A Serendipitous Moment

Today's Mom's birthday. I really miss her. I was taking some photos of my kitty cat this morning, feeling comfort in my love for photography when the letter carrier arrived scaring poor Pearl as the mail came through my mail box. As I went through the mail, I had a serendipitous moment when I came across two pieces of mail. First, a beautiful RAK from my dear friend Diane, Prima scrapbooking flowers! Thanks Diane, these couldn't have arrived on a better day!

I then notice a letter from the BC Cancer Agency. When I read the president and CEO of the BC Cancer Foundation, Douglas Nelson's message that one day, all cancers will be manageable, rather than life-threatening illnesses and that based on the tremendous advances in cancer care and research being made at the BC Cancer Agency,  he is confident that that day is just around the corner, it reminded me of how so very important it is to donate and I thought to myself what better gift could I give on this day, my mom's birthday than my own contribution to this wonderful cause. It then inspired me to take the following photos and share with you all again, the amazing video that my dear friend Sue made for all those fighting this terrible disease and dedicated to my mom Eileen. Please consider donating. I truly believe and pray, that one day, we will all live in a world without this horrible disease devastating our family and friend's lives.
My RAK (random act of kindness) from Diane. Thanks again Diane, I love them!
Mom's little lilac tree and our little Buddha covered in snow who watches over her. This little tree was planted in memory of my mom and is loved and cared for and will be a familiar post on my blog as it grows into it's own beautiful tree.
I received this gorgeous handmade card from Sue yesterday with some beautiful comforting thoughts. Thank you so much my friend. I am so blessed to have you in my life. And, thank you to all my dear friends who called, texted and sent emails reminding me of how lucky I am to have such wonderful friends who truly care. I love you all!

Here is the link to Sue's video A Shave for the Warriors.

Big hugs to you dear Friend, you have been in my thoughts all day.

I am glad the card arrived in time. The photo of the Buddha and the lilac is wonderful. I too, will make a donation today. I truly believe that cancer will soon be a manageable disease.
