up with people!

Over the years I have found myself becoming more and more jaded. Thoughts such as "People are stupid!!!!!!!!" often flood my brain. Once saturation occurs, the words start leaking out of my mouth. (Oh hey, that sounds gross!!) Alright, maybe I took that analogy too far, but you know what I'm saying.

Recently, however, I am finding myself in awe on almost a daily basis. What I am seeing is a generosity and kindness in people, that I had thought was long gone. Friends and family are helping me spread the word. People that I thought would have only negative things to say about my journey, are being supportive. Some people are even spontaneously doing nice and helpful things to help my cause.

This morning I woke up to find a $100 donation from someone I don't even know!
My bank teller made a donation.
A graphic artist friend of a friend, made our fabulous new fighting kangaroo logo (don't you love the pink ribbon tattoo on his bicep??)
My husband is being the most wonderfully supportive man ever : )

The money I am working so hard to raise will all be going to the Susan G Komen foundation.
What I will gain from this experience, however, is priceless


  1. I love to hear the "happy" and "amazement" in your voice! Keep on trucking - you are doing awesome!!


  2. I find myself constantly touched and inspired by the generosity and support that I've seen so far, too. I'm pretty much a cynic, too, so this really has been a beautiful thing for me.
