Welcome to Friday Fragments, the brainchild of Mrs. 4444 at Half-Past Kissin' Time! This is a place to gather your thoughts for the week, spit them out, and forget about them! Enough said!
Chicago's Burbs are hopping with school buses and long lines of half-asleep teens! I've been walking the dog every morning to empty streets and quiet neighborhoods for about two months. I had no idea there were so many kids in my little neck of the woods! It's great to see them out, and hopefully, they are happy to be out, as well!
I've been meeting some terrific people lately who have amazing stories to tell. I am in awe of how some people have worked so hard to overcome the hiccups and major explosions in their lives...and can share about it with such dignity and eloquence. Their stories are not mine to tell, but nevertheless, I am inspired daily by their honesty and hope for better tomorrows. No, I am not talking about the RNC that just ended! These are everyday people who welcome the opportunity to make anothers day just a little brighter!
I'd like to leave you with something to pass on to friends and family. September is Childhood Cancer Awareness month. Its symbol is a gold ribbon. Stand Up 2 Cancer is holding a live fundraising effort, for which you have probably seen many commercials. All Cancer is bad! But it is heartbreaking bad when children are affected. Please get the word out, wear a gold ribbon throughout the month, and pray for the kids, the families and friends who are all vigilant warriors for this cause. God Bless you!
