April has become my quiet month, my Georgie month. I gave myself permission this year to just be. This meant doing a little bit less than usual but it also gave me time to reflect and find calm. Along the way I was interviewed for the Children's Hospital Radiothon airing today, as well as for a piece in the Children's Hospital Annual Report. I had several messages on Saturday from people telling me that they were greeted in the morning by Georgie's beautiful face. The fact that so many of you are quick to recognize her is an amazing feeling. It reminds me that I must be doing something right. My daughter is not forgotten.
May arrived with a dumping of snow but we were also able to attend a memorial at the hospital in memory of all of the young lives lost. We didn't make it last year but were so grateful that Georgie was included again this year. We had a chance to meet some other families and the girls came home with a bunch of flowers and balloons.
Now that we are well into May my quiet month is over. It is time to move forward. May is a big month in our family this year. Aria will be turning 1 on the 22nd. Mike and I are thrilled to be celebrating such a milestone with our little girl. A party is being planned. : )
Love to you all,
