Another year

It was that time of year again, our annual Relay for Life. I think I did an all time high for me this year. I walked 4 1/2 miles for the American Cancer Society. We always spend the night and I think I am more sore from laying on the ground than I am from the walking. Anyway, we had a good time as always. It's funny, some of the people on our team we only see once a year, but we always pick up like it was last week. We are all there because Cancer has affected our lives one way or another. My favorite part is cheering our walkers as they pass our site and counting their laps.
When you are out there walking you have lots of time to think, especially when you are walking after dark and all the luminaries are glowing in remembrance of people who lost their fight as well as those who fought the fight and won. This is another favorite time of the day. When we celebrate all the survivors. They all get a dove to release and then they walk a lap together.
I guess what I am getting at is don't forget to tell someone how much they mean to you cause you never know. God bless all you.
