Yasss!!!!!! We are almost halfway there!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️ donate now and help us reach our goal of 50 iPads to Christmas!
Don’t mind me over here sobbing like a baby ♥️♥️♥️Do you know it matters?
All you saw was that you were tired and grumpy. All you saw was the ten times you said no to the 8yo begging to do ten different crafts. All you saw is the refrigerator that hasn't been cleaned since Godknowswhen. All you saw was things you need to catch up on. All you saw is the way your jeans didn't button as easily as you'd like. All you saw was the thousand things on your todo list that are left still undone. All you saw was the reading log you forgot to fill out again and the cancelation notice from one of your utilities because you were sure it was on auto pay (but it's not). All you saw was the twenty people you should keep in better touch with. All you saw was the rat's nest in the back of you 6yo's head that really needs to be dealt with.
All you saw was the things you didn't do.
But do you know what you did do?
You shared your bed with a little one who likes to karate kick in her sleep. You were tired and grumpy, but you made breakfast anyway (and yes bowls of cereal count). You leaned down to give that 8yo a hug even though her string of requests were driving you bonkers. You were so overwhelmed, but you grabbed that glass of water and zipped up that coat. You kissed that forehead and you apologized for being grumpy. You prayed a thousand prayers under your breath and you made sure each of them heard, "I love you" before they went to sleep.
You know what you did do? You showed up.
Do you know it matters?
You showed up with all your flaws and all your glory, and that my friend matters. It matters a whole lot.
It may seem small to you, but I promise it's not.

Wendy’s daughter Sophia, who is known as Fifi the Fierce, was FaceTiming her baby sister on Thanksgiving while stuck in the hospital. Her warrior mama Wendy sent me this and it touched my heart.
As much as I fight my kids to get off their devices or stop watching TV, technology is amazing when used for good.
This is a PERFECT illustration of why we work so hard to give devices to kids fighting cancer. We all need human connection. Tablets, laptops, smart phones- they help kids stay in touch with their siblings & friends, keep up with school work- and most importantly it gives them the power to escape their surroundings while undergoing cancer treatment.
Today is Giving Tuesday. We just launched our #50iPadstoChristmas campaign. Please join me in helping us reach our goal so that kids like Fifi the Fierce have a way to connect, know they are loved, and feel JOY this holiday season. ♥️ Every bit counts ♥️ www.AppleADay.Org/Christmas ...
I love this so much it makes me so emotional!! Words could never express the looks on the faces of the kids that receive!! So touching and heartfelt!! ❤️❤️ Keep up the kind heart, and love you spread wherever you go... it’s truly refreshing to see such positivity in a world of such negativity!!
Great job Jayde.
I just love what you do for these beautiful and courageous children!!! I used to cry all the way to work during the month of May, when you had your Apple A Day on PLJ!!! You bring joy to so many people!!! Keep spreading your love and kindness, Jayde!!! ❤️
You are one super woman to the kids
We couldn't agree more!! Maggie received her iPad with Sophia in clinic 💜 jayde you were so kind to deliver to our warriors. We have been praying for Sophia 🙏🙏🙏
Wendy’s words are so true. So many patients loose all contact with the outside world when they are in the hospital. Jayde and her Apple a day foundation changes the world for these kids. The families are blessed with your gifts.
