I left a few things hanging so I thought I'd let you know where things stand.
October, also known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month is almost half over. The fur girls and I want to remind you to pick up that phone and make an appointment for your mammogram. If yours is already done, call a friend or loved one and remind them. It could be the most important gift you ever give them.
My best friend Sue and I lived next door to each other for ten years. About six months after we moved here, she found a lump during her monthly self exam. It turned out to be a very aggressive form of cancer.
Sue and I talked on the phone daily during her treatment and sometimes several times a day. Rob called her husband and gave him someone to talk with and confide in. We sometimes forget that cancer affects the whole family.
During Sue's treatment which consisted of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation, Sue, her husband and young daughter, Rob and I all wore these little pink ribbon pins every day. When treatment was almost over I bought these sparkly pink and silver pins for her and myself. They're our party pins for special occasions.
A few years ago Rob was on a business trip to Arizona. When he returned he handed me these three pink velvet jewelry bags. Inside were a necklace, bracelet and earrings made of pink stones, with ribbon charms and other charms saying things like "live life to the fullest" and "enjoy every moment".
Next on the agenda... this is Vet Tech Week. These are some of our techs with their pets.
Early Monday morning we drove to All Creatures, out vet hospital and made this delivery.
It was well received and I hope everyone had a cupcake with their lunch.
Finally, we have twelve people who want to participate in the Winter Solstice gift exchange. I'm glad we have an even number. If you haven't already sent me your email, please do it now so we can get this going. I need your mailing address, blog address if you have one, favorite color and how many and what type of pets you have.
Get your info to me ASAP so we can get those gifts ready to fly.
