Well, first there was a pizza that arrived from the McNab family... thanks Steph, sorry you weren't feeling well, hope to see you soon!
Then there was a knock at the door that brought the PTAC President from our elementary school and the PTAC Treasurer to our door. They had placed this sign at Family Fun Night at the school at one of the game rooms and brought over a couple of checks for me. Yeah, they pretty much brought me to tears on the spot. They were extremely. generous. gifts. Wow. I was literally weak in the knees. Thank you Suzanne, Brian, Jackie, and the rest of the committee members. We are deeply grateful.
My third (seriously, who gets 3 surprises in one day?) surprise happened as I looked out the window last night. A black SUV pulled up and out jumped one girlfriend after another. It took a minute for me to realize, it was the girls from my book club! They came bearing pink bows to hang on my house and a few other places in the neighborhood.
Heidi and Amy wearing their bracelets!
The whole book club, minus only one girl (who sent me a card today) Pretty amazing. At first I thought I had missed book club. But they said no. They had gathered at a neighborhood bar, tied their bows, and then came to my house. Oh, and they said they had also talked a little about the book. See what I mean, they had book club!
Thank you Heidi, Pam, Shauna, Amy, Jen, and Heidi.
It was both cold, and windy outside.
But the bows looked great this morning!
Even against the background of snow!
The bracelets for breast cancer pics keep rolling in! This is Mary, who is the mother of Amy in the pics above. Mary is from Grand Forks, ND.
And we have our first cat, Myron sporting the bracelet around his neck! Karla, Morgan and Myron from Paige, ND... my boys absolutely loved this one. Go Myron!
Deb, from Iowa, in honor of her sister Julie, with her in the photo below, who passed away at age 36 from breast cancer, and in honor of her friend Karla 32 who is battling the disease and beating it! Too young... way too many women and way too young.
Keep the pics coming!
So many of you have inquired about the silver hand stamped fight like a girl necklaces that we will provide a link to Joy who has graciously offered to make some to raise funds for me as well. Stay tuned... more to come.
I love story people and have one emailed to me daily. Thought I'd share this one from Brian Andreas:
I say live your moments everyday, live your moments.
