Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t really know what you’ve got til its gonePosted by Lynette on May 21, 2012 at 8:25pm
Just weeks ago I was a whirlwind of energy, excited about the possibility of having a large art space to create and looking to the start of wedding season and helping Soul through this growth spurt. Yesterday I really didn’t know if I could face another day of the pain and lack of sleep, but today my lovely Lulu spent a lot of time on the phone with my nurse and tonight I am headache free and ready to try a little outing or 2 tomorrow. I am uplifted constantly by loving hands and caring hearts. I am so hopeful of regaining my spunk, may take a while but determined to move forward. Have some great ideas for more warrior costumes, just delayed until I find some strength.
I think the photos I shot at SC with Megan last week will be ready tomorrow and am excited to see them made into gifts as there was such beautiful light falling on the lovely family. I am personally banned from Seattle Children’s for about 6 months since my immune system will be compromised by the chemo. I trust that our photographers will have my back during this time. I know we had 4 other shoots this weekend. So we are anxious to see those also.
I know Lu is working on the annual Holy Names work party for the end of the month. We are still hoping to do a little courtyard party with pink hair color and some head shaving. Just need to get the timing right. Will keep you posted on that, thinking of superheros and popcorn and good old fun.
Jenni, Brandi and the staff of the office are gathering forces to write a grant to the Moyer Foundation, Nick Parker will also be helping Megan pull this together. We are hopeful of consideration by this wonderful organization. I believe that Sawyer Coleman will be also working on the financials for this effort, we certainly have a talented group working on this. If you know of other possible grant opportunities please let us know.
Huge raves for the thoughtful emails, gifts, cards and support. Sharing tonight two beautiful little girls, Austyn by Kelly and Maya by Charlie. In love, peace and gratitude, Lynette
