Quotes: "Before you ever receive the wonderful treasures of a happy life, you must first give. Give of yourself. Be of service to others. Only what you give can be multiplied back into your own life. This is the law of the harvest, the law of the ten-fold return. If you give nothing, even it is multiplied, you receive nothing."- Mary Kay Ash

Rock Hill Band Competition 2010!
I now love band competitions! I mean I have for the past four years, ever since my oldest niece was a freshman in high school (now she's a senior and her sister is now a freshman and she too is in the band). The competitions are a lot of fun to watch. It's great seeing the shows that all of those hard working teenagers have been determined to put together since mid July!
This year was especially...can't think of another word except for... perfect. Perfect in two ways. One, I got to watch Kelsey perform for the first time alongside her big SIS in Rock Hill! This year the tears just came like last year as I saw BSHS march out onto that football field. I get so nervous (like the feeling I get right before public speaking) when I see them enter the stadium. Once they start though my anxiousness turns into joy. They have worked so hard and this year they won first place at Rock Hill. I am so proud of them! They have several more competitions but the next big one is in November! Can't wait to see you play again girls!
Two, the band competition was in October. October is breast cancer awareness month. My own mother is a breast cancer survivor. BSHS supported breast cancer awareness by selling "Pink Matters" tshirts! We wanted to support the school and the cause and especially our mother and the girls' grandmother so we wore our "Pink Matters" tshirts! C had one especially made for her for the event!
We are thankful and blessed each day that we are now on this side of our mother's cancer...CANCER FREE that is! I have lots of wonderful things to say about my mother during her pre and post cancer treatments. I've posted her survivor's story recently. I've never seen someone shine as much as she has during the last seven months! You are such a positive person mom! What an example you've given to all that you know and especially to your daughters and granddaughters! We love you!
