Kennedy made a surprise visit to the Peterborough Canadian Cancer Society today to drop off this year's proceeds to the Pedal for Hope Team. A special thank you to X-Design Inc. this year for the wonderful donation.
A few days from christmas and all through our house,
Are pieces of plastic canvas smaller than a mouse.
Our stockings are hung on the staircase with care,
With Wind Wish's ornaments sparkling there.
Kennedy is nestled all snug in her bed,
While visions of icicles dance in her head.
Her sister is sleeping wearing her cap,
Dad and the puppy settle down for a nap.
When all I can think of is how thankful we are,
For all the support from near and a far.
It all started with our daughter's dream,
Yet so many others are now on her Wind Wishes team.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow,
Is just one thing we take for granted as we all grow.
All of our children should have the chance to see,
Every sunrise and sunset to eternity.
For all children fighting cancer and feeling sick,
We wish for you good health and the spirit of St. Nick.
May new research and love bring a cure for your cancer.
May Wind Wishes help them find the right answer.
As we come to the end of this year's campaign,
Know that your wishes are never in vain.
Wishes will allow your dreams to take flight.
"Happy Christmas to all, and to all a good-night!
I can not say enough how great Kennedy's school community has been over the past three years in supporting her Wind Wishes. Friday during one single recess Kennedy (with the help of two classmates) was able to sell 111 more ornaments, bringing her past the 500 ornament mark and well on her way to reaching her goal this year.
Thank you so much everyone for your continued support!
Stuff my parents think is important to share with you.
