I have had the privilege of watching my dear friend Gillian walk through breast cancer with such dignity and grace. Her forever shining optimism in the midst of all the fear and all the pain was beautiful to watch up close. She taught me so much about courage and attitude. It’s all about your own thoughts and how you can direct them towards acceptance and healing. She did what needed to be done, one step at a time, and I am proud to say she is doing marvelously. This weekend she, Lisa, Chris and Nancy (not in photo) will be walking for breast cancer awareness……39 miles.
Our Tuesday Knitting Group Women in Recovery – Knitting for Recovery, “One Stitch at a Time” decided we wanted to do a fundraiser for the girls walking. We finished over 100 knitted washcloths and set up a booth at the annual Meiners Oaks Festival.
We had knitted washcloths and rubber duckies swimming around to the delight of everyone in our little community. It’s all the rage now:-) People were buying for gifts and for themselves. I think everyone owns one, even the men…… and they own them proudly……
Thank You to all the knitters who with joy knitted their little hearts out to help a friend.
Happy Walking Girls……”One Step at a Time”
