Once Upon A Time… (SOCS)

Once upon a time… I blogged solely to spread information as efficiently as possible and it turned into a place to dump my thoughts more often than not.  Lately this blog has been neglected as I focus on getting things back in order in my life. 

There has been less time spent on a computer {for fun} and more time spent in airports, airplanes, and hotels with bad internet connections.  I’ve been in Texas, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee since I last posted...  Spent about 8 hours on planes, nearly 12 hours in airports, and 16+ hours in cars.  I’m tired and my body aches trying to fight off something I probably picked up in the recirculated air on one of the planes.

But I’m happier and more stress free than I’ve been in such a long time. 

I will take the delays and endless hours spent reading in planes and hotel rooms over the crazy stress-filled existence I have lived since January any day.

Once upon a time I was hopeful, carefree, and happy… I’m finally getting back to that place once again!

We walk because we must.  We are strong because the journey demands it.  Together in body and united in spirit, we lay down our footsteps for this generation and the next.  This is our promise: a world without breast cancer.
