Miscellaneous Monday

This morning I woke up to my friend Kelly who stopped by after she dropped her son off at school. We sat and talked for a few hours since it had been forever since our last visit. What a nice way to start the morning.

I'm sorry to say that my friend, Larry's son in law, Nick passed away yesterday morning. He was 38 years young with a wonderful family and friends who will surely miss him. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Here is the link to the To get to our story, click Love and Lung Cancer. I'm humbled by the story Carol Lin has put together. Check out all the links. There are some amazing stories.

Here is a little memo from Amy regarding Relay:

Currently we have two "Doreen's Dream team" relay teams signed up. We are allowed to have 15 people per team. We set up the second team when we got to 16 people but that is where we have stood... 16 people... for quite some time. The relay will be here before we know it (34 days to be exact) so we either need to get the teams filled up or drop the second team. I always look forward to seeing all of my favorite women in the same place at the same time so I would love for you to get signed up again this year. Please don't let the fear of fundraising be a factor for you. Our team is about raising awareness first, and money second. Please click on the link below to sign up for the team.

I've been feeling kind of cruddy this afternoon. Nothing in particular, just not myself. I think I'm going to call it a night and get my jammies on early.

Dreaming Big,

Oh Dor, I just watched the videos and am trying to find more tissues! I've never met you but I love you and your family so much!

Watched your video's last night....
Living life in color, yes, that is what has happened with my family too.

Thanks for sharing your story, for sharing your life. Although faced with the possibility of an early demise, you teach about life. Thank you Rick and Doreen, may you be blessed with many more years.
