St. Peregrine pray

Cancer is limited ...
It cannot cripple love, It cannot shatter hope, It cannot corrode faith, It cannot eat away peace, It cannot destroy confidence, It cannot shut out memories It cannot silence courage, It cannot invade the soul, It cannot reduce eternal life, It cannot quench the spirit, It cannot lessen the power of the Resurrection.

Relay for Life

The big boy and I did another Relay for Life friday night and had a great time. He was very excited to see his teacher during the walk and talked the whole time to her. The beautiful wife and little angel eyes didn't make it this year unfortunately. The beautiful wife does not support anything like this so it is always just me out there. It was so awesome seeing all of the families together throughout the night having such good times that I kept getting upset when I thought about it. I registered as a survivor and recieved a shirt and purple ribbon to wear for the survivor lap and the beautiful wife explained to me for the second year in a row that I'm not really a survivor, which I don't think of myself as a survivor as I had my cancer removed during lunch one day and never recieved chemo, I am one of the very lucky ones. I only register as a survivor so the statistical numbers for beating this disease are better. Throughout the whole walk I thought about all of the loved ones affected by cancer. Four days later I am still in a funk and not happy with the beautiful wife. I am planning on forming a team next year for the walk as well as staying the whole time. I will be looking for ideas to raise some money for the organization throughout the year. Hope all the mothers had a great day and felt all the love and caring they deserve.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest.

Long time no post. I'm still alive and finally took a nice and easy weekend to slow things down. We did make the trip to south Florida last month for Easter and had a great time, took 20 hours to drive down on good Friday which will never happen again. We didn't even make it out of Georgia the first day after 10 hours on the road. So we didn't get to do anything on the trip I was hoping for except to see family which was great. When we arrived home, I had a terrible sinus infection for a whole week and then some kind of other sickness that tore my insides apart. Then the following weekend the beautiful wife gets a terrible kidney infection and ends up in the ER in the middle of the night Saturday. Meds are helping now and until this weekend, our house is getting back into a nice relaxing mode again.

I haven't had a run in ever but finally got out Saturday morning for an easy 4 miles. The run was great and enjoyed all the sweat. My foot has been bothering me since the run but I think it will be fine, just going to take it easy and keep an eye on it. My whole family will be coming up for my brothers graduation from college here in town and then the beautiful angel eyes will be getting baptized in the catholic church that same day. Can't wait to have the family in town and spend some time with them.

Hope everyone is doing well and those running in races are enjoying themselves while they go for their goal.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest!
