Celebrating the Ordinary Challenge – Day 7

No, I’m not delusional…I know better than most that we don’t have tomorrow; I wake up every day knowing that it is a gift. But we have the belief in tomorrow, the promise that another day holds: something new to explore or learn, a new friend to meet, time to write, laughter with family, and one day – someday soon, perhaps – tomorrow will be the day we find a cure. And that day before, it will have just been “tomorrow.”

Marie, thank you for this beautiful challenge. It has inspired so many of us to step back, serving as a refreshing change of pace from the world of cancer. And to everyone who has posted as part of the challenge…thank you as well! I have uncovered some new blogs, and learned more about so many who I’ve come to know. Is this group up for a challenge, or what???

    This group is definitely up for a challenge, Lori. That’s what’s so great about our blogging community of breast cancer sistahs. We step up to the plate, we support each other, and we celebrate the ordinary. xox

    I think next summer its time to challenge yourself to a Grand Canyon visit! Our second home (well it’s our 5th wheel RV parked for the summer) is in Williams AZ – starting point for the Grand Canyon Railway (www.thetrain.com).
