Almost July!

I better get busy and get another post in before June turns to July.  DH and I are flying to Anchorage, Alaska on Tuesday, and will spend 12 days in Alaska.  We have been before, but want to see some different things this time.  It is such a magnificent awe-inspiring place.  I sure wish by some miracle that Mt. McKinley would bring its head out of the clouds while we are there, but I understand sightings are rare, so it likely won't happen.  Anyway, I hope to have some good photos to share from time to time.

I have been working hard on a quilt that has a deadline on it, and with this trip, and another to follow this one, I am feeling pretty pressured, but will somehow get it done in time, and then after it is gifted, I will post pictures.  I also have another grandchild to feature, and will do that before too much more time passes.

Today was a Relay for Life in support of cancer survivors and to raise money for cancer research.  It is a very special event lasting 24 hours, because cancer never sleeps.  If I am not mistaken, it takes place in many cities.  As I have mentioned in previous posts, our DDIL was diagnosed with breast cancer last fall.  She has had surgery, chemo and radiation, and is now in remission.  She was at this Relay, and the pictures I have are of her and the two children.  Our son is a firefighter, and today was his day to work, so he missed out on the events.  We were privileged to spend some time at the Relay, and it was a very touching, poignant event.  A cure is desperately needed.

  2. LOVE the pics of Tonya and the kids. She's still on my prayer list for an always remission.
    Oh lucky you and Dick to be able to go to Alaska. In 12 days you two should be able to trek over that whole state. hahaha
    Have a fantastic time.

  3. The pictures were awesome. I am so thankful that she is in remission. I continue to pray for her and their family. Enjoy Alaska - hope you get to see Mt. McKinley!
