Well, time moves on (as it always has). Iím amazed to realize that weíve been posting status updates for almost 2 years. Not much of a long time for
an adult, but a veritable lifetime for a child such as Megan. I look at the picture of her (on the home page) in her hospital bed with her family back in
December 1998 and am in awe at how much she has grown up since then. As a matter of fact, everyone in that family picture has grown up a bit since
then, and everyone who has come to know about Megan has grown up a little bit more as well. Maybe the one comforting thought is that we have all
been allowed to grow up together.
Hello,It never ceases to amaze me how many people "find" Meganís web site and send messages such as this. I always forward them to Meganís Dad, and I know he always responds. It just proves to me that Meganís Candle truly does shine for all of us.
In 2 weeks, Thanksgiving will be here. Iíve been told by members of the Megan clan that I am duty-bound to volunteer at the Ronald McDonald House to assist with the Thanksgiving dinner being served to children with cancer and their families who are staying at the house. Something I wouldnít refuse, and something I am more than happy to have the opportunity to participate in. After all, there were so many people who stood by Megan and her Family,.....I can see nothing better than helping other "Meganís" in the world.
So, wherever you are on November 23'rd, when you sit down amidst family and friends, rest assured that there will be many of us saying prayers of Thanks for all you have done to help Megan and her Family. We have all been blessed by what you have done, blessed by your prayers, blessed by your messages, blessed by your caring. And as you sit at the table, take a moment to look into the eyes of the person next to you. We hope you will see the same reflection of a smile that we see as we look into the eyes of Megan.
This is what we wish to share with you this Thanksgiving. We offer our Thanks for Megan and for all of you. Each laugh, each smile,....each happy moment in time is something we share with all of you.
On behalf of Megan and her Family,
Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless You All!!
Megan is now in pre-school, she plays with her classmates, runs around like any normal, healthy child. She is learning how to read and write, and is becoming more proficient at creating greeting cards on the computer. She is a true 4 year-old waiting to turn 5 in January. She still looks for cooties, but she is now trying to figure out how to communicate with Mr. Bunny Rabbit. If anyone knows of Mr. B. Rabbitís address, Megan would like to respond to the last card he sent to her.
