This is my last day blogging, and I'm so so so sad! I'm going to miss typing and receiving your comments.
It was an honor to be the first one at Columbus Children's Hospital and the first one for the National Association of Children's Hospitals to write a blog. But still, I want you guys to keep in touch with me! If you would like to keep in contact, send me a comment and I will reply with my email address.
If I had to tell other children about the blogging experience, I would have to persuade them to try it because it's very very fun expressing yourself and telling your story for others. It was nice receiving comments because they are all so nice and they make you feel so much better, especially if you're having an off day.
My trip to Washington was my favorite part of blogging because I got to tell you everything that happened, and I got to express myself. It's not every day an ordinary person gets to meet Congress and I am grateful for that experience. I will never forget it! As you know, I have high faith and it was also nice sharing that with you guys.
I told you my story and how I'm healed and I know that touched you guys. I hope my story can bring hope to other children that are sick and also their families that are helping them cope.
Now that I am a big star, maybe one day you'll see me on Broadway! You'll say, "Hey, that's the girl who had sickle cell that blogged all those years ago!" I'm looking forward to that day. Who knows, maybe you'll even catch me in a soap opera!! But now it's time for me to close.
I want to thank the folks at NACHRI for this opportunity to share my story. I also want to thank Amanda Sima and Morna Smith from Columbus Children's for their support and leadership. And of course, Columbus Children's Hospital for saving my life. So much is possible now. I want to thank my family, especially Melissa. And of course, I want to thank God, because I know he's reading this and smiling somewhere.
This is the sad part. This is my last "peace" and may God bless. Bye!
