A trip to Vancouver

Final thoughts about today.

This morning was a very moving morning.

I attended a celebration for the life of sweet, 5 day old baby who has touched so many people in his short existence.
It was a touching morning.  Singing "He will raise you up" a cappella was one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen an entire congregation do.
Seeing how strong Jordan and Hugh are, how well they are dealing with this is an inspiration.  Again, I can't say enough how proud I am of you, Jordan.  Your words on your blog are healing for so many people.  You are a trooper, a fighter and I can see where Tripp got it from.

Standing among friends and family today in support of 2 beautiful people was an honour and I feel blessed.  If you know Jordan and Hugh, then you know exactly what I'm talking about.  They are genuine people.  Their relationship is something I admire.  Jordan, did you know that when we were considering Godparents for Lucia that you and Hugh were our #1s until we decided to go the family route? That's how much I treasure the strength in your relationship with Hugh.  It really is a blessing to call you friends and I can't wait to see our families all grow up together along with the rest of the gang.

Having got these final thoughts off my chest and sent them off into the world of le cyber space, I'm left feeling much better.  It's like saying these things puts them out in front of me, makes them real, and forces me to live them.  Raw emotions can be good.  Don't get me wrong, the ugly cry is quite ugly, but it's healing to.

I'll end this ramble with a quote I found while snooping around on different blogs.  I think it applies quite perfectly to Jordan and Hugh's reality.

"There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world."
