• About Jonah's Mom

    I believe in being a leader without title and always strive to do better. I am inspired by doing kind acts for others and believe in the power of intention. I don't give up just because I am told something can't be done. I ask why and strive to do the impossible. Hardships happen to all of us (everyone has a story) but I choose to look for the rainbow through the storm. I rely on my husband for support - he is my hero. Education is power and I strive to always learn more. I aim to live each day as if it is my last and choose to show people how I like to be treated. I say what I feel and aim to have the people I encounter leave better than they came. I love my career and do it because it is my passion. Because time flies when you enjoy what you do, I slow time down by being present in each moment. I choose to live now with no regrets of "should have". I enjoy life and the people in it.

    It is so easy to get wrapped up in our own problems in life and since Jonah Wynn has passed away I have been consumed with healing the grief I feel as well as trying to improve my own physical health.  But for day twenty-six I add a new dimension to my healing, to...

    Today I woke up with baby Lola, my brother Aaron’s daughter, and his dog Jake in the bed with me.  Jake was as comfortable as could be cuddled in with both Lola and I.  Lola, although not used to being rocked, seemed quite content having me rocking her over and over again until it...

    Tonight I attended an open house at Nancy Campbell Collegiate Institute in London Ontario.  My brother Aaron is employed there as a teacher and often sings their praises of how well they treat their students and how well the students treat each other.  I found a comfortable seat and sat back with my brother...

    Today we hosted a family party for our daughter Rion’s tenth birthday and when I woke up I knew exactly what I needed to do for day eighteen; be open to help when I need it. Birthdays to our family are one of the most important celebrations of the year and celebrate is exactly...
