‘It’s a wonderful life’….Mine isn’t so at the moment

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Another WONDERFUL day of activity and a BIG thanks to Lou Britton for the show! And to Julie H and all the lovely ladies of Broady for putting on a spectacular FILM day… ending with tonight’s “ Its a wonderful life”. Last night’s SHARE was spectacular and I cannot thank you all enough. We had approx 6,920 shares and over 1,000 new passengers boarded our train. So much goodness out there and positivity. Unfortunately as we attract more attention, we also attract negativity and bored people. For the individuals that took it upon themselves to say that our page was a “scam” and that our supporters were “guilt tripped”… I would just like to say that I hope you never have to try these shoes on in which I walk day in day out, never mind actually walk in them. To feel an ounce of this hurt would bring you to your knees… you have no right to trash my Son’s memory and trample on our grief… I have some “homework” for you… take a couple of hours out of your day tomorrow and watch “Its a wonderful life”… Mine isn’t so wonderful at the moment, but I still have things to be thankful for…. There are moments of sheer wonderment every day through this precious page… over 11,000 people are supporting our cause and giving something back… a line from the film is; “ All that you can take with you is that which you have given” and if you don’t have anything to give that’s good then this webpage isn’t for you… negativity is not welcome here. And on a final note “No man is a failure who has friends”… I have a fabulous support system, a wonderful Hubby, Son and Amazziinnnngggg friends… I am no failure by the true measure of the greatness that surrounds me.. and Reuben’s Retreat now has over 11,000 friends – GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU AND YOUR PRECIOUS FAMILIES …. A BELL Tolled long and hard on the 21st of August when my Angel Reuben got his wings…. and as Isaac said tonight in the car “Mummy, if Reuben had not died, there would be no Reuben’s Retreat would there..” “No Darling” was my reply…….

    My heart breaks for you, there are no words but to little Isaac (I also have a little Isaac!) – Dear Isaac, I wonder if there would be Reuben’s Retreat without you. Your love will have kept your Mummy & Daddy so strong and helped make this all possible x
