Thank you for keeping Mattie's memory alive!

Dear Mattie Blog Readers,

It means a great deal to us that you take the time to write to us and to share your thoughts, feelings, and reflections on Mattie's battle and death. Your messages are very meaningful to us and help support us through very challenging times. To you we are forever grateful. As my readers know, I promised to write the blog for a year after Mattie's death, which would mean that I could technically stop writing on September 9, 2010. However, at the moment, I feel like our journey with grief still needs to be processed and fortunately I have a willing support network still committed to reading. Therefore, the blog continues on. If I should find the need to stop writing, I assure you I will give you advanced notice. In the mean time, thank you for reading, thank you for having the courage to share this journey with us, and most importantly thank you for keeping Mattie's memory alive.

As Mattie would say, Ooga Booga (meaning, I LOVE YOU)! Vicki and Peter

Tonight's picture was taken in April of 2003. This was at Mattie's first birthday. We decorated with an ELMO theme and as you can see, Mattie was transfixed on the cake. In fact if I were to have let Mattie loose, his hand or foot would have gotten right into the cake. Mattie was on, engaged, and always very alert.

On this president's day, Peter is actually home from work. In the past, his company never gave him any National holidays off. I am glad that has changed this year. Indie and Sunny enjoyed having both of us home today. Because it was in the 60's, we have all the windows open and put our screen on our front door. Indie was in heaven. She hopped up on the counter to check out the window and went in and out of the screen door all day!
Meanwhile look what is blooming in Mattie's memorial garden. It is a welcomed sight and reminds me that soon spring will be here.
