It's October...

Before the Big C, October made me think about cooler weather, pumpkins, mums and trick or treating.  Although I still think about those things, I'm also much more aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  I've even made a new blog banner for this occasion.

If you're local, you may be interested in this article.  The Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation is also sponsoring the annual Flames of Hope.  Last year, my wounds were still a bit raw, but I think I may be ready to check some of it out this year.  I'm even considering running in the 5k; I'd guess I'd better make a decision since it is coming quickly.

This Big C thing sucks, but, to quote my Memere, there isn't anything so bad that something good doesn't come out of it. 

Yesterday I got this message from my cousin with the following picture attached.  

"There is going to be a board breaking by Mastery Martial Arts at the Gloria Gemma Waterfire. They asked people to draw/paint on the boards first. Here's yours:" 

It made me cry.  I am humbled (still) by the outpouring of love and support and I am grateful for all of it.  

Having the Big C was scary and uncertain and being a survivor of the Big C can sometimes stir up some of those same emotions.  Life is a constant journey, with twists and turns, bumps (that sometimes feel like mountains) and life altering detours.   Thank you to all of you who have encouraged, supported and loved me through this and continue to do so on a daily basis. xo  

And, I'm going to try my best to avoid being sappy for the entire month of October, it's not good for any of us.
Thanks for reading...
...and because I needed a Melissa Etheridge fix on this beautiful day, I figured I'd share it with you!
