last year at this time our family probably wouldn’t have sat in front of the tv together watching this fundraiser.

i’m one of those people to your left or right.  i’m one of those people that you can stand up to cancer for.

hunter, miss d and emma‘s mamas all used to be disney girls with me.  hunter is the latest and greatest in my flock of lovely ladies who’ve donated their hair to locks of love.

i am so proud of you, hunter!  your mommy sure is raising you to be a wonderful person with a kind spirit and genuine thoughtfulness for others.  i love your new ‘do!

miss d’s dear friend just donated her shiny, golden tresses this week.  what a little doll she is!  here’s what her mama wrote to me:

“attached is a picture of my jenny. she is 7 years old and is great friends with darienne.  she decided a while a go she wanted to grow her hair and donate it (i didn’t even know she knew about it).  she was soooo excited to get it cut.  we went today and she was the star of the salon when she had them cut her hair.  her total was 11 inches of beautiful blond hair.  i watched her sleep the other night with her long, wavy blond hair on the pillow and almost cried since i knew it would soon be gone.  i did cry when she cut it today.  on the way home she said  she loved her new shorter cut and was so happy she could do this.  i was so proud of her.  she now has a sassy little bob that matches her personality!!  her grandma died 2 years ago from mantle cell lymphoma (at 69 years old) so i guess that may have been an influence on her, not to mention her aunt donated to locks of love as well.  good luck with your battlem  – keep on fighting!!!

— nancy”

nancy, thank you so much for your kind words. i’m so sorry for your family’s loss, and i am so deeply touched by your daughter selfless act of giving and generosity.  i know how proud you are of her, please let her know that i am, too!

we know roy always knew the way. he’s made his final bus run and we’re all missing him terribly.  we love you roy and will forever hear your laughter in our hearts.

for my disney friends, please imagine roy is bus driver bob and the doodlebops are actually leads singing and dancing in all their striped, flashlight wielding glory.  much love to you all.

for my other readers, your kids will like this if they don’t already.

 

 

one last thing.

a scholarship fund has been created in roy’s memory to benifit students at luther high school south in chicago.  luther south is a private christian school roy attended grades seven through twelve and as an alumni supported the school for many years.

roy touched so very many lives and i hope in this small moment he’s touching your heart.  please consider giving, even if only a dollar or two.

candy girl, you’re off for some summer fun and we won’t get to wish you farewelll in person.  have a safe trip and lots of fun.  nugget will be anxiously awaiting her postcard!  we’ll miss you tons!

i’ll get my cbc results today, so check back for a follow up post with that info. 

nugget and i are at my parents so i can go make the final selections today for the new house.  i’m finally feeling pretty good.  the pain killer that i got for my jaw is making a huge difference.  more on that too later, when i’m not on dial-up.   grrrr.

one last final tidbit before i hang up, i’m going to have my very own locks of love hair drive!  i’ve already had my first volunteer donate.  she’ll be getting a shiny blog post of her very own as soon as her mommy sends me a photo for it.  i am soooo proud of her and can’t wait to show off her new haircut to you all.  what a great big thing for a little girl to do.  i hope you, your friends and family will join us!  if you do, please include a note about my drive in your donation form to locks of love.  be sure to check with your salon or stylist when you make your appointment because most of them will do your donation hair cut & style for free!

two amazing friends of mine are championing two amazing causes.  what can you do to help?  how about donating ten dollars?  no?  what about just five?  two?  one?  what about spreading their word on your blog?

thanks, i knew you could help!  now i can add one more amazing friend to my list.
