crazy, weird, UNIQUE!

I love you, You are awesome, you are great, thank you, please, excuse me, I was wrong, may I have this dance….

There are so many words that are nice to hear.  I love it when someone says, “You smell good.”  BUT OUT OF ALL THE WORDS IN THIS WORLD, I truly believe, we don’t express ourselves enough when it comes to these…

I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!

I know some of the phrases I listed above kind of say or mean the same thing, but don’t beat around the bush…say it like you mean it, with intent and mean exactly what you say:

I AM PROUD OF YOU.

I heard these words earlier in the week from my 2nd grade teacher.  She had me in class YEARS AGO (I’ve actually counted them…), but even though she hasn’t been in my daily life in many years, those words coming from her beautiful little self made my heart smile so!  I’ve thought about those words all week.  She made me feel more accomplished with that little sentence than any plaque or trophy ever could.

We NEED those words.

We need to say those words… not just think of them.

I have let those words go across the marquee of my mind so many times and not uttered them.  Why?  I’m not sure at all, but I make it my vow to voice them when I think them from now on.  I want to bless others as Mrs. Lattimore did me.  She may never know how awesome she made me feel, but I will pass that feeling forward.

I encourage you to do it too!  Tell those that you are proud of…

Say it audibly, clearly and intently, OUT-LOUD,

“I AM PROUD OF YOU.”

#CRUSHcancer 5K

I totally finished that 5K today!!!

SOOO, I was pretty much last, but I did it.  It’s ok that I and one other gal were the only two on the track.  The rest of the group went the city course, but really, I didn’t want to hold up any traffic with my mad walking skills or awesome legs.  haha!

All kidding aside, we had an awesome event which made some nice change for the Texas Oncology Foundation.

Here’s a pic of most of the group…

I loved doing this and am ready to tackle on another.  Well, I’m not ready to be the main organizer of one yet…I’ll wait another year for that, but I’m ready to go walk one again.  It was a lot of fun!

My whole family participated in it as well.  This is how my 10 year old felt in the end…

BUT WE ALL HAD A GREAT TIME FOR A GREAT CAUSE!

Spaghetti!!!

Tonight was our spaghetti dinner before our 5k event tomorrow. 

There were 50 plus people there and what a blessing that was!  Having people come to support was just so great.  

Both events—the dinner and 5k–are to benefit cancer patients in our area. 

I can’t even explain how proud I am of the students who helped with the event.  There are so many who step up and really go above and beyond. 

Our guest speaker tonight was amazing. He’s a survivor who the through his struggle and victory, decided to start up a cancer outreach program.  His name is Nathan Mathias and he is the founder of His Hands & Feet Ministry, Cancer Outreach. hishandsministry7@gmail.com. Check him out sometime. 

Need to get some sleep so I can get that 5k WALK ON tomorrow!
