Sharing a cause using Beautiful Blessings

Hi
It's me again, I got sidetracked again this today and didn't get this posted like I wanted to this morning. I have been playing in the weekly progressive challenges at Delightful Inspirations and this week Faith gave us this beautiful image to create with in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness.
 As you all know this is a cause very dear and close to home after going through Breast Cancer with my 32 year old daughter.One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, so early detection is the key to surviving the disease

I think it is so wonderful that we in blog land do everything we can for this cause through helping to educate, bring awareness, offer hope and encouragement with our cards. Images like this one Faith has given us, is an honor to create with.
 This past Sunday was our local Susan G Komen for the Cure Walk  More than 10,000 dedicated community members participated in this inspirational five-mile walk. What a tremendous honor to be able to walk beside and among so many strong women, including my daughter. Then you think of all those that  weren't able to walk with us but were there watching over and encouraging on the strong survivors. 




If children have the ability to ignore all odds and percentages, then maybe we can all learn from them.  When you think about it, what other choice is there but to hope?  We have two options, medically and emotionally:  give up, or fight like hell.  ~Lance Armstrong



May God heal you, body and  soul. May your  pain cease, May your strength increase, May your fears be released, May blessings, love,and joy surround you .   Amen.
