D-Blog Week - Day 6 / Wild Card!

DBlogWeek2011Banner

Ok - I blame Blogger for the wild card today.  Curse you, Blogger for being down so long and totally screwing with D-Blog Week!

Saturday's post is titled 'Snapshot' --- helllloooo --- I love snapshots.  And I'm always taking D pics.  But because Blogger was down I had to write Friday's post on Friday during the time I should have been working on Saturday's post so now it is late Friday night and I have to get out Saturday's post tonight because tomorrow I'm walking for Super Sweet Sophie!

Got it?

Ok - so, I'm pulling the 'step outside the box' wildcard today.

I love to write and I love to take pictures ---- I love to share both with you here on my blog.  What I am not crazy about is posting VLOGs.  I am not a fan of hearing my own voice or looking at the funny faces that I make when I am talking.  So, this video I am about to post here for you is way out of my comfort zone.

A while back a friend asked me to make a video about Nate's diagnosis and hoping for a cure.  It was to be used for a project in another state so I felt like I could handle making it since no one there would know me.  :)

So, here it is . . . ugly cry face and all.




And don't forget even though it is D-Blog week and I just posted a VLOG about Nate - - - we are still raising money for Super Sweet Sophie.  Please click here if you would like to make a donation to CCFA on behalf my little Sweetie. We are walking today (Saturday) --- festivities start at 4p. For details on the walk --- please click here

Aw, my dear Laura. I remember when Caleb was diagnosed and how much crying I did and how I could not remember the last time I cried before that because it seemed like I never did. I've been back to that point - not knowing the last time I cried - for a while. Nevertheless, if someone asks me to talk about Caleb's diagnosis, I think I'll be able to talk about it fine and matter of factly, but I always, always, always, quiver and choke up when I get to that hard reality part. Dang it.

Love ya Laura. Tears and all.

Way to step out of the box!
Reading dx stories is powerful, but when you hear and see them being told, it takes it to a whole other level.

awww...Laura. I'm glad you shared, it's tough.
On the bright side I just showed Isaac a few pics of Nate and now he wants to know when they can have a playdate. He thinks it's super cool that Nate can swim, too!
Hope today is going well for your walk. Take care:)
