In my last post I didn't thank all of you for visiting Georgia's grave. I know that there were quite a lot of you that went and that continue going. I think that it's fabulous that you feel connected to our sweet little girl. Kim, please tell Jesse that I absolutely love his flower in the ziploc bag and with his permission would like to keep the rock so that some of Georgia's other little friends may leave her pictures too. What a brilliant idea!
I have many more thank yous today. Thank you to Peggy Glassco, owner and head coach of Gymkyds for the fundraiser for Children's Hospital in Georgia's memory. Thank you to my mom who is having the SMA petition site posted in her church bulletin and hopefully the Great West Life newsletter. Thank you to my dear friend Krista for spreading the message to hundreds of nurses here in Canada and thousands in the U.S. Thank you to Dr. Darrin for allowing us to post something in his office and his own ideas for fundraising in Georgia's name.
My next plan includes hitting the pavement. There's nothing like old fashioned footwork (pretty sure that's how Erin Brokovich worked). I am going to start going door to door, introducing myself and simply asking them to sign the petition. I'm going to take it slow but plan on hitting most of Island Lakes in time. In my opinion, the petition is not being signed fast enough. Door to door may seem slower but I believe it hits home when you have to look a grieving mother in the eyes. The same mother that takes her children to the local park and goes for walks around the neighborhood. How do you say no?
Thank you to all of you that continue to leave messages or email privately. I hadn't listened to Georgia (the song) in a long time and just listened to it 3 times as I've been sitting here writing. It's very soothing.
Love to you all,
