Life is too short to wake up with regrets. Love the people who treat you right & forget the ones who don't! Believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance--take it. If it changes your life--let it. Nobody said life would be easy. They just promised it would be worth it.---Author Unknown

2009 JDRF WALK to Cure Diabetes
Our 2009 JDRF WALK to Cure Diabetes was September 12. A big THANK YOU to all those who made donations. Our team raised $1,225 towards finding a cure.
Our faithful volunteers--I was excited to be a part of your group this year.

Shamae and I were in charge of collecting items, selling tickets, and manning the table. I was even nominated to call out the numbers for the winners. That'll get you out of your comfort zone real quick!
The official numbers aren't in, but I heard that our city raised close to $30,000!
