Today and tonight and tomorrow my girls are participating in our local Relay for Life for The American Cancer Society. Their National Honor Society and Student Government groups from high school are participating and my girls are there for the long haul, walking, resting, supporting, drawing attention and fund raising for the fight against cancer.
I think my daughters signed up to do this because it’s a fundraiser and it’s community service that they need for state college funds and service clubs. I hope they are also remembering all those that we love who have battled cancer and won the fight like their Aunt Betsy and friends Tracy T and Tracey C. and many more. I hope they remember those we love who lost their battle to cancer, like their Granny and Papa “Beau”, Kevin’s parents.
I’ll be going out tonight between 8pm and midnight to chaperon and doing my own walking and supporting and thinking about all those that I love who have had to fight this battle. I’ll be thinking of Denise, and how her mom lost her battle on my birthday last year. I’ll be thinking of Alex the Girl, and how she won her battle, but continues to cheer for those battling cancer.
The field trip was awesome!! The bus ride was no big deal at all, and the play was wonderful! I got all teary at the finale when the whole cast sang “America”, call me sappy, I don’t care.
