A Dream is a Wish your Heart Makes...

"A dream is a wish your heart makes
when your fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep
Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling thru
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believeing
the dream that you wish for will come true"....good old Disney's Cinderella song!

I am extremely emotional, so blessed that so many people have jumped on board to help Taylor, Mindy and Landon. So many people who are helping, reaching out don't even know Taylor, Mindy or Landon that the kindness of strangers is a gift we get to witness yet again. I honestly know that every time we hit this low, I put out a "help" signal and am left baffled by the strength of response that we get! Every time it gets bigger, more passionate, more people!

I can never express the emotions we are all going through. Although things are horrible it is...has been, so important to have all this energy, love, kindness come bursting through so that we regain HOPE, refocus, get up off the ground and brush off our knees so we can begin again. For some crazy reason (well I know what you all are thinking, but I'm not saying anything! LOL) ALL OF YOU show up when we need you the most, for that I am thankful.

Today is Taylor's MRI (already occured) and we get the results Thursday...funny how the day before this awful day we were blessed by this huge outpouring of support! I really, really want to thank everyone and when I stop spinning I will, so if I miss you I will try and remember....

To my cousin Lisa who has been a whirlwind of activity in getting this all going...I am so stunned with ALL that you have done and do!

To Cousin Kristen for supporting us in comments, Lisa's tech support I am thinking.LOL trying to be creative in ways to contribute...

To Barb Scully, yup you cause you started this all in the beginning and are back again!

To my lovely friend Shaundell who is going to have to tell me what she is up to, but is certainly up to something.LOL

To Trinidy for trying to see if someone would air our story on the radio (keep your fingers crossed)

To Melanie Shockey for her Barrett fundraiser (remember please contact to purchase some barretts or if you can sell them at your business, work or school)

To Natasha (Taylor's Dayhome, AMAZING caregiver) for preparing a Dance Party(more to come on this as she would like it to be an additional fundraiser) for Taylor, loving Taylor, doing all those amazing little things that mean so much!

My friend Paula who is collecting donations at her Church as well as organizing or trying to promote fundraisers at the Snow Mobile shows!

To Snowand Mud.com and all their followers who have offered suppot! The Snow Mobile shows in Edmonton (this weekend), Calgary and Saskatoon will all be collecting donations!

Again there are sooooo many more of you, but I will do this as much as I can so that everyone knows all our special helpers!
