Hi, I'm Susie's mom (mum for those of you in New Zealand), and Joshua's Nana. I asked Susie if I could make an entry on her blog in honor of Joshua's first birthday (7 January), asking that people would comment to Matt and Susie on Joshua's story, and how his life has impacted your life this year. Though he wasn't aware, his "Lifesong" sang out loud and clear. Joshua carried out his life mission in 67 days - most of us think we've got 67 years or more. I know my perspective on life has changed; each day and each life is so much more valued by me now.
Thanks for your support of Matt, Susie, and Oceana.
Mum and Nana
