We went to the Light the Night captain’s meeting tonight with Daniel, Tammy and Cassie. I was excited about it. I feel like I’m doing something worth while for a change. But as the meeting went on, I felt my emotions coming up. I managed pretty well until a mother was there with her son, her son who was diagnosed in Dec 07 & is a sophomore now @ community college. Joe is the Hero for Hope in this walk. It is what I always imagined for Andrew & us, that he would be a spokes person at a walk. As Joe stood up there and talked about how the dr’s, the nurses, the people at ACH & his Mom were the real heroes, I just wanted it to be Andrew, Martin and I up there talking. I visualized that all the time while I was in the hospital. I FELT it! I just KNEW it! And yet it was never to be. :-(
As I tried to quietly hide my tears & gently wipe them away, Martin put his arm around me and Daniel took Mucker, turned him toward me, and had him do a thumbs up, well as much as a dinosaur can do with fewer digits. :-D Well, it worked! I started to LMAO. Nice one Daniel.
I have a feeling there will be a lot of tears shed along the way during this Light The Night Walk fundraiser. BUT…..
IT’S ALL GOOD!
