2012 has started out a little rough. Health issues and some other challenges have made this year interesting.
I decided to select a word that I want to focus on and incorporate into my life. That word for 2012 is SIMPLIFY. Each time I think of doing something or purchase something I want to think of this word. Will it simplify my life or make it more complicated. When I think of the word Simplify I think of organization, easy, carefree, and less stress. Well I can dream can’t I?
I am volunteering again this year for Relay for Life. I am the Co-Chair for Survivors with one of my dearest, life long…and do I mean life long friend Shelley Hinatsu. (I have known her since we were babies and since I am five months older that means I have known her since the day she was born). I Relay for a lot of different reasons, the main reason is in Memory of my Dear, Sweet Mom who passed away from Cancer in 2006. I still miss here everyday. I also Relay for my Aunt Sandi – several friends and co-workers. Our local Relay for Life is June 23rd. We are planning a Dessert for Survivors and Care Givers on Saturday, April 14th at Gateway Presbyterian Church from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. Invitations will be going out but if you know of a survivor in The Dalles area pass along the word to them and have them contact me. We are looking for volunteers to help with this dessert so if you are interested or know someone who might be contact me.
