Good morning friends! Did you have a nice weekend? We were super busy, but it was GREAT! I would have to say the high point of the weekend was yesterday morning when we went and walked with my cousin at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. My cousin, Jessica, is just 34 years old and was diagnosed with breast cancer in June. She had a double mastectomy three weeks ago. She has chosen to FIGHT. She is amazing. Her attitude, her outlook, her spirit is inspiring. I am so proud of her and how she is moving through this difficult time in her life. She starts chemo in a week and I can't even imagine the emotions she must be feeling. I will do whatever I can for her.
Abie and Landry got up at 5:00 AM so they could walk and support Jessica. I was so proud of them :)
Here's Mike and my cousin, with her boxing gloves and all! Mike raised $220 and ran his first 5K yesterday. Another proud moment for me.
I have to be honest here, I've never given breast cancer a second thought. Until now. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Isn't that scary? I want my girls to be aware, I want them to have Jessica as a role model, she is unbelievable. I'm so proud she's my cousin.
Thanks for coming by today, and sharing in my proud moment. I'll be back tomorrow with a regularly scheduled crafty post :) Have a fantastic Monday.
