The Relay and Spark
Friday, April 27, 2012
Today started our local Relay For Life. Bob and I were to attend this evening so I could be in the Survivors Lap and dinner. It wasn't to be. I am still so sore from Wed's fall and lack of sleep. I am still queesy and it isn't a lot of fun. I feel cheated in a way. Last year I couldn't make it because of being in tratment for the second time and now this year too. I have gone through so much and will continue to for my lifetime and I really deserved to be able to be acknowleged for this. After all, everything I have been through will add to research to help others in the future. I honor those who came before who helped my diagnosis to not be immediate death sentences as they were not that long ago. Those couragous people did what they could for research that in turned helped me. I am so proud of them for being so selfless. I want my life to be a tribute to their sacrafices.
This is short, for sure. But with it on my mind and in my thoughts, I wanted to get it expressed. It is rather like SP. I keep thinking had all this info been available when I was young and females were getting daily exercising and encouraged to do so, how much easier things might have been. I love that I have taken control of healthy living for myself. And I applaud those who worked so diligently to get these things into schools, the military, etc. And how couragous of Chris to get the information to all Sparkers and to see it remained free for our use as much and as often as we need.
So this has been my Friday and my thoughts all day long. I feel so fortunate to have a place to share with all of you. Thanks again, Chris!
I may not be able to dance as I used to for real, but no one can "cut a rug" as I do in my thoughts and dreams!! Right now I'm doing a fine Irish jig!!
Blessings my friends. Enjoy your weekend.
Love and peace to you all!
