Change is the only constant.
There are painful times in our lives that move in slow motion that we fear will never, ever end.
Then there are those times so full of pain, yet we grasp and hang on with all our might, fearing the second we let go we'll lose someone precious forever.
Losing someone you love is never easy. Watching them slowly slip away is unbelievably heart wrenching.
And yet we know that this too, shall pass.
We know the storms of rains will come, yet the sun will also shine again. And with it comes a warmth that perhaps we forgot how good it feels, and slowly the puddles dry and the mud clears, and the grass soon grows and flowers begin to bloom...
I want more sunshine and less storms.
I want more flowers to bloom.
I want more moms and daughters to walk arm in arm around their gardens pointing out the crocus and the purple coneflowers and even the bleeding hearts, whose very name makes my own heart ache because it reminds me of so many, many hearts that are broken or wounded, waiting for the sun in their lives to start shining again.
To each and every one of you, I want to express my appreciation for your generosity in support of the just 99 cents donation drive. Your assistance means so much to me but even more to every person affected by cancer.
To donate, please use the donate button on the right side of this blog post.
All proceeds will go to the Walworth County Cloggers' 2011 Relay For Life Team to benefit the American Cancer Society.
