Hello, folks. 

Last week we were honored to travel to Springfield, Illinois, our state capital, and testify on behalf of the Illinois Childhood Cancer Research Fund.  I held a set of Donna's photos in my hand the whole time and they brought me much strength.

If you are interested in the event, how it happened, and the testimony (including photos), please visit my Mary Tyler Mom blog and read all about it.  Hot off the presses, as they say.  Here is the link:


Lots more has happened.  Jay continues to grow and thrive.  Thank goodness for his presence in our lives. 

Mother's Day is around the corner, and that is never an easy day for me.  Hasn't been since my Mom was diagnosed with her tumor just before Mother's Day in 2004.  We will be together, and that is better than anything.

Still choosing hope and now working to create some, too.  All my love, Sheila.
