Thankful Thursday

I want to apologize for my blog yesterday. I know I got a few people riled up about the radio station, but once I put a little more thought into it, it dawned on me that perhaps my story was too close to home for someone at the station. Or, perhaps they were looking for someone who was a long time survivor not someone still fighting the battle. As long as you all know I still have a fight in me, that's all that matters. I don't need to share it with a radio station....

Last night Amy and I had the opportunity to speak at the Burlington Relay for Life Kick Off. We had a wonderful time, cried a little, laughed a lot. Amy took the opportunity (like usual) and had a little fundraiser (actually she just walked around and collected loose change...though she said she also accepted bills). She left the event with $97. That's what I'm talking about! We were at a kick-off for Burlington so they could raise money, and Amy took their money instead for Stanwood's Relay. You've gotta love it. We met some great people with a passion much like ours and we felt honored to be their guest speakers.

Since I feel so thankful today for my life and the people I love...I've decided to make a Thanksgiving turkey. I know I'm a couple months late, or a few months early...but why should we only be thankful one time a year?

Have I mentioned lately that I love you more than all the polar bears in Alaska? Wait, are they endangered species? Ok, I love you more than all the snow in Alaska.

Dreaming Big and Thankful,

Don't ever apologize for your amazing energy and power of hope. I guess they would rather spend their time waiting for that one caller who listened all day long so they could win concert tickets. Shame on them. PRIORITIES! Or should I say lack off. We love you! Your friends in Southern California
