I have joined a blog called "When Pink Matters". It is a blog dedicated to a woman who lost her battle with breast cancer over the summer. It challenges anyone to stitch something pink in remembrance of anyone they know who has been touched by breast cancer in any way. You have until October 2009 to stitch something.
I plan on stitching something in remembrance of my biological mother Aurie. She died of breast cancer at the age of 43. I only knew her for a little over a year before she died. She was a wonderful, strong, intelligent, funny, loving, wise, helpful, (and every other wonderful trait) woman. I am glad that I was able to give her the wish that mattered most to her before she died; having all her living children in the same room with her at the same time. I am honored to be her daughter and extremely grateful for the time I did have with her.
