Starting 2009 with a message of encouragement.




Hello everyone


We had a major blizzard on New Year's Day that took all day yesterday to dig out from. Today it is bright and sunny with a temperature of about 30F.


I just received an e-mail from Garrett's mom that I wanted to share with you.


Hi Gary,


Just wanted to let you know that Garrett has e-mailed Kyle. I have been in contact with Darlene and hope that I can offer her some encouragement and support. I know that just writing about our experience to someone who understands is helpful to me. I hope I can help her as well.


Garrett has had other opportunities to speak with stroke survivors over the past three years, but Kyle is the first that he has chosen to respond to. I think they can help each other, certainly no one else can understand what they have been (and are going) through. I believe there are reasons for everything in this world. I'm glad I came across his story, happy that Kyle reached out to Garrett and Garrett responded.


Let's hope that 2009 will be a good year for all!

I did check at the Jay Room just now but I didn't find any posts by mamma Jay since my last blog post here.


I just simply felt so encouraged by Eileen's e-mail that I needed to share it with all of you.


Wishing every one only great things in 2009.


Smiles :)
