Really Random Thursday, 5/8/14

Last Saturday, we did our annual "walk to remember," in memory of our first grandchild, Caleb. It helps raise funds for Angel Babies, a wonderful organization that provides grief counseling for families who have lost a child.  Next year, Caleb would have been 10, so Christa is hoping to gather 100 people to walk in his memory.
True enough. 
I needed to read this several times this week.
As the title says, now you know.
No comment.

Rules for Really Random Thursday:
1. At last one random thing in your post.
2. Please leave a link in your post back to Live a Colorful Life.

Your turn.

I need a large black sign like that to keep me on track.

I hope you pass the 100 people needed for the walk next year, Cindy.

Who's the baby girl--did I miss you having a new grandchild?!?

Such a fantastic way for all to have a part in remembering Caleb. Count us in next year!

I am sure you will hit that 100 mark with ease Cindy, it is a lovely way to remember such a special person in your life.

Still trying to work out why it takes so long to make those Jelly Beans :)

Great ones, all! I might have to have a poster made of that "your job" quote and hang it in a future classroom, if and when I get one. :-)

Angel Babies sounds like a truly wonderful organization I love the group photo from your walk! Missing you....

What a lovely way to bring family together to remember your grandson and help others.

We live near a Jelly Belly distribution center, where they give tours (that actually area pretty bad), but we did learn how they make them, which is pretty cool. The fruit ones actually have fruit purees in them to get a true flavor. You can also try any of the flavors in their store. Everything from pepper, tabasco, booger, grass, and the yummy ones, too.

You are hilarious. Loved the woman quote, and the not judging quote. And I liked knowing how long things took to make. We need a quilt chart like that too.

I see your daughter holding a little baby. Do you have a new grandchild? Did I miss this news? Congratulations!
