Dear Elliott

This is a tough post but well worth it. If you haven't seen this video on YouTube yet, grab a box of tissues and sit down. It's beautiful, touching, and heartbreaking.

It's called 99 Balloons.

Sidenote - I saw this on Oprah while I was in the waiting room at the radiologist office. By the time it was over, the entire room was sniffling, even the men. What a thing to lift my spirits before I have to get a mammogram. Ugh. I don't look like I'm gonna be 40 next year. Why do I have to start acting like it. Suck-ola..

I hadn't seen or heard of this story. How beautiful it was told. I used my share of tissues.....

Even though I had a feeling how the video was going to end, I still cried. What a beautiful family.


I'm married. I have 3 kids. I have a big nose. Now go on and catch up.

Keep it nice or I'll post your email and make fun of you.
