I believe everything happens for a reason. Good or bad, it’s meant to be. It may be hard to understand in the moment, but as time goes on, the event that caused you happiness or pain seems to make sense in the big picture.
Another one of my beliefs is that God does not give you more than you can handle. (Also refer to the last sentence in the above paragraph). No matter what I have been faced with, I try to reflect and have appreciation that someone is experiencing some greater hardship than I and “this too shall pass.”
So, where am I going with this? For the second year, I am participating in the American Cancer Society‘s Relay for Life. “Two for Two” as I like to call it, because this year I am involved in two events. One in New Kent, VA and one in Romeoville, IL. The first is happening on June 2nd in Virginia. I will be doing it with my aunt in memory of her aunt (my great-aunt) and my grandpa (her dad) who both died from cancer last year.
The second event is on June 30th in Romeoville with my teammates: the Donating Divas…and Dudes. As part of our fundraising efforts, we are sponsoring a Candlelight Bowl in Joliet, IL on Saturday, April 28th. Let’s “Strike” Out Cancer! Couples tickets are $50 and includes bowling, shoe rental, and food. It’s hardly possible these days to have a date night or girls night out under $50 and help a great cause! Check out the attached flyer for more details: Donating Divas…and Dudes Candlelight Bowl.
Remember, whatever your pain, whatever your sorrow, you are here. Remember those who no longer can feel anything. Thank you for your support and God Bless!
