“Sometimes you have to sacrifice your performance for high heels.” -Gwen Stefani

9/15/13

High Heels

I walk slowly downstairs,

Holding close to the railing,

I meet up with her,

As she quickly signs the card,

We leave earlier,

So we won’t be late,

In case we get lost,

I tell her I made the wrong,

Shoe choice for today,

She laughs and she says,

She knew she shouldn’t have,

Worn high heels either,

But, she loves heels,

As we continue down the,

Highway,

To an outdoor wedding.

World Cancer Day 2014

February 4th is World Cancer Day.

A year ago today I launched my mother’s vision of bringing awareness to all cancers not just lung cancer which she was diagnosed. Today is a reminder that I am a living legacy and I can carry out her visions. I will continue to share her story and bring awareness.

It is also a reminder of the bravery and strength of not only my mom but, my young cousin Kailynne. I know that they both watch over me.

Today is for you both.
