Paying it forward for a cause: 60 miles in 3 days
"I am only one, but still I am one; I cannot do everything, but still I can do something;
And just because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do."
-Edward E. Hale

"A national philanthropic trust project"

This post in dedicated to my friend Becky
and all those who are survivors, fighters and those we have lost to Breast Cancer.
I know this post is not about animals in need, but Becky's mom did adopt two cats from me and Becky has 2 rescued cats, if that counts:)

There is a song by Reba McEntire called "Everyday People", it is about those who care enough to make a difference. 
Becky is one of those people.
Everyday people are the ones who are making miracles..   
And we need a miracle to cure breast cancer!!!  

The picture above is Becky last year at the 3 day.
I LOVE this picture of her!!!  
It captures her love of life... and that she is, living large and loving life, friends, family and every moment!!
We all have our causes that are near and dear to our hearts.  
You all know what mine is:)
But I do try to pay forward kindnesses given to me and this is one I hope you will help support. 
Becky and her husband Doug have been huge supporters of me and what I do, so now it is time for me to return the favor.
Breast Cancer is something that affects so many and most people have a loved one, with breast cancer, know someone who has had it or know someone that it has affected and is no longer with us.
Becky has walked this walk before and is doing it again.  60 miles in 3 days.  
All I can say is it takes an amazing spirit of heart and dedication to the cause, to walk the distance.  I get winded going to my mail box or chasing the puppies:)
Becky and her team "The Wonder Bra Barbies", are in training for this national walk and I hope you will help support her and her team in their efforts to raise money for the cure or support someone in your area for this cause.  To donate just click HERE.  I donated and made my dedication to my friends Patricia Zoline and Kelly Snelling, so their names will be written on the shirt Becky will be wearing during the walk.
If you have any reservations, please watch these videos I am sure it will inspire you, to walk for the cause or support it.  
The energy and power of people coming together, is something that cannot be explained, but must be experienced.
No matter how small the donation, it all adds up in the end to something huge!!
If you live in the Boston area and want to join her team, let me know and I will put you in touch with her.

Becky you are my friend and my hero and I love you!!!
Since I'm being so gushy today, I want you all to know I appreciate and love all of you that visit my blog:)
Dog post later tonite...
