Though my mother is no longer with me here on earth she continues to walk by my side daily and is always in my heart and mind.  I gave her, her flowers while she was here on earth and I would like to believe that this message in my blog continues the giving.

I set down at my computer not to write about my events of yesterday but to honor my mother today but while writing to her I suddenly felt compelled to write about my recent experience.

Mothers & All Women Should Be Honored

Its early morning Mother’s Day 2013 I’m stiff sore and tired from doing my part in the EIF Los Angeles Revlon Run/Walk on Saturday morning.  My trusty partner in crime gets on this band wagon every year to push me along my sure.  I’ve always felt that if women can fight daily while going through their fight with cancer I can surely do a 5K in honor of the survivors and the lovely ladies that have succumb to this horrible disease.

I do this annually for many people who I have known and many unknown, I wish I could say that this disease has not touched my life personally but as we all know it’s so wide-spread that most cannot stake that claim.  Throughout my life time I have lost an aunt, cousin, friend to my husband and most recent my mother in law, it has been several years since she passed on.  I honor her and my other loved ones and will continue to do so by being a participant in helping with the cure.

While listening to the speeches and watching all the smiling faces along with the flow of confetti as we start the event it truly makes me smile and brings thoughts of my aunt that is a survivor.  This strong determined women continues to work, travel and enjoy life due to the wonderful research that has been done with the funds that are raised by the run/walk and other events and organizations efforts.

I’ll have to wrap up for now because I’m finding that this article is stirring up some emotions that I just was not ready for or expecting to arise…..

Happy Mother’s Day to all the ladies in my life (you’re all mother’s in some shape form or fashion), past and present you’ve all played a major part in shaping and forming me into who I am today, Thank you!
