Its been a while since I've blogged. I don't know about my fellow bloggers, but sometimes I have so much going on, and so much to blog about that I get kind of a "traffic jam" in my head when I try to get on and write.
I think of a thousand things I want to write about, ponder about, celebrate, and then I get overwhelmed with it when I try to sort it all out.
At any rate, I have been very busy, but have always stopped by to see how everyone is doing. So much has happened in my little cyberworld and I have checked in on all of you as you have celebrated birthdays, and birth days, and first days of Little League, and dance classes, and all of the wonderful things that remind us of how very blessed we are.
And I have prayed for those of you who have little ones who are sick, or who have had surgery, or are just having a rough spot.
Everything that has kept me busy has been very good things, that have also kept me very happy. This week, we will be winding down our Livee's Loonies project, as Miss Olivia celebrates her third birthday on Thursday.
It has been such an amazing campaign to be a part of - I have felt so inspired and so very, very blessed as we have worked on this, and every day seems to bring yet another reason to live joyfully - I've met many new people, and had the opportunity to hear many new life stories, and, of course, I have fallen hopelessly, madly in love with Livee herself.
We have made a short presentation that celebrates Olivia life, and have distributed more than 100 copies of it. Two weeks ago, this was a "one time" presentation to one group, and it has grown incredibly since then.
I am trying to convert it so anyone can watch it on youtube, but I just need to find the time to do that!
The money Olivia's family hoped to raise for CHEO will be close to ten times their original goal. I am so proud of them, and will shed tears of pride and happiness as I watch their family deliver their check on the telethon.
And in the midst of that, Little League has started for us. As Wayne and I are the primary organizers for 12 teams, it is a lot of behind the scenes work getting everything ready for everyone to play. No matter how early we start, it just creeps up on us, and suddenly, there it is.
We had a great weekend for the kids to play, and it was a lot of fun to see some of them back again. We are looking forward to a very good season - there is nothing more heartwarming than seeing a group of 5-year-olds scrambling for the ball, or running the bases the wrong way, or tagging out their own team member, lol.
Tuesday night I am taking a Facilitator's Training Course so that I can go into various schools next year and teach about Inclusion - both for children with special needs, and for other minorities. I am very excited about it, and hope this will lead me further on my journey to my destiny! :)
A very dear person gave me a copy of The Secret this week, and I am trying to devour the book - she was very sweet and flattering, and told me that after reading it, she believes I am living The Secret and don't even know it.
Of course, I took a few days to begin it as one very big, very sweet, very drooly puppy decided my reading glasses would make for great entertainment one day and chewed them into pieces. Argh!! Its one of the only fatalities we've had with him, and he is so cute with that big head of his and those old grandpa droopy eyes, that I quickly forgave him.
So...that's what's been keeping me so busy!!!
And now...I've been tagged as well!!
