However since it is for Leontien - a beautiful young blogger, who just lost her life on the 10th from melanoma I decided heck yah I'd do it - it would have been her 34th birthday today.
Why do we carry on for her - well she was so young. She married in 2008 and then discovered her cancer the same year.
She was a fighter. A lover of people. Courageous. She didn't get too down from what I can tell and she carried on. She had dreams and lived them in spite of her illness. I think she was a woman of courage.
Today we are supposed to do one Random Act of Kindness in her name.
I'm so behind like I said - but my daughter wants me to go with her, to take grandson to the eye doctor. I said no because I'm so busy, but I'll go - because she is the same age as Leontien and even when we fight and carry on - I love her dearly. Grandson is half day today and conferences are this afternoon, dinner with a friend tonight, and the dentist - it'll be a busy day. Oh yes, grocery shopping too! Just one day at a time sweet Jesus. I am going to breathe and enjoy!
I'm also going to bring in Kleenex, Clorex wipes, hand sanitizer, and soap to each of his teachers - they asked for that since everyone was so sick from before Christmas break and their supplies have run out.
So here's to you dear Leontein.
Do you know for Christmas she sent me a beautiful card and a $2 bill? I think to pass luck to me. Wow.
Flowers for Leontien.
