Walking and singing and hoping and praying…

Posted by on Aug 04 2011 | Events, Life Keeps Happening!

Mattie and I have been teaching vocal lessons for the past 2 years! We love it and you know what, it has made both of us better singers. If you want to get better at anything in life become a teacher. We have exciting news: Mattie and I will be participating in the Susan G. Komen for The Cure 3Day Walk in San Diego! Mattie has already raised her minimum goal! Woo-Hoo! I’m closing in on my goal and we’ve been training and will continue every weekend up to our event on November 18-20! Wow! So much going on right now.

If you’d like to donate to our goal here are our links:

It’s the day after Labor Day and my house is quiet. My son is napping, my husband’s at work, my teenagers are out (duh!) – I’m alone at the computer with my thoughts and I can actually hear them! Wow… a moment in time to myself:o) Moments of clarity to ponder how much I love my life. It’s these sweet moments that fill my heart with joy and surround the love inside like a cozy snuggie. (Yikes… sorry about that.) As the wonderful Frederick Buechner (whom we quote often in our book) says, “All moments are key moments and life itself is grace.” Beautiful… Oh, there’s the phone.
Feeling the moment

Finally doing the 3-Day walk!

Posted by on Jul 31 2010 | Events

So, after talking about doing the Susan G. Komen for the Cure 3-Day walk for the past 5 years, I’ve finally decided to get off my butt and do something about it. This is personal. Cancer sucks and I’m pissed off! I lost my father to pancreatic cancer last year. My sister, Gabrielle Xavier is a 6 year survivor and Mattie Mills is a 4 year survivor. I’m walking because it’s the only way I know how to make a difference and it’s something that brings me hope for a better future for my children and their children too. Thank you to everyone who has made a donation. As my dear friend, Jessica Smith says, “Any donation, no matter how small, will make a difference!”

I just finished a UK summer tour and by asking people to help with my walk by giving any extra change they had I raised $838.44! Every penny counts… I truly believe that when we get one cancer cure they will all fall. Please consider visiting my personal page and making a donation.
