During October, the NFL is showing it's PINK, to raise awareness about breast cancer and how important early detection is. As a survivor myself, I am proud to see this disease recognized by the sport of football, and it's reminder to all of us that breast cancer can be beat. I'm sure there are many football wives who have faced bc, My favorite football player, Brett Favre, is the husband of a breast cancer survivor, Deanna. Her book is a great read for anyone who has the disease or supports someone with it. I'll be checking the pink out for the rest of the month on the football fields, it reminds me of how I fought this disease and won.

A wonderful lady I met here on Spark People has lost her fight with breast cancer. Her name was Donna, screen name MRSFIXIT. She was a courageous warrior in the fight against this disease that can take over your whole body, it raged inside her, spreading to her liver. But despite the cruel spread of cancer, the light of hope never dimmed in her mind. Her spirit was happy, alive, hopeful she fought as tough as she could and never gave up. Her body became tired and as she left her husband and family physically, her spirit and joy will remain alive in them. She now is safely in the arms of Jesus, her love for Him showed even in her last days she read the Bible, it meant so much to her. When we see a RAINBOW, let us think of DONNA, shining her colors of light and love from heaven above When we see a BUTTERFLY, let us think of DONNA, flying freely with peace and joy When we have a chance to SMILE at someone, even if our day is rotten, let us think of DONNA, and the smiles she shared in her LIFETIME. I will never forget you DONNA, your courage touched my heart You are an ANGEL to me. I pray for your family now, God be with them. You made a beautiful difference in our world I thank God for letting our paths cross in life, I will always remember you, dear Donna, our MRSFIXIT.

I had a garage sale last weekend, and donated items to various organizations this past week. I plan to get rid of more. To bless someone elses's life with what I don't need. I looked at myself this morning as I got out of the shower, yes I am thin, at my goal weight, but not really fit, my stomach is flabby, arms un-toned, I wonder why? I have been at my goal weight for quite sometime now, yes I have had my share of health ups and downs, surgeries, but I should be able to commit to a regular exercise routine, my disorganized home seems to have alot to do with this. I am a chronic procrastinator, I seem to never finish projects. I think the way my house looks de-motivates me. Day after day I work hard doing chores, ridding myself of items we no longer need, I am making progress, though slow, it will finally "one-day" be the way my family needs to live, in a clean and un-cluttered home. Today my prayer is that I make time for me too, to set aside time for exercise, to get away from the constant battle of trying to organize this place. I have great exercise equipment, I just need to use it more and remind myself of the benefit I get from it. to clutter, Hello to Exercise. Inga
