Look Well To This Day

“Look well to this day, for it is life, the very life of life.

In it lies all the realities and verities of existence: the bliss of growth, the glory of action, splendor of beauty.

For yesterday is but a dream, and tomorrow only a vision.

But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness and every tomorrow a vision of hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day, for it and it alone is life!

Such is the salutation of the dawn.”

The Journey Continues

There isn't a card to post today, just a very happy story to tell you all...

Yesterday was the BIG kick off to the PINKy Promise Rockstars 2nd journey for the Susan G Komen's 60 Miles in 3 Days Walk to find a cure for breast cancer.  My daughter Misty has wanted to do this walk for so many years; after many friends have fought and some who lost their fight against this dreaded disease.  Misty and her walking partner Rayna (PINKy Promise Rockstars, name of their team) had to raise $2,300. each to do the walk.  They walked the 2009 Komen 60 miles in 3 days in Atlanta, Ga.  At the end of that walk, they were already planing ahead for this year's walk.  Only changing the location from Atlanta, Ga. to Tampa, Fl.  You see, Misty had decided if need be, she & Rayna (and if anyone else who wants to!) will do this walk in a different community each year!!

The 1st fundraiser for this year's walk was held today...A BIG Smoked Boston Butt sale.  Toby (my step-son), his father-in-law Larry & neighbor John woke up extremely early to ready 3 big and 1 x-big smokers for the day. The lady of the home Linda (where this all took place), graciously had a yummy breakfast casserole ready for all to enjoy.  Thank you Linda!  Randy & I picked up 104 fresh Boston Butts at 8 this morning and rushed them all out to the ready grills.  After about 6 hours of smoking they were ready for pick-up and delivery.  All 104 Boston Butts were sold and the calls came in about the wonderful yummy favor the Boston Butts had.  As the day was done and there were some very tired family & friends.  Misty was very happy about the great big deposit they  had coming to make toward her their goal of $4,600.
John, Larry and Bill stand "guard" over the smokers!

 The Boston Butts are on the grill, now it's time to kick back and enjoy the 
day while the meat smokes!

A very special thank you goes out to all that helped in making this fundraising 
event be such a wonderful success! Now onto the next event...

Thanks for stopping by & until next time...Debbie
