Bye Bye RoadrunnersUSA.com
Today was sort of sad in a way, but also the right thing and the right timing. Today I decided to let go the website I put together right after Steven was diagnosed. We did this fundraiser - somewhere around 11 000 miles from Tennessee to Alaska and back, to try to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. We had an incredible time, the people we met are still embedded deeply in my heart and its a trip I will never forget for so many reasons.
But, it's time to let the site go. Those very intense, terrifying days have passed and now my days are more like those beautiful colored pieces of glass one finds on the beach sometimes, with rounded edges and the sun making them glint. I am ok in letting this go now, but am putting it on this blog so that I have a record of what it looked like.
In no way was it a professional website but it was my first. And I guess the first of anything always holds a special place in one's heart - this one especially so.
Those were incredible days - terrifying, alive and so amazingly full of love, so intense, so aware and deep.. I wonder if there is a way to be so alive without some horrible diagnosis getting there first?
And once more, Thank You to everyone that was there for us in those days as well as these. Penny was such a part of that journey - I miss her. I have so many wonderful memories from that time... and a deep and wonderful gratitude.
Love and Light
oh well - only half of it will fit into the blog - but thats ok....it's enough to remind me :)
