Baseball Time!

Why is it when you have family from out-of-town drive 650 miles to watch your son

play baseball it is the worst game of the year??? LOL!!! At least we all got to spend some time together! Mom made me feel better by telling me that when my brother was little, Grandma and Grandpa Mynatt drove all the way up to Indiana and he sat on the bench the entire time! I just wanted to share a picture of my baseball player!
I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend! We had nothing but good times! Thanks for stopping by our blog!

Best 36th Birthday Ever!

Yesterday was the best day ever! Thank you to all my friends and family who called me and made the day special. My day at work was very busy, but went very smoothly (that's a big gift right there!). My husband, who rocks, sent me the most beautiful flower bouquet. I got calls from friends and family from a far. I got to end the evening at the Denton's house with my euchre club friends. Trish made me a delicious chocolate cake and Chris Denton serenaded us with his guitar. It was the perfect ending to a great day. Thank you! It really meant a lot to me!

I want to shout-out "Happy Birthday" today to my cousin Mike in Branson, MO! Check out his website here.

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the death of Alese Coco. Her incredible life was cut short by complications from Hodgkin's Disease. She was as beautiful on the inside as she was on the outside. The entries on her blog are some of the most inspirational words that I have ever read. She had an incredible spirit and belief in God. I followed her blog and prayed for her for about a year before she passed away.
Fight2Win was Alese's mantra. Her family has spent the past year setting setting up the Fight2Win campaign. Their mission is a 100% cure rate of Hodgkin's Lymphoma. This will be accomplished through research that focuses on Hodgkin's Disease. The research will be initially completed at the Alese Coco Hodgkin's Research Laboratory at Columbia University. They also have the goal to provide a support network for patients diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma. That is something that I would have benefited from greatly when I was undergoing treatment. Click HERE to read Alese's blog.
Please say a prayer for Alese's family today. This is a very difficult day, but also a promising time as they are finally able to move forward this incredible campaign. Please consider donating to this cure. There are so many young people that have Hodgkin's Disease. They went through treatment just like I did, however, they haven't made it to remission. Jennifer Willey is continuing her battle everyday. Click HERE to read her last blog entry. Please pray for strength and peace for her.
My birthday is coming up soon! Help me celebrate by considering a donation to Fight2Win. I will continue to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, but I will also start donating my card sales to . Thanks for reading my blog today and reading about something that is very important to me!
