I hope this made my Mom smile today! :)

So, I brought in my butterfly hair clips to work to try and sell them to raise money for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk in my Mom’s memory. To tell you the truth, I was sooooo nervous because I feel uncomfortable “asking” people for money, but I really wanted to do it for my Mom. I made 40 of them, and I set a goal for myself to sell 20 today. I prayed to God about it on the way to work, and when I did, I saw a big sticker on the car in front of mine that said “20”! So strange, right?? Well, guess what! I sold 20! Plus some people donated extra for the Walk!! I have raised $160 today with $130 promised on next week! How awesome!! I am SO happy, you have no idea!!

I posted this on my FB this morning for Ash Wednesday: “For with God nothing is impossible”, and I truly believe it. It may have been a small goal to some, but to me it was huge! I am going to keep working hard to raise money in her name, her birthday is coming up, and it is so special to do this in her honor!

  1. What a beautiful thing to do in your mom's memory. I'm sure she's so proud of you. Congrats on meeting and exceeding your goal. My mom is living with heart disease. I'm doing a heart walk for her in May and reading your post inspired to get fundraising. So thanks for that!!! I'm sure your mom is smiling :)
