Another cause near and dear to me

I'm excited and privileged to participate in Arthritis Foundation's Jingle Bell Run, *ahem* jog/walk, for the second time in three years. (Last year's cold season got the better of me.) I proudly walk in memory of a dear family friend, Bonita, who grew up with my mom and was like an aunt to us; and in honor of three other very special people: my Mom, whose strength, kindness, and character I can only hope have rubbed off a wee bit on me; a former student with Juvenile RA (the cruelest form of Arthritis, I think) who has left a lasting impact in my life and in my heart; and my bestie's mom-in-law, one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. Feel free to visit my personal site and even make a donation if you so please, and remember to thank God for your health and for living without chronic pain, if you're so blessed. Thanks, one and all!
