Hopetober 2017 – Breast & Cancer Awareness Month

Hopetober 2017 is inspired this year by the autumn hues of goldenrod and burnt orange, in addition to the pink associated with breast cancer. Unlike Hopetober 2016 that saw one new breast cancer addition in my life circle, this year’s inventory includes 6 individuals with different types of cancers, 3 others with breast cancer, 2 with […]

Celebrating Six Decades in the Land of the Living

I love the LORD, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came upon me; I was overcome by trouble and sorrow. Then I […]

Hopetober 2016 – Breast Cancer Awareness Month

My favorite announcements are those made up of autumn’s foliage. One quick read broadcasts in vibrant ‘Printer’s Ink’ that October has arrived! It’s enough to cause sensory overload.

Hopetober Reigns – Breast Cancer Awareness Month

In last year’s breast cancer awareness post, October was forever re-named in my mind when I happened to christen it Hopetober (just click the title for the link). One year later I find it still fits, for hope does not go out of style. Or need. A lot of life has happened in the year […]
