I made it. Big goal number 1. Live to be 50. I've lived. I'm 50. Now what? I'm choosing my next goal. Around the world in 80 days? No, someone else has already done that. Invent wireless internet? No, that's been done too (thank goodness). Oh, I know...Keep living every single day...while I wait for a cure. That may have already been attempted by some, but that living part...I'm going to do it up in style.
I didn't' write on the blog last night because I had a HOUSEFUL. At one time I counted 13 of us in the kitchen alone...Bonnie and the family arrived last night around 7:15 then all the kids showed up, Shannon and Melana, 2 sister in laws, my father in law, Jake...Oh, there were probably more but I lost count. The evening was full of love and laughter. Bonnie and I stayed up after everyone else had gone to bed. We talked a little more, had a little wine and reminded each other that we would never have met if not for lung cancer. When I count my blessings, Bonnie is one of them.
I'm really looking forward to the next couple of days. Not that I want it to all be over, but to watch all of our hard work pay off. The committee is full of fun, hardworking people so it's not a chore to go to meetings or do the work. But, anyone of us would tell you that Relay
stuff is an everyday event.
Rick is getting a little more strength everyday. This won't be a year that he walks the most laps but he is the highest fundraiser for a man so he's definitely doing his part.
I'd better go, the house is starting to fill up with people again and I need to get in the shower.
Dreaming a little older and bigger,
