Day 4 ~ Capture Your Grief 2012 ~ Most Treasured Item: This one was hard for me. We have so few things that actually belonged to Sadie, but I keep all her things in a little box and those times where I need to “hold her,” I open her box. Those teeny tiny diapers and blood pressure cuffs get me every time. Again, to participate in this event or to view more pictures, visit CarlyMarie’s Facebook Event.
Today’s “Capture Your Grief Project” photo suggestion was a photo after loss. I realized I have few photos of myself the year after Sadie died, so this is me lighting a candle in her memory at one of our Sadie Rose Foundation candlelight ceremonies. This photo is Day 3 for the Capture Your Grief Project 2012, initiated by CarlyMarie Project Heal. You are welcome to participate in this event too, even if you’ve missed the first few days.… Read the rest

The Bridgewater Ruritan Club has generously offered that in exchange for us providing volunteers for their food booth at the Rockingham County Fair August 13-18, 2012, the Sadie Rose Foundation will receive a donation from the Club’s proceeds that week!
Personally, I love the idea because all the planning and background work is done by the Ruritan’s and we just show up during the time slots on the sign-up sheet to help put drinks in the cooler, assemble sandwiches, take orders, etc.
It’s an easy fundraiser for us and a great way to support active community service organizations in our area.… Read the rest
