Although final numbers still need to be tabulated we are close to, if not over, $3000 in pledges collected for our team, which participated on Sunday in the Halifax MS Walk!!

I want to thank everyone who supported our team in our effort to raise awareness for MS education and research and ultimately, a cure.

Namely I'd like to thank Erin Trafford of Global Maritimes, Kool 96.5 in Halifax and Nadine Poirier of Natural Illusions for featuring me and Team Gracie's Mum, on their stations and in their work, in support of our quest to End MS!

I especially want to thank my family, friends and students for your daily support not only of me, but of Steve and Grace too because we know first hand that this is a disease that attacks more than the Central Nervous System, it is far reaching, it affects the family as well.Without the support we receive on a daily basis, we would never be able to manage. So, many, many thanks!

Much love!

....and then it was May.

 It's been a while, I know.

I'm taking an unofficial hiatus from writing to sort out my priorities.

Between, work, school and home life, volunteering, and choosing a grad school or a second degree program, writing has taken a semi permanent position on the back burner.

I've realized a few things over these past few months and have drafted up some soon to be stellar posts and will share as soon as things slow down.

In the mean time, we are gearing up for the 2013 Halifax MS Walk and Team Gracie's Mum is in fine form to do well in our fundraising efforts! This year our team is an eclectic mix of family, work friends, former students and current students. I am honored to be leading this amazing team and my heart is warmed at the fact that they are all in it for me and my cause.

This past weekend was Mother's Day and I was spoiled as usual (in the form of a brand new boogie board) but was under the weather with a laryngitis inducing wicked cold so I slept most of the raining Sunday away.

Thankfully all that sleeping brought back my voice in time for an interview with Global Halifax, yes the TV station, promoting MS Awareness month, this blog and Team Gracie's Mum.

If you are in the Halifax area tune in tomorrow at 6, 7 or 8am to watch me and Grace or find us on the website after the broadcast is uploaded.

In the meantime, love each other and the beautiful sunny days ahead!
