Please take a moment today, to think about the beautiful Maddie, and send positive thoughts to her wonderful parents - Heather and Mike. They, and many many others, are remembering Maddie today at 2:30pm. Remember that life is so precious. Cherish every moment.
I'm wearing purple today, in honor of this butterfly that touched so many lives forever. I can't stop thinking about some of the words from one of my kids' favorite books, On the Night You Were Born. "If ever you doubt just how special you are, or wonder who loves you, how much and how far, listen to geese honking high in the sky - they're singing a song to remember you by. Or look at the bears asleep at the zoo, it's because they've been dancing all night for you. For never before, in story or rhyme, has the world ever known a you, my friend. And it never will, not ever again."
