It's All about Showing Up

Some have talked the talk and some have walked the walk. 

There is also something to be said about Running the Run. There are any number of events that raise awareness, generate financial contribution and bring community together to support an individual or collective in need. There is power- and fun in showing up.
This year, thanks to my son Griffin and his friends who signed up for ACS Relay for Life at Unionville, HS on June 8 & 9th, and my friend Kathy Hrenko who's coordinating the event, 
I have decided to show up and take a lap with other survivor's.

I will also be there with wings, wishes on wings that is, signing and selling Butterfly Kisses books to benefit American Cancer Society.
