I have been alone at home since last night . I like being alone . At least for a day . It gives me a chance to put my thoughts in perspective , to face reality and the finality of it all. Wanna see?

I cleaned the garage some and I can actually put my van in now!!! LOL ...

I found a few treasures out there ...Wanna see?

Then I went outside a few minutes and had a conversation with the sun!! Tried to reach it but humm ...didnt work !!! Wanna see?

Now I am sitting here , listen to the most amazing music :

"I will never let you fall, I'll stand up with you forever ,

I'll be there for you thru it all, even if saving you sends me to Heaven..."( your guardian angel)

We have received quite a few envelopes marked CJ and some Paypal donations!!!!! YAY FOR YOU GUYS , you are all awesome...for those who feel like they miss something go back to MAY 14th

Seems like I had more BUT I cant remember , it is tooooo early!!! LOL

One more thing ....(or two...) (or three)

I am still working on the video, i will have the list for you to check and make sure I have your child on it tomorrow.... if again you dont know what i am talking about check on April 23rd.

Now, you all know Haley , right ?She just started aa art projects, here are her words:

"I also have some more exciting news! I will be starting an ART PROJECT to make some money for childhood cancer. The plan right now is to create portraits of children who are fighting or have fought cancer, and have the background be their favorite color. I will either be auctioning them off on e-bay or on my friend Michelle’s blog. 50% of the proceeds will go to benefit the new organization that Michelle, Mimi, and I are all a part of called ”4 the kids”, the other 50% will be for more art supplies to make more art… not for profit.The artwork will be similar to these, though obviously of kids, not my friend Britni, and with more kid-friendly touches.
The name of the child or a word/saying of the family’s choosing will also be included in the art work. The back will include a copy of the child’s story. The family will receive a copy of the art work. If you are interested in having your child be a STAR (haha) in one of my pieces of artwork, contact me via email at, make sure the email subject is “Childhood Cancer Art”. I am really excited about getting this rolling, I think it will be a lot of fun, so spread the word! "(cp HALEYWORLD)

Finally ...About raising money for families with cancer kids:"Wanna own a part of Julian's world ?"

Mimi, The pic of you "touching the sun" is awesome. Did you notice in the clouds to your right that Julian was "reaching" back to you. I distinctly see his fingers reaching back. This should be put on a card or something special....Just my thoughts.

Love ya,

Wow. Did you know that I was actually going to send you the name of that song? I thought that it really relates to you and Julian. That is my favorite song. Are you going to sell more of Ju's stuff. Wish I could buy some... Be a part of Juju's World. If you go to this

you'll see that there is always a candle buring in our hearts f or Ju.

I just watched your tree planting ceremony on the CP, and OMG, I'm sitting her bawling. I've mentioned before I shated Juju's b-day, although we were 33 yrs apart. It was beautiful and thank you so much for sharing it.
I say to hell with the people who say its a choice to visit the 3rd floor, or keep the CP...
You do what you have to do to get through the days, and God bless you:))

I LOVE that picture of you reaching for the sun.

I've been following your blog on carepages for awhile now-found you through Dawn's blog-and but I've never left you a comment until now.

I really admire you. It probably seems like a weird comment from someone who doesn't know you, but I get a good feel for you through your writing. I'm sure you don't always feel strong...but the grace with which you've handled the circumstances thrown you is really...I don't know if I can even encapsulate it into one word....inspirational, awesome, admirable, thought-provoking. The fact that you are working hard, continuing the fight against cancer, when you could just curl up in the fetal position and retreat to a place in your head says a lot about you as a person.

I recite your words about hugging your kids and cherishing them in my head whenever I feel myself losing patience with my kids. I watch them when they sleep and replay all the wonderful moments-it helps take the stress of the day away. I'm kind of rambling here, and I apologize for it. I basically just wanted to say thanks for sharing your story on CarePages. You've touched my life.
