My aunt messaged me this week, asking me what my favorite color is. This question was harder than it should be, but I decided green was definitely my favorite. I always feel pretty in green.
Auntie posted on Facebook that everyone should wear green on Saturdays to support my battle with breast cancer. This made me smile. What an awesome way to bring together everyone I care about, despite the distance in between us.
Dressed in green, my husband, son and I made our rounds doing some errands on Saturday morning. My husband pointed out all the people that we saw wearing green.
“See, they all support you too.”
When I checked Facebook later in the day, the amount of posts about wearing green was remarkable. Family and friends from all over – Florida, New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Missouri! It is such an incredible feeling to know that so many people are rooting for me, praying for me and supporting me through this battle.
As the week of treatment approaches, seeing the amazing love and support around me and my family gives me a sense of comfort, strength and hope.
That, my friends, is worth its weight in gold.
