Dearest friends & followers,
I wanted to share an update for the fundraising goal of 2022 for Pledge The Pink; to date the organization has raised $650,738.19 and still climbing. Donations for the 2022 event are still being accepted through Monday, October 31st, 2022.
I also received news today that the team I am involved with is currently the 3rd highest earning team. Way to go Team Boo 🐝 🦩
It is such an honor to be among this brave and courageous women. The words Faith, Family and Friends…fills my heart to overflowing.
Team Boo Bees — Breast Cancer Survivors
I first heard of this group from a dear friend I met in college. Margaret is a breast cancer survivor and warrior! She has participated in this event in the past along with another dear friend, Nancy. We all met in college and have remained friends throughout the years. Life happens, distance grows geographically and personally but the bond we have with one another has endured over almost four decades. Spending last week with them was a blessing from God. God’s timing is always “right-on-time.” He knows us and wants only the very best for us, His plans are always far better than any thing we could ever dream up. Case in point, the plan was everyone would be leaving on Sunday and I was staying over until Monday to close up the house we rented. As it turned out, Nancy’s plans were changed and she and I stayed to close up the house. We spent time Sunday night just talking, sharing in conversation and it was awesome. We spoke about family, life struggles, health, faith and theology, to mention a few. It was all so wonderful. My most favorite, well two favorite things we did were; we prayed together and we sang, “In The Garden.” Thank you, Nancy! Bonus time, I was blessed to drive her to the airport Monday morning at zero dark thirty and we talked and shared more, truly a blessing.
I wish time would have allowed me to spend more time with Margaret, her husband Greg and their daughter Alicia but life is busy and the weekend was very event filled. I am beyond blessed to have these individuals in my life. I also was blessed with two new friends over the weekend, Art and Michelle looking forward to getting to know them better. God is good, God is always good!
Thank you for following my journey and supporting my blog. Blessings to you this day!
