My Humbling Experience

Yesterday I had the most humbling experience I have had in a long time. I volunteered to work at the Susan G Komen survivors luncheon. I have a friend that organized the raffle and needed volunteers to help with it. I said yes without even knowing what I would be doing.
So yesterday morning I found myself surrounded by the most amazing women, women who have fought a battle and have won. They are warriors to the highest degree, amazing, strong women. What struck me as I watched them, was that cancer, not age, is the great equalizer. It knows no age, no ethnicity, has no socio economic boundaries. I saw women of every age, size, shape and color there, and they were all beautiful. You could see their souls shinning through, their warrior spirits were in attendance, one could see it in their eyes, their demeanor, they had faced the worst and they had won.
I am truly humbled to have been in such presence, so much so I have volunteered for the next even, the Plano race. I am going to drive a golf cart, so excited. I do this in part to honor Sandi’s memory, and in part to celebrate my friend Wanda’s triumph over the disease.
I have always found myself in the presence of truly great women, I don’t know why God chooses to give me these influences in my life, I am just grateful He does.
God is good, He is ever-present in my life, I am unapologetically a Christian, I am not going to water that down for anyone. I don’t feel I have to, I don’t ask anyone else to water down their religious beliefs, so they in turn should not want me to. I will pray before meals, I will ask Him for forgiveness for my trespasses and I will praise Him for the good things in my life. I will continue to ask Him to tell all that I love that have preceded me home that I said Hey.
So, today I ask Him to tell Sandi I said Hey
