♥ I’m A Foster Parent

Yeap…as if 3 teenagers, and 2 large Labrador Retriever’s weren’t enough.  I am now a foster mom for my girlfriends dog, Brutus.  Brutus is an 8 year old Labrador mix, who loves to cuddle, take long walks along the beach and is rather frisky for his age.

I’m not sure how long Brutus will be with us, but for now, he is being loved up and spoiled.

♥ Remember

Remember, you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.  But the most important thing is, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.  xoxo  ♥ Wink

♥ My Dedication

This post is dedicated to all of the Melanoma patients, victims and survivors. It’s dedicated to the family, friends and co-workers who are your cheerleaders and number one fans. It’s dedicated to the people who are taking action against cancer by raising money, baking cookies or walking 5k in the rain to raise awareness and funds.  It’s dedicated to the scientist who spends endless hours testing thousands of samples in a lab hoping for one strain of a minuscule marine sponge can cure the agony of millions. It’s dedicated to an ordinary person who buys one single t-shirt for skin cancer awareness and unknowingly educates others about an awful disease.

Melanoma, or any other cancer, is a huge hurdle that forever changes your life.  Words can’t express how much strength, courage and bravery it must take to deal with all of the physical and emotional baggage that cancer brings. You are all heroes and today is the day we recognize your battle.  So here’s to you, Melanoma victim survivor, keep the fight alive and beat Melanoma… while beating the beat, of course.

I would like to wish all the great men out there a Happy Father’s Day!!  May your day be as ‘Fabulous’ as you are!!  xoxo  ♥  Wink

♥ What Cancer Cannot Do

Cancer is so limited…
It cannot cripple love.
It cannot shatter hope.
It cannot corrode faith.
It cannot eat away peace.
It cannot destroy confidence.
It cannot kill friendship.
It cannot shut out memories.
It cannot quench the spirit.
It cannot silence courage.
It cannot reduce eternal life.
