I arrived back home to the states from my extended stay in Aruba on August 4th. Although there was much disappointment around missing out on a special 10 year anniversary dinner with my toes in the sand and a snorkel cruise in that amazing blue water on our last two scheduled days, I am able to look back on the time as a whole and name all the graces that I found in my covid positive experience. The Lord was without a doubt present with me and the time of retreat was absolutely a gift I would never have afforded myself. And yes it makes for a good story too!
Labor Day 2021~The last days of summer have meant turning another year older, and after being away appreciating all the many things here that make summer my favorite time of year. It is alway bittersweet to say goodbye to the lazy days of summer while dreaming and planning for a fun October. In celebration of 10 years of survivorship, we have decided that our event this year will take on a different feel. Chesepiooc Real Ale Brewery in Crofton, MD has graciously offered to host our event as a family friendly happy hour. There will be beer (perhaps even a special Pink Brew), food trucks, and plenty of outdoor yard games. We will continue to collect kit supplies and donations, sell some fun new Pinked gear, and celebrate all the Pink Warriors as we have done in years past. We would love for you to mark your calendar and to celebrate with our family on October 23rd!
In the last week we have shipped kits to over 4 different states including Pennsylvania, Nebraska, Illinois, Louisiana, and locally to Crofton, MD. We count it a privilege to support those facing breast cancer treatment this way.
As mentioned, we will continue to collect supplies and donations for our kits at the October event; however, we have some specific needs now. Below you will find a list of the items we are in need of:
- Jesus Calling Devotionals
- Fall Button Down pajamas (Small, Medium and Large)
- EOS Lip Balms
- Tissues (Travel packs)
Check out the updated Amazon Wishlist for an easy way to purchase supplies and have them shipped directly to us!
Thanks so much for considering a donation to Pinked Perspective this fall. And please let us know of any loved ones that may be in need of the support that we provide.
