today thoughts swirl
in this head of mine-
this coming friday-
two days away...
is our local relay for life
i have walked in the
survivor lap to start
the relay ever since we
started having it here in
our local town!
a week ago
i received an email
from one of the ladies
in charge of this years relay-
she asked me if i would share/speak
during the luminary part of the program
which is always a bit emotional anyway for me...
they announce all the names on the luminary bags
and usually have some gifted speakers...
this year they asked ME? oh dear.
as i am comfortable writing
i am not comfortable in speaking
i have been asked twice before...
for different events-
but, i am usually a nervous wreck! LOL
to top all this off,
is the fact that-
that afternoon before i walk and speak
i will be heading
to seattle to visit my oncologist
for my six month bloodwork/check-up-
happy thoughts & prayers would
be ever so wonderful & very appreciated!
i will be inviting my family
to come share this moment with me
i could not have done it without them
and their support & love...
how about you, have you ever
been asked to do something that
is out of your comfort zone?
were you able to keep your wits about you
and not fall apart? :)
may you have a fabulous wednesday!
i wish you all the happiness this day
has to offer you!
i leave you with this quote
by Anne Frank
where there's hope there's life
it fills us with fresh
courage and makes us strong again.
