I'm really worse than the kids. I've been promoting Mother's Day for months now. After 25 years raising kids, I'm so good at it. Jay just called from California with a pre mother's day greeting, and to make sure that his gift arrived, it's in front of me now. I think it's an ipod, but I don't tell him I know. Poor Luke lives here with me in Toronto, so he's really in trouble. Tomorrow he takes me to brunch, and then I get to call the whole day. "You'll probably make me search for scholarships online", he complained. He's right, I will, that is already on my list.
Two years ago, on May 10th, my own Mom died, so this Mother's Day will be the second anniversary of her death. I still miss her so much. Lots to think about on Mother's Day.. will never get past losing Mom.
Have a good one - I loved having my mother, and I love being a mother. Lots to celebrate today.

'Amazing Brace' from Macleans Magazine, has been nominated for a National Magazine Award in the category of health and science. I'm so happy about that! I still receive letters daily from people looking for help for scoliosis, and I've received fantastic response from those who have been fitted with the brace. Adults are getting great pain relief, and I've heard from parents of children who are getting major curve correction. This brace is definitely keeping people, young and old, out of dangerous spinal fusion surgery. Amazing Brace is certainly the most rewarding story I"ve ever written. So many people are bein helped. Check out my scoliosis blog, I'm just getting it underway... there's a demand, sufferers are definitely desperate and need info...
