Dear Pair of Ducks Knitting blog,
I am so SORRY that I am totally lame and have not updated in over a month. I really like you, I’ve just been really busy. It seems when I focus on one area of my life (lately getting healthy) other things that I love start to slip. I am trying to learn balance. Please be patient with me.
In other news, I have discovered that I have a love for walking. I decided to marry that love to another love I have, charity! I am participating in the Douglas County Cancer Relay for Life. On June 12th, me and my teammates will walk all night long for your donations. One member of our team has to be on the track all night long and walking! It’s going to be a lot of fun, and also it will do a lot of good. Cancer blows. In January, we lost Burton’s grandfather to cancer. He was a really strong, vibrant octogenarian until cancer, that had been in remission for a few years, started to take over him like a wildfire. Fortunately, he did not languish for years in pain like some do and passed away within a matter of months. But NO ONE deserves to lose a loved one to cancer. No one deserves to have a sick mother, father, sister, brother, child, or friend dying of cancer. We have the means to further research through our donations. Please consider donating to my Cancer Relay for Life effort. We never know what the future holds, it could be your donation that furthers treatment or even finds the cure. Thank you!
