This day happens once every four years.
We can all either run forward,
take the Leap!
Tonight, this gives me reason to pause,
People that have touched my life,
Places that I have been able to visit,
moments that are forever etched in my heart.
Tonight, there are friends that are rejoicing as they welcome a new child into their family.
I have other friends, that are praying for a miracle.
I know others that are mourning the loss of a loved one.
This week has been particularly rough for me.
Through it all, one thing above all resonates with in me...
Four years ago,
I had no Pink Family.
Weeks like this week, would be unbearable if it were not for the loving support of this Pink Family that I have been so blessed to become part of.
So even as we Rejoice, Pray and Shed Tears
We do so as a Family and with Support.
We no longer are left alone to face these moments.
There is a Voice to Sing Praise, Hands to Pray
a Shoulder to Cry on...
In the words of a Friend, "Anne"...
"Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened."
No matter where you are tonight...
I hope you feel love surrounding you...
