and those of you that brought food and drink, and those of you that pushed past those levels of discomfort and fear, and those of you that laughed with us, cried with us and just sat with us we are forever grateful. Georgia came downstairs twice during the party and had Happy Birthday sung both times. I could tell that she felt a little bit overwhelmed but I'm also sure that she felt special. A very big Thank You goes out to Sweet Impressions Bakery for coming in on their day off to bake some special cupcakes for a special little girl!
Today is much quieter. We brought her downstairs for a couple of hours and played with her. She was perfectly content with all of her party balloons! Now she is sleeping which is good because the photographer is coming around 3:30. Grandpa Bob is also arriving this evening from Calgary.
The food has also started arriving. A big thank you to all of our friends at Ecole Guyot for your contributions. For lunch today we ate some delicious broccoli salad. I will never have the time to write individual thank yous so I am hoping that you can feel how grateful we are through our messages. There are so many of you still wanting to help. I am pretty sure that we will still love to have ready made meals in a couple of weeks so please sit tight. Besides that there isn't a lot that can be done for our family except for love and prayers. I ask you to keep asking yourself how you can help others. There are many, many others.
