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 May of 2005. We took Mattie to Brookside Garden in Maryland and what he was looking at were fish in the fountain. Mattie found this very intriguing and if he could have jumped in with the fish he would have!

This was the scene in our home today. Peter hurt his back last weekend moving hurdles and other heavy objects while setting up for the Walk. I think all our intense work yesterday with organizing, wrapping and putting things in storage from the Walk did not help Peter's situation. So he is having forced rest today and Doctor Sunny is on the scene to supervise the patient.  

Meanwhile, my friend asked me to help her display around 100 cupcakes at her son's school party next week. So I have been on the Internet getting crafty ideas. We went to the craft store and bought lots of items today. This photo is a sample. Now we have to build and decorate the towers. When the two towers are complete, I will post photos!
