May Day

Can you believe it — the 1st of May is here!  Unfortunately, because of our geography we don’t have any May flowers, but they’ll be coming, I’m sure.

Lots to be thankful for this weekend:

  • the sun is shining
  • my family is safe and healthy
  • I’m healthy
  • I live in a wonderful country
  • I live in a warm, comfortable and beautiful (to me) home
  • I have time to be creative
  • I can do things to help others

That’s a short list and no where near complete, but it’s what came to mind in the moment.

Moments are precious — so much can happen in one — you can discover love, you can discover faith, you can discover belief in yourself, and you can discover just how fragile all that can be when in a moment your world is turned inside out by tragedy.

At the end of this month I’m going to be walking in a 16 hour event called the Relay for Life.  Teams of 10 put 2 people out on a track to walk and then, in relay fashion, walk for sixteen hours in support of cancer research.  It’s my first time doing an event like this and I’m really looking forward to it.  It’s my little way of honouring and showing love to all the people I’ve known/know whose lives have been affected by cancer. I’m going to post a link here so that anyone who wants to can go online and pledge their support for me.  Any donation is welcome — 5 bucks will be greatly appreciated, but if you can donate more you’ll receive a tax receipt for any amount over $25.  My personal goal is to raise $1000 — I could sure use some help.

It will only take a moment of your time — and it will help so many.

Thanks
