WOW!!!...what a day. ...mid morning I was told of Farrah Fawcetts' passing. Later in the afternoon...Michael Jackson's. 2 of my Icons growing up....gone forever. what an odd sensation...
I imagine it being like the emotional weekend for my son Billy...when his idol ,Dale Earnhardt Sr. lost his life, even tho that was more sudden and unexpected...or maybe not....I am saddened... for both. You all know that finding a cure for cancer has been on the front of EVERYTHING I do.....poor Farrah never even got to say "yes" to the man that would stand by her through it all. and Michael...the King of pop....to leave just before his comeback.....hummm...king of "POP"...married the only child of the King of "rock and Roll"...Maybe Elvis really wanted to meet him. there has got to be some comfort....some where....no more suffering ...for either of them.
Cant believe its been so long since my last post... time sure flies! We had our "Relay for Life" event last weekend and raised over $60,000 to help find a cure for Cancer. it was a very emotional relay for me. We (my sister-in-law & I)started our relay team after my Dad lost his battle with Lung Cancer 5 years ago. Just May 27, my Father-in-law lost his battle. There was a heavy feeling in my heart the whole weekend.....but then again, made me glad to be part of such a terrific event that raises so much awareness and hope. We had special guests added to our team this year. My daughter-in-laws parents and aunt spent the day with us. More Cancer losses... We just need to find a cure.
Its a new year. I cant believe that it took me this long to "update" my blog! guess I just didnt know what to say....then I got a poem from a friend (thanks Trisha!) and since it is 3 degrees outside right now...thought it fitting! Happy New Year to all!
