Basketball Half-Time Show!

These are pictures taken by my official sponsor- LAWRENCE HEIBEL at the Basketball Half-time show on Monday. My mom took the picture of me in the splits. It was a lot of fun, but I did go a little fast and I made a few mistakes. It's ok. My mom says that's ok, because it will keep me humble. I performed to Godsmack-AWAKE.

I Am Martial Arts

I am Mariah Moore,

But I am my Martial Arts,
The discipline,
The respect,
And the honor

I am all the tears shed,
All the broken bones,
Blood on my uniform,
And bruises on my body.

I am the first karate class,
Nervous as could be.

I am the First 1st place trophy,
That led me to peruse my dreams.

I am the feeling of winning the World Championships
On top of the world,
where no one could bring me down

I am Mariah Moore,
I am Martial Arts too.

In Loving Memory

Jason Michael Merchant

March 4, 1980 - January 8, 2008

Jason and me

I will miss you.

My cousin Jason is a real FIGHTER. He was born with a hole in his heart. They said he'd never live to be 12. But he proved them wrong, again and again. On December 20th he had his 5th open heart surgery to repair a valve and remove scar tissue. After 15 hours of surgery, and 3 weeks on life support, his heart just wouldn't work and his body got tired. Now he's with our gram in heaven. I want you all to know that this is the way I remember him. I never saw him mad, or sad, only with a smile. Always glad to see me.

Please pray for my Uncle David, Aunt Bev, Cousin Dave, Josh, Jamie, and Jako's girl Sammy. Their hearts are broken.

PARKER!!! Look at him now! So Handsome and Cancer free!!!

Check out his hair and eyebrows and eyelashes and those cow-licks! He got those from his dad!
What a big beautiful smile and Teeth too!
See his fuzzy bean!

I am so happy to tell you that Parker is done with all his Chemo and his stem cell transplant was a great success! The only thing he has left to do is radiation and that is just because they could not be more than 98% sure they got all the cancer with the surgery. The radiation will take care of the last possible 2%. For everyone who prayed for Parker or helped out with his benefit,

New to my blog? See Wednesday, August 22, 2007 Take a KICK at Parker's Cancer! a BIG Success! , July 25, 2007 ANGEL BABY!, and Sunday, July 8, 2007 Touched by an Angel Today! to learn more about Parky!
