Celebrating Pink in October
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – today, most of us know someone close who is affected by breast cancer. It is a very sobering diagnosis that not only affects many women, but also those they love. As I prepare for the week I have prepared a pink tea and Country Living Fair inspired post.
We celebrate those who have demonstrated amazing courage and who have conquered this disease as well as endeavor to encourage those facing this illness.
Pink for Breast Cancer
Awareness includes knowing that we don’t have to solve this problem for those facing cancer – it is encouraging to them to know you’re there – that you care – that you’re available to them.
As I prepare for the week – which includes planning out my trip at the end of the week to the Country Living Fair – I think of the wonderful inspiring ladies that I will meet – we need to thoroughly enjoy and rejoice with one another – each day is to be special.

Looking forward to the future…
I look forward to each day. I often share that everyone we come into contact with is facing someone – so always be kind. It is so easy to spread kindness and hope. Be encouraging to someone today – you don’t have to have the right words to say – just let them know you care. We all look forward to the day that Cancer will have a cure – I believe that day will come! So, for today – be positive, be an encourager and remember to be kind!
