Finally!! An update!!
Well, where do I start? It has been so cold and rainy here all winter/spring. Ian really tires of it. In April, Jaredand I went to California with ALL of Jared's family!! There was 18 of us total and we had a great time! The weather was PERFECT! ! Our coldest day was 68 degrees! It was heavenly. We got home and froze. I'm done with school for the summer, and enjoying my time off. I was talking to my sister Lyda last week and she was getting things together for her Relay for Life to do a BBQ. I was asking her about it and she told me how much fun it is, and encouraged me to do it, I of course told her that I didn't know what I was doing. She then said look online for relays in Cache County- she's so smart. I got the mans email address and sent him a note, that was about 1130 Thursday night. When I woke up Friday I had emails from the 2 in charge of the Relay here on July! So, I am now the captain of the team... Together We Can...Huntin' for a CURE!! I 'm so excited!! I have had so much support from my family and friends. This weekend we are going to Moroni for a neices birthday and. we are doing our first fundraiser - a BAKE SALE! My very supportive sister-in-law got her friends and neighbors to bake goodies and donate them to us. Our team goal is only $1000.00, but seems doable. Something that has really touched my heart is I was asked why I Relay? I asked myself why I wanted to do it, and the only thing I can come up with is, what if? What if that was my husband, my daughter, or son, my mother or father? But it was my Boppa, my granny, my Aunt Serri, my cousin Kevin. And the many others that have fought the fight, some were able to survive and other's weren't, that's why I'm doing it so everyone is able to survive and be with the ones that love and miss them so much. To all that have been fighting, is why I'm relaying!!
