A New Web Site!

Posted by: tamara

As we approach the last few days of September, there are a few things we’d like to share.  First of all, after months of hard work, Reflections Of Grace has a new web site.  The address (www.reflectionsofgrace.org) is still the same but the site is totally redesigned.   Brian and his brother Corey have spent countless hours tending to each and every detail of the site to make it informative and user-friendly.   All of the content has been re-written and we have added photo galleries and slideshows of our events in the past year.  My favorite part is a last-minute addition to the “Grace’s Story” page (make sure to read to the bottom!).  We are so thankful for Corey’s meticulous diligence and devotion of time, along with his expertise and talent that has made the site look so professional, yet beautiful.  Please take a few moments and check out the new look!

Secondly, on Monday, October 12, 2009, Reflections Of Grace presents its first golf outing.  The event will be held at Madison Club Golf Links in Madison, PA.  We have extended the deadline for registration and sponsorship to Friday, October 2.  Please go to the golf outing page of the web site at http://www.reflectionsofgrace.org/index.php/golf-outing.html to download a registration form.  If you are interested in golfing or sponsoring a hole, please print, complete and mail the form as soon as possible, as spots are filling quickly.

We continue to engross ourselves in foundation work and are gearing up for the planning of the 3rd Annual Race for Grace, set for Saturday, March 20, 2010 at Norwin High School.  In addition, we are in the initial stages of planning a “Breakfast with Santa” event in North Huntingdon on Saturday, November 28, 2009.  Most days, it is still hard to fight the realization that our lives are very different than we ever would have expected.  Sometimes I find myself looking down and expect to feel a little hand holding mine as we cross a street or walk in a crowd.  We see Grace’s friends and wonder how she would look and what she would be wearing.  We have typical every day experiences and imagine how Grace would react.  The other night I caught the end of the show Grey’s Anatomy where the characters were dealing with their grief of the death of a co-worker.  The show was a chronology of the day by day dealings of how grief had enveloped their lives…it was one of those shows where I probably should have changed the channel, yet I continued to watch.  I thought that some of the sentiments shared were so raw, so true… that grief sneaks up on you and just when you think you have a handle on it, it leaves you breathless. 

So we must acknowledge that those moments and then somehow find the courage to take the next breath….
