December 12, 2010: It's time to...


... CRASH!

Wow, I'm fresh outta gas from one heck of a long 4 days.  It was a pretty awesome run, though.  I met some pretty amazingly wonderful people this weekend.  I'm going to bed; but before I do, I have to say that Ali asked if I would take pictures of her 'Dora house' and put 'em on the blog for grandma!...

Okay, I can't even write a complete sentence.  I'm going to go and get some much needed sleep!

God night.


  1. I should should be looking for and applying for jobs right not. Obviously I am not. Reading your blog first thing in the morning is way better, and tends to make my day just a little bit brighter (in the darkness of what is winter in Sweden, that it is MUCH needed. Thankyou!!)

    Praying for you,
    Jennifer, Sweden

  2. Sad,sad photo so many things can be seen in this photo

  3. Love the stockings and the Dora house. I know a little boy who would love to play with Ali and that house. We need to put up our Christmas decorations but first I have to clean...

    Get some rest so you don´t catch anything before your big ski trip.

  4. Hi Tim!

    I'm excited for you reading your blog the past few days. Very glad that the music therapy program will continue and that you can continue to do AMAZING things for people who desperately need hope! :)


  5. Time for a much needed rest and recharge! Hope you got the needed sleep and had a great Sunday with Ali and Ang!

    Sending thoughts of comfort and peace.

  6. Rest, rest, rest...and maybe more rest!! Glad you had a good trip!

    Thanks Ali for the great pics of 'Dora's House' might be just the idea I needed for my Christmas gift for my 3 year old niece, Julia!

  7. We almost bought that dollhouse for Molly..but does it make sound?? We went with a wooden one for that reason ;) one can only take so much.
    love the for Lucy, too? Cute!
    That last picture is so symbolic of Bella's long journey home...speaks volumes to me.
    Rest. Rest. Rest....

  8. I love the pictures of Dora's House. Tim, tell Ali I said thank you for sharing them with me.

  9. Bella's photo is awesome!


  10. Sleep long and rest well Tim. Hugs to Ang & Ali.

  11. @ Sara - Yes the house makes noise and it is LOUD too....LOL. It was a gift from her cousin Brendan. She loves it!

  12. Tim,

    I look at Bella in the MN tunnel and I remember that, just like the tunnel, your steps on her behalf were and are a practical, direct and clear route towards what was and still is a very very tentative solution to EB.

    Yet you walked the path straight and true.

    And you carry on walking that path.

    Keep the spring in your steps, the hope in your hearts, the GO in your name, Family RingGOld...

    From the rooftops,

    Your friend Jane

  13. Hey - I recognize that Dora house! Love the stockings too - and that sweet Bella pic! Hope you were able to rest today and that you received peace and encouragement. Hugs to you, Ang and Ali!

    Love from TX,

  14. Cute Dora house Ali!! I love the stockings too!! Very cute!!

    Cute picture of Bella. It's like she has FOREVER in front of her to change lives!! That's pretty awesome.

    Stay strong!

    Lots of Love,

  15. The stockings are adorable and fabulous!!! Please hang a pair of fabulous socks on your tree for me! I have a pair hanging on our tree :)
    Always thinking of you all- still missing her with every ounce of Sara said, it speaks volumes to me.
    with all our love, always,
    nicole & family
