Passionate

Are YOU passionate? I AM PASSIONATE!

I am passionate about many things: my kids, my husband, my parents, my photography, and raising awareness for breast cancer research and education.

At some point in everyone’s life, they will be touched by someone who is diagnosed with breast cancer. Will it be you? Your mother, sister, daughter, or friend?

For me it is my “big sister”, Martha. She is a warrior, a fighter, a SURVIVOR. She is an inspiration.

This past Saturday, Irrigon High School hosted a Varsity Double Duel Volleyball tournament dedicated to raise breast cancer awareness and education while raising funds for breast cancer research. The “Pink Out” Sharing the Awareness day was filled with fun activities (including four exciting volleyball games), educational contests, and a tribute to breast cancer survivors from each of the four communities involved.

It was AMAZING!

Yes, I am passionate. I am passionate about making sure girls are educated about early detection. I am passionate about raising money to help find a cure. I am passionate about honoring the strength and courage of the survivors in our lives.

I am Passionately Pink for the Cure.

    I loved how you started it with tellimg things you are passionate about – makes me think!!

  3. Just yesterday I re-read one of my favorite quotes from Maya Angelou…”Some of the things I know, I know only because older women have told me their secrets. I have lived and am living long so that I can tell my secrets to younger women. That’s the reason we women go on improving.”

    I am passionate about the passionate young women I had the privilege to help mold as they were growing up…Amy and Erika…and Amy’s hero Martha. These women will tell you that I am passionate about many things…LIFE and LIVING LIFE, righting wrongs, correcting or preventing injustices, never, ever forgetting that this world INCLUDES me, but doesn’t REVOLVE around me.

    I learn everyday from older women, but just as much from younger women. I only hope I can teach as much as I learn….

    Today’s lesson….LIVE everyday with no regrets. Ask yourself as you fall asleep “what have I done today to make me or someone else proud? Who did I help today? Who will remember something I did or said today.” Even if the answer is “just me”, it was a great day.

    just mom
