To each and everyone one of you (yes, I’m talking to YOU!) …

Four years ago – I wrote this blog:

Today, there is so much more. There is Josie who takes good care of Owen’s heart. There is an unnamed girl in IL who was given more time with Owen’s liver. There are family and friends whom I met in the midst of my grief and now I have NO CLUE how I could ever live without! I bubble over with care and love from the angels God has sent my way.

To each and everyone one of you (yes, I’m talking to YOU!), thanks for loving me and my children. Thank you for walking this path with me … I didn’t have a choice but you did. You chose to weep and cry with me 4 years ago and you continue to walk with me today. I am totally convinced that life is about who is on the journey with you, rather than any destination. It’s about the love we share, the support we offer and the truth we speak. I know with God all things are possible and I believe that he makes it just a little bit easier by giving us each other.

My gratitude for for family, friends and internet besties is endless. If there is ever a time when you need a sister to walk with you, I’m here. I’d be honored to pray for you or to be a listening ear. It’s the least I could do after all the healing you have offered me. Ya’ll are like my life band-aids 🙂

God is good all the time. All the time God is good.

Love, Mel


  1. Hi Mel, You do not know me, but I have walked with you and prayed for you and your family since the start. I have no idea how I began to read your blog and have never followed any other blog. Wouldn’t even know how to find one. You are loved and cared for by many more people than you will ever realize. I have cried with you and laughed with you and you have inspired me and made me a better person. Blessings always to you and your family Hugs, Maryrose

  2. It has been a pleasure walking with you. I wish my “Owenge” shirt was not tattered and stinky –from so much wear. Because of it I was able to share your story of grief, and hope, and love with so many people. You are one amazing woman!
