I woke up this morning wishing I had closed the windows last night because there was a very crisp breeze going throughout the house. Then I remembered… IT’S OCTOBER!
This is one of my favorite months of the year. It’s the year that Fall kicks into high gear, with the trees changing colors, pumpkins all around, my wedding anniversary and recognition and action is taken for two causes that are very near to my heart.
October is Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer Awareness month. These causes are near to my heart because I lost two of my aunts and a host of loved ones to breast cancer and I come from a family with domestic violence in our veins. Every October I do what I can to spread the word about both causes. I find that education is power, it’s important that we are up to date on these major issues and work hard to do something about fixing them. My contributions may be small in the grand scheme of things but I can’t just sit back and do nothing.
Every Wednesday I will feature a post about Breast Cancer and every Thursday I will write a post about Domestic Violence.
Please do what you can to support these causes these causes.
Until next time…
