We were to wear pink to church this past weekend in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness …
Pink clothing is obviously slim pickin’s for the males in my house but we made it happen.
I had to explain many times to my boys why they were wearing pink and whom we were wearing it for. Talking about Breast Cancer is foreign to me … it hasn’t (thankfully) affected my life as other diseases have, such as ALS, Alzheimer’s, and Lung Cancer. And it is even more foreign to little boys … but they were totally all for supporting the survivors and helping bring awareness.
For 24 hours, they wore their pink… that was their idea. At first, I just kept commenting on how cute they looked in this color but as they day went on I was touched, humbled, and full of prayer and thanksgiving each time I looked at them.
At church, I was given a pink flower and after we came home I often found my boys looking at the flower, smelling it and gently touching the pedals …
I hope that if this blog post reaches anyone who has been affected by Breast Cancer, may God bless you! And hopefully this will be a little reminder to everyone else to be aware and to be proactive in early detection. Our love to you!
