PurpleStride Savannah

This weekend we drove to Tybee Island, GA for the Pancreatic Cancer Network's PurpleStride 5K.

It was a chilly and windy walk/run on the beach, but I'm glad that we went in memory of my dad.

They had a short kids' run and then there was the 5K Run/Walk. The wind really started to get to Kayla so Joe took her back up on the pier and Lucas toughed out the rest of the walk with me. Ok except on the way back when a police officer patrolling the beach offered us a ride back ... and Lucas wanted to ride on the jeep; so we almost made the 5K.

It was an emotional day thinking about, and remembering my dad, and wishing he was still here with us.

Glow sticks to light it up purple for hope and remembrance of loved ones.

I was thinking about you yesterday.. It is always so "tough" and it is ok to still be emotional about losing your dad. You miss him... love mom

Sorry, this comment has almost nothing to do about your post BUT

I couldn't help but notice how pretty your daughter is.

That said, I have yet to lose anyone close to me so I can't pretend to know what it's like.

Blessings! :)

You are such a pro active community person, good on you.
Sorry you miss your dad, I've still got mine, he's 86 now, it's so old !!

Can I give you a bus update - my girl is now catching the bus two days a week and I now stand a distance from the bus stop and let her walk to the car, instead of me standing at the stop. Thanks for inspiring/reminding me to let go and let her grow up.
