A Little Sprinkling


Today, with so many men and women working outside the home,

it is rare to find time to indulge your passions...like art!

A favorite quote on a Mary Engelbreit drawing gives me encouragement:

"You're never too old to be what you might have been."

Make time to enjoy what you truly love. I'm just beginning the journey.

Hot Dogs, Rain and the Relay

Today was the American Cancer Society's, Relay for Life, held in Woodhaven, MI. We walked, we talked and we sold for a cure. We sold key chains, wrist bands, cookies, cupcakes and HOT DOGS, with my husband grilling the "dogs" and me assembling them in the buns and foil wrap. It was a moving experience as cancer "SURVIVORS" walked to applause from the crowds. As evening drew nigh, one drop, then another and another until it poured rain. We would have walked in silence on a dark path lighted by hundreds of luminarias, dedicated to the memories of so many loved ones, but the luminaria bags would have bottomed out on the wet asphalt. All in all it was a good day for a good cause.

Rest well tonight. I know we will. We're tired and achy.
