Today’s event is being hosted by Kim of Cravings of a Lunatic and Jen of Juanita’s Cocina. They teamed up with their blogger friends to help raise awareness and support for Cancer and Hospice today in memory of Kim’s dad. We encourage everyone to read the posts and share their own experiences with cancer. We also would like to encourage everyone to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society, the American Cancer Society and also to the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association. Hospice was a key element during Kim’s father’s battle with cancer. They made it possible for Kim to care for him at home. So please show your support and donate if you can. You can also contact your local Hospice and donate directly to them if you wish. A little goes a long way!
When Jason and I first started dating over four years ago, he told me that his mom had just been diagnosed with a tumor around one of her intestines. Not knowing how to react or what to do, I simply told him that I would be there for him, but not in a creepy-stalker-overbearing way. After all, it was our very first date.
Why are we always drawn to the things that are wrong for us? Or why do we always do the exact thing someone has just told us not to do? It’s like when you tell little children not to play with super-glue because it’s dangerous. Well, I’m exactly the same when it comes to making food. When Mom tells me that she’s trying to cut down on the amount of bread she eats, I simply have to make some form of bread or I’ll explode. At the mere mention of the word diet in the house, I insist on making a big batch of cookies. I am the stubborn kid with her hand super-glued to her face.
