David and I volunteered this morning for the Making Strides Breast Cancer Awareness Walk.

It was a hot, beautiful day. We were on the fruit station, cutting up bananas and oranges. I love being involved especially when we have had friends impacted by breast cancer. But really who hasn’t?

It was a good day. Hug the ones you love.

Sunday Thought

“When my alarm goes off hatefully early, I try to console myself with this:  No one is going to get to Heaven and say ‘Man, I wish I’d slept more.'” – Beth Moore

I so feel this way since surgery.   I feel as though everyday I must be doing something, because for years (yes, years) I wasn’t able to do anything but sit and watch life go by.

Yesterday, David and I participated in the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk at our local mall.  The walk wasn’t timed or for anything but to bring awareness.  Two years ago I would have felt guilt for not being able to participate.  Now, grateful I can.  Honored to walk for those who have left us too soon.  Honored to walk for those who still fight.

Up early…not liking it…but I LOVE it.

Blessings today.

My friend Beth.  
This is my favorite photo of her. 
She was so done with me and my camera. 
I had the pleasure of attending the American Cancer Ball with her.
Her hair had grown back, and the dress had a lace up back.
Her birthday is today, August 17.
We used to celebrate our birthdays together.
I miss that.
She would have been 38 today.
Breast cancer affects so many.
Beth was strong, happy, and always smiling.
I miss her.  She touched many of us.
Happy Birthday Beth.

October Breast Cancer Awareness


1 in 8 will get breast cancer. I believe we already had ours…many of ours actually.

Beth, Gretchen, Dana, Sandie. That’s four – we are done.

Shana is a consultant for Longaberger. She participated in a Horizon of Hope (breast cancer) awareness fund raiser.

Gerber Daises were Beth’s favorite flower. Pink. Mine too.

They raised $1,300 for a cure. This will become an annual event. I liked being with friends on this one.

Remember to do your exams, and get a mammogram!
