A Song for Daniel, Stillborn by Jean Felice Eilbert (his mother)
When I held you in my arms that day Born so still, born anyway How was I to know to say goodbye? No one knew just what to do Except tell me I'd get over you As if forgetting makes it all untrue -- a lie
But I remember to remember I can't forget just to forget Your memories are a part of me Connecting me to what comes next.
And even after all this while I think of you, sometimes I smile Memories of my unknown child, fade slow. I've held you in my heart each day Life so short, life anyway Memories are meant to say hello.

Follower of the Month: Audrey
Each month, I feature one of my followers as the "Follower of the Month". This gives me a chance to get to know my readers a little better. These posts go up the first Saturday of the month. (I'm a little late this month, sorry!). I am also looking for participants to be Follower of the month for November and December. Send me an email if you're interested.
I live on a farm near a small town in Southern Manitoba. Actually grew up only a few miles from here, but have lived in different parts of Manitoba in between, as well as spent one year living/working in The Netherlands.
I've been married to Brad for almost 22 years now and we have to wonderful sons ages 20 & 18. As a part-time job I drive a school bus - it's the greatest job in the world! :)
3.When did you start blogging and why?
I do believe I started about 2 years ago. Why? It started out being a way to promote my Etsy shop, but it didn't take long to realize that was pretty boring so it's evolved into posting about other shops, my life, sometimes blog hops etc. Had to start another blog where I do reviews/give aways, it was just too much for one poor blog.
5.Has blogging changed you or your outlook on life at all?
Not really, I don't think. Some of my favorite blogs have posts once in a while that really make you think about what you are doing and or life. But other than that, I don't think so.
6.Link us to 1 - 3 of your favorite posts from your own blog(s)
8.How did you come to be a follower of mine and why do you follow me?
I actually have absolutely no idea how I found your blog! Started to follow you because we happen to be living in the same Province :) I enjoy reading your posts, the Friday Funnies are always great :)
9.What, if anything, have you gained from reading from my blog?
That people can survive anything, and how lucky I really am.
10. Tell me the truth, you're going to brag to all your bloggy friends that you were my follower of the month, aren't you? ;)
