Life goes on

by holleigh Fri, May 14 2010 13:15

Life goes on. In some small way, we hope it might stop after losing a child. But the sun continues to rise and set, other children continue to grow and prosper, and the circle of life continues. Keeping busy in a Godsend in many ways. It enables us to move forward with the flow of life. We learn to embrace the sadness, and the constant missing becomes an integral part of who we are. Yet somehow in the midst of it all, we catch ourselves smiling again.

So many beautiful moments catch us by surprise; a shared memory of our child, a discovered note he or she once created, a card from someone just letting us know they remember. These little things mean the world to us now. We have been blessed with so many of these moments; and so has the Foundation.

We give special thanks and recognition to those who continue to raise money and awareness of our mission; on their own accord, and in loving memory of Jaiden. Since our inception, we have had people request that their friends and families donate to Jaiden’s Angel in lieu of gifts for weddings (Special thanks to Scott & Janine Bilodeau), birthdays, and in Memory of Loved ones. We have also had groups run fundraising efforts on our behalf; such as the Milford Middle School 7th Grade Quilt Club, who have presented a sizable check to the Foundation 2 years in a row (totaling over $1500), and St. John Neumann Catholic Community in Merrimack, NH; whose students hosted a Penguin Walk that raised over $1000 this past winter.

These incredible people have been touched by Jaiden’s life, and this is the most meaningful gift there is. Thank you for your continued support:

Thank you to our neighbors, Kim & Kenny Calden and their friend Sherrill Erickson; Sherrill hosted a sippy cup tournament that raised $300.

Thank you to Christopher & Pamela Robinson, who hosted a Pampered Chef Holiday party that raised nearly $200.

Article directories are  internet sites that house spare articles. These articles are  commonly  positioned there by whoever has the copyright to them as a promotion method. Each  article has the owners byline put under it so that those who eventually read the article will know who wrote it or at least who owns it and will be able to get in reach with or visit their  internet site for further information.Articles directories are a  important place to place your articles so that they will make you money. By using this method, people who are interested in your product or service will  visit  your article,  look at you as an expert in the case  , and will see your website. Even if you cannot write or do not have any knowledge on the subject on conncted to which you are promoting  for example for you run an affiliate website, you can always employ a writer to do the work for you. having  superior   articles written will be  pricey up front, but they will pay for themselves in no time, either through affiliate sales or selling  your own services, and everything from then on is pure benefit.To be continue...
