Awareness

Making awareness bracelets and donating 20% to foundations that research cures or provide support seemed to me to be a worthwhile endeavor – and it is.  BUT… as is so often the case, in trying to provide a service/product for others, I find that I am the one on the receiving end.

What I’ve found is that each bracelet has a story.  Each bracelet touches someone’s life – and that life touches mine.  The stories are sometimes heartbreaking; sometimes victorious, but each one becomes part of my life.

I thought about making a list on paper of people that I wanted to remember; people who could use positive thoughts and/or prayer.  Instead, I decided to put the list here so that others might also send their loving, positive thoughts and prayers for the people who are represented by some of the bracelets.
