October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. Things are happening all around me and I want to grasp it all and say THANK YOU. It is such a mind numbing thing... learning about the diagnosis, going through treatment, asking for and receiving help from everyone, including strangers who will stop you in the street and simply say, 20 years, 15 years, 8 years.... they give me such hope and inspiration.
Walmart is selling pink light bulbs. I bought one and put it in the dining room where the light shines through the window, all day and all night. I will turn it off in November. Right now its soft glow wraps me in hope and love. I still need it.
Next week is Pink Week at school. We get to wear jeans and t shirts that relate to any type of cancer. I am having a hard time deciding which shirts to wear. So many of us have had to deal with cancer in our lives, losing children, spouses, and parents to the disease. Our jeans week money goes to Relay for Life.
