Hello there! Thanks for hopping over. If you landed here today, chances are you are participating in the 10/16/10 Breast Cancer Awareness Blog Hop. Thank you so much for being on board and showing your support. If you are lost and looking for the beginning of the blog hop, please start at DSJM Designs to start the journey!
As I was thinking about this post, I began to ponder what is Breast Cancer Awareness, really? What is the purpose and what do I have to say about it? As I clicked from site to site and spoke to family and friends, I joyously discovered the result of this movement is building strong community.
Here’s a little story to describe how I see it: The police station in my neighborhood has a ridiculously large sign that reads “CommUNITY Center” (and yes, it really is written like that). At first glance I thought this sign was cliché, but quickly realized the significance. As a community we become unified. We help one another. Our souls find rest in knowing we are working together. Life seems a little bit safer and a little more manageable when we know we are not alone. When something as life-shaking as breast cancer sneaks into your world, it is community that helps you take a deep breath and move forward. This is life in the most beautiful sense. Being real and letting others into the sticky places in our lives.
Here’s a little something I made to represent my involvement. To show that I am in. that I care. I also want to contribute to the community, so I will be giving these earrings away to one of the followers of this blog.

The random drawing will be held on Sunday 10/17/10 and the winner will be announced right here! To take a peek at more button earrings and sewn stationery, you can visit www.PinkButtonCreations.com.
