Bunco for Breast Cancer

IMAG1802

I’m only finding a bit of time to blog recently but wanted to share a great gift and thank a thoughtful supporter of wellness.

This month I’m volunteering for a Bunco for Breast Cancer fundraiser and I’ve visited local merchants to see who could sponsor our event with donations for raffles and a silent auction. It has been interesting to shift my focus from ostomy empowerment and focus on a disease that affects so many people.

It was without hesitation that most shop owners gave generously and I’m excited to combine my love of gambling (well – my love for tossing dice with the gals) and my wish to help.

Expressions Boutique donated a special gift bag including a necklace with one of these adorable charms. Appealing to everyone from dog lovers and cancer survivors and their supporters, there was a charm for everyone in this selection.

I’m getting ready to Roll the Dice to Beat the Odds in Tempe on Sunday, April 14, 2013. It’s not too late to sign up!

Learn more about our upcoming event here.

I got a simple email from my dearest friend in the world. We’ve known each other since childhood and stay connected with quick texts and emails, never feeling any distance with time apart. She had a quote at the end of her email that expresses my belief that we all have the power to add positivity:

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” Anne Frank

This Glassybaby arrived in the mail from a couple other treasured friends. It came with a note that shared the added goodwill that was spread with the purchase of the lovely candle, and the warmth it has added to my life.

My Glassybaby obsession began 5 years ago when my friend gave me one for my birthday and I blogged about it back in 2008 under Great Gifts. These babies glow in my home renewing my senses and connecting me to cherished friends.

Share some light today.
