Oh Dear Friends,
I am so happy and I've seriously got tears in my eyes as I type this. The grand total is $226 that we raised for the Susan G. Komen foundation. Every single penny that was donated is going to this worthy cause. Mike and I have covered any PayPal fees and shipping. I'm so happy for all your generosity. I feel honored to call you all my friends.
I've got to tell you a quick story that happened to me in Walmart just 2 days ago. I was shopping and had picked up a flyer with a pink ribbon product and the flyer was sitting in my basket. A lady near me was telling her adult daughter to get a bunch of celery. I just commented, "Oh I'm glad you mentioned that because I need celery too and had forgotten to put it on my list. Thanks for jogging my memory." The daughter looked over at me and saw the flyer in my basket, mentioned it and a brief conversation ensued. I told them that every women in my family has suffered or passed on from breast cancer. The mother said she had just been diagnosed and tears formed in her eyes. I wanted to say that I'm trying here to help with the fight against it. All I could say is, "I'm so sorry and my family will keep you in our prayers." This disease hits every family and it is heart wrenching. I want to say to all of you, Thank you, thank you thank you all for your generosity. Thank you to those of you who provided prizes. Thank you to those of you who donated money and thank you to all of you who have been praying for a cure. With all my heart I love each of you.
