Each Mother’s Day, for the last several years, we Race for the Cure at the Mall of America and yesterday was no different. Though it always seems to start out in a bit of a hassle, in the end I think we are pretty pleased and happy with ourselves for doing it. Well at least I am, and I am very thankful that my OH, daughter, son-in-law and grandson join in with me in my support for ‘the cure’. Breast Cancer is an awful disease and has touched just about everyone I know in one way or another.
Part of our ‘team’ getting ready for the walk.
Getting placards in place.
I am all set.
Though the subject is dead serious, people can still have fun! There is a very upbeat atmosphere for the most part.
It is over before you know it and it is photo op time!
Before leaving we always stop by a pond for a few reflective moments which never fails to bring tears to my eyes. It is filled with memories of loved ones lost to this disease.
We do NOT lose sight of why ‘WE WALK’!
Pats on the back to all for a job well done and heading out to meet the rest of the day. We celebrate Mother’s on this day….we celebrate life… we celebrate ourselves!
We live, We love, WE WALK!
