    Sometimes we do find something that makes our own issues seems small, but it doesn’t help you when you are living the moment. Reach out to friends when you need to. That is what they are there for. You would be surprised how many are also having tough years (me included). Sometimes misery loves a little company to get through it easier and move on.

    I’ll be thinking of Maddie and counting my own blessings tonight.

      Thank you Karen and Michelle. You’re both really incredible people. I think it’s wonderful that so many are rallying for Maddie. I hope others out there in similar situations know they are not all alone.

    Thanks for helping to spread Maddie’s story. We need to get to $1.3 million to make the Maddie James Seaside Learning Center happen…and I know it will! The best to you for a better year. It’s all about finding rainbows after the rain as Maddie and her parents teach us everyday.
