Rewarding

It’s been about 6 months since I’ve written a blog.  My life has been consumed with fundraising and planning our first two major charity events, here in South Carolina.  Those events have recently concluded, and now I find myself with a little more time for my personal life, which includes spending more time with my other two grandchildren.

The Holiday Season

This is the second holiday season without our dear Caiden.  I find myself very weepy during this season when everyone is supposed to be joyous and celebratory.  I suppose it’s the same for everyone who has lost a loved one, but it’s very personal to me.  Christmas is extra special when there are little children to share the excitement of the

Football (or is it baseball?)

The Autumn season brings back fond memories of Friday night football games.  During the Fall of 2013, we took Caiden to as many high school football games as we could.  He had such a blast at these games!  He was a big fan….waving pom-pons and clapping for his team.

Sharing my Story

I have always been an introverted, private person.  I am tortured at the thought of talking in front of people.  Speaking to a group of people makes me very nervous and makes my body shake in fear.

In June, 2015, we were blessed
