Walking, Part 2

My mom’s not a huge fan of crowds but she wanted to do this walk.  She didn’t want to stay for the closing ceremonies or anything like that.  She said walking together was her celebration, so that’s just what we did.

Three generations, riding the Light Rail at the wee hours…HOW AWESOME DOES MY MOM LOOK?!?!

Sisters

“Bebe’s Girls” (team name…)

This year we’ll stay right…

A sea of thousands of people affected by cancer in one way or another…aka, thousands upon thousands of STORIES!

A dude dressed as Pink Panther…he even had a British accent (not that PP ever talks, but whatever…)

A pom squad cheering us on…

“Give me a B!  Give me an O!  Give me another O!  Give me another B!”

Thank you to the Denver Police Department for blocking off traffic throughout the city in order for us to walk together!

Here, Em and I stopped.  I said, “Do you see all those people walking?  Look ahead of you, behind us, all around.  Do you know why they are all walking?  They are walking because their lives have been affected by breast cancer.  Every single person here has been affected by it, whether in their own body, as a friend, spouse, parent, child, sister, cousin, aunt, co-worker, grandparent…every. single. person. and they all have a story.”

“I’m not saying that I have this all together, that I have it made. But I am well on my way, reaching out for Christ, who has so wondrously reached out for me. Friends, don’t get me wrong: By no means do I count myself an expert in all of this, but I’ve got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I’m off and running, and I’m not turning back.” The Message, Philippians 3:12-14

Front Row: Young Bevy Girls in the making…knowing the importance of time with other women and showing support!  Nice job, girls!

My mom is a strong, loving, and selfless woman.  I have a lot to learn from her.  I’m really proud of her and so grateful we were able to walk WITH her today!
