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 December of 2007. It was the photo I featured on our Christmas cards that year. Today, our Facebook friend, Tim, transformed the photo into this lovely Christmas ornament. An absolutely charming Christmas memento. The beauty of all of this is we do not give the photos to Tim, he finds them on our blog and then surprises us with these electronic gifts.

It was a full day of Foundation work today. Not unlike most of our weekends. If you look closely you can see Indie trying to participate! Just to get our mass mailing out next week, we have been working on components of this campaign for two months now. Everything from ordering special Mattie Miracle gifts for donors to colorful envelopes. The whole thing is a process that can't be put together in a matter of days.
While I have been working on updating our mailing database, Peter has been doing assembly. Which is a hard and laborious task. 

I appreciate all the help though, as I am now in day 7 of an intense migraine. I don't know a day without a headache, as I have had one daily for 16 years. But when the intensity of pain in constant for days, I always wonder..... will it always be like this?
