A little less than an hour ago, my friend and hero for students worldwide, @joe_bower, passed away peacefully with his family by his side.
While we were at Oakridge Mall #Vancouver tonight Angel was very persistant that she had to talk to Santa as she had a very important message for him. There was a 45 minute wait so I tried to convince her to see him on a different day. But she was determined to see him tonight and personally deliver her Christmas wish to him. And so we waited. Angel's excitement grew and children nearby talked about the toys they would be asking Santa to deliver to them on Christmas eve. In response Angel told several families about her request to ask Santa. There were some amazed parents to say the least. When Angel reached Santa they posed together for pictures and then Angel got down to the reason she was there. She politely told Santa that Michael Bublé's boy was very sick. Santa acknowledged that he was aware of this sad news. Angel then asked Santa to help make him better. The lump in my throat grew huge as Angel spoke with Santa. A tear drop sprung from my eye. I'm quite sure Santa felt a similar reaction. He told Angel that he was worried as well. He said that helping kids heal is more God's job than his, yet he reassured her that both God and himself cared about Noah and they are both sending good healing wishes and love to him. Santa then promised to deliver Angel's love to Noah and to make sure that he received some very nice presents for Christmas. That gave Angel the happiest heart. As we were leaving Santa asked Angel for one more hug. It was a long one. ♡ It was easy to see that Santa's heart was very touched by his visit with Angel. She could have asked for a gift for herself but she didn't. She knew where her heart lie....in helping Michael's boy, and all of her other #HugginzKids, to heal. Angel's love is a true gift to our world. ♡♡♡♡♡ - Nurse Mom #HugginzByAngel #WrappingSickKidsInAWarmHug #moderndaymissionary #proudtohavedownsyndrome

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month across the USA. In Canada we celebrate Down syndrome Awareness during the first week of November. So for the next five weeks we will be celebrating individuals across North America who live with Down syndrome. ♡♡♡ #labeljarsnotpeople #seetheability #dontlimitme #HugginzByAngel #WrappingSickKidsInAWarmHug #moderndaymissionary #proudtohavedownsyndrome
