I hope that today, as part of breast cancer awareness, you will wear bright pink lipstick.
Cancer is a word, not a sentence. – Author Unknown
Audrey Hepburn said a famous line in the movie, “Breakfast At Tiffany’s”:
A girl cannot read without lipstick. – Audrey Hepburn
I love that line – so much, that I tweaked it and told people in my church that I can’t sing without lipstick. It’s amazing how many people thought I made that up. Isn’t anyone else a fan of Audrey Hepburn?
I’m usually in a more coral or burgundy mood… but today I will wear my BRIGHT PINK for my friends and family who have battled breast cancer and those who sadly, lost the battle.
Maybe today you will:
Travel to Paris.
Write the great American novel.
Listen to Buck Owens. Quit laughing. Seriously, stop. Okay – listen to whatever you want.
Pick flowers from your garden.
Say a prayer or two (throw one in for me, okay?)
Exercise without shoes or socks. Just don’t forget your lipstick. 😉
Dust the house.
Take a walk in the rain.
Go out for a girl’s night out… OR
Put on pink to go out for lunch and a movie. ❤
Whatever is on your schedule today, make sure you are wearing your bright pink lipstick! Show your support for the American Cancer Society and please consider donating today.
My cancer scare changed my life. I’m grateful for every new, healthy day I have. It has helped me prioritize my life. – Olivia Newton-John
A diagnosis of cancer is a game changer. Scary at first – but then the fear turns into fight and the attitude kicks in – with faith in God and determination to follow doctor’s instructions to the letter. There’s a realization that human beings are indeed finite and frail. These bodies we are given need to be cared for very carefully with proper nutrition and regular exercise and hydration.
A diagnosis of breast cancer is a teacher. The lesson is one that will never be forgotten. We learn that there may be some bad habits we need to let go of for the sake of our health. As we make healthier choices, we then are able to face challenges that will help our quality of life.
Some days there won’t be a song in your heart. Sing anyway. – Emory Austin
Once health is restored, and with thanksgiving we run toward the next hurdle, knowing we can jump it with complete confidence in our God because He saw us through. He’s been so faithful in our lives. He will continue to be faithful because He loves us so very much. 🙂
