Today is the day of our Light the Night walk. I’m a little nervous, I recall doing a run for breast cancer a few years ago and finding the group atmosphere very emotional. Only this time, it’s me in the midst of the journey with cancer and everyone around me is walking to help families like ours. I’m allowing myself to be an emotional mess. There are times when the uncertainty of the situation become a little overwhelming. My babies tend to fill those moments with mundane wonderfulness; such as Evie crumbling into a red, tear faced mess over me putting her juice in the wrong cup and baby bel impressively exploding from her nappy…Boom! I escape into those moments and any fear of uncertainty is zapped. Today, unless the babies see it fitting to fill the moment with a little zap, we will be facing our challenge and be surrounded by support and love.
As cliché as it sounds, the world is full of so much kindness and beauty.Sometimes through the blur of politics, war, finance and fear mongering, it’s easy to lose sight of it. Thank you to everyone who has sponsored our walk and showered us in love and support. Every message, donation and thought has brought a smile to our faces.
With everyone’s help, we’ve raised $2400 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. How awesome is that! From the bottom of my heart, thank you.
