hmmmm...... I just feel compelled

This isn't a funny post. this post has no real great meaning except for me. I wanted to take a few seconds to tell all the people I know and all the family I have and all the friends I have made that I love you all. I have been introspective today as I signed up to participate in the Susan G. Komen race for the cure. I am thinking of all the lovely women in my life that I have met and that have changed me one way or another. Through their stories of faith and persistance and fighting they have caused me to be grateful, thankful, and humble. I am thankful for lives lived and even though some of those lives ended early.... They lived to the fullest. I want to be one of those women. I want to enjoy each breath I am given, because unlike them, I can still breath. I pray for those that are still fighting their fights. Margaret, you are an inspiration. Your example of faith is unbelievable. Your strength is amazing. You are a strong woman. I am very proud of you. Zina, you are loved and you are missed. You loved everyone and everything.. even the critters in your back garden that ate your plants and made growing things otherwise impossible.. Caroleen, you have beautiful daughters that will continue on in your honor. You raised them well. You will be re-united again.

I don't know what else to say. I just wanted to say this. Thanks for listening. =)

Have a wonderful run for a wonderful cause. I did this one right after my mission and it was wonderful. I went by myself, but I didn't feel alone. I don't know how to explain it, but I'll never forget that run.
