Decorating Pottery Tiles


Tonight the kids and I went to the Pottery Patch to paint tiles for the Cure Kids Cancer Walk. The walk raises money for research and helps the Pediatric Cancer Foundation (www.fastercure.org) to fund the researches that will hopefully one day find a cure to all pediatric cancers. We did this last year (painted tiles) and Sierra helped in the painting. I missed her tonight and of course my tile was in her memory. I was among friends some whose children won their battles in Heaven, some who are off treatment, and some who are still in treatment. Whatever part of the journey we are one, we have the common bond of being a mother to a child with pediatric cancer. The bond we share is priceless and forever. We love each other and our children very much. We need each other despite what part of the journey we are on because the support we give each other means more than anything. It was great just to be in the room with them. I of course did not chatter too much as I was so engrossed in making my tile beautiful. It is not as beautiful as I would have wanted it to be but all in all not bad. Thank you Pediatric Cancer Foundation & Amanda for letting us be a part of this. The tiles we decorated will be presented as awards at the walk. I didn't do a team this year but hope to next year. I do plan to go and help in anyway I can. If you live in the Tampa area the walk will be held on September 13th in the Fishhawk Area at 7:30am. You can register and/or donate at www.fastercure.org.

Tomorrow night I start my griefshare class at the Crossings Church at 7pm. I am a little hesitant yet at the same time I feel good about going. I really feel God wants me to take this step in healing. I will post more about it tomorrow. Thank you all for the prayers and all the support. God bless you all!!

Please keep Sinjin in your prayers (www.caringbridge.org/visit/sinjinandrukates) he has a fever. Please pray the fever to break.

Thank you!!!
