Sorry I have been somewhat neglectful of the blog...I have been busy but haven't felt much was blog-worthy!
No, that is not me in my wedding dress above...my dress is actually quite different than either of those but I got to model in a charity fashion show tonight. SO much fun! I had complimentary hair and make-up done this afternoon and then got to strut my stuff-pool side-in two beautiful gowns. It was a great event for a fabulous cause! Which one is your favorite of the two?
I was touched by a girl about 8 years old who was also a model. She was timid at first until my friend (also a cancer survivor) and I went and talked to her (her hair was thinning severely from chemo, so we could tell she was a cancer patient) and her mom-they we standing alone and looked uncomfortable. I could tell that she was excited to know someone acknowledged her and had fought the same disease (so many of the other volunteer models were not cancer-related and walked right past them). Towards the end she gave me a 'good luck' and 'don't trip!' as I went onto the 'runway'. I was touched greatly!
Today, I am grateful for special experiences, fun opportunities and most of all-the support and love of friends, family and God.
