Good morning! I’m up early because I have a big day planned! Tonight I will be attending the annual Mother-Daughter dinner at the Ramada with my natural daughter, Angela, the blonde in the photo, and my “chosen” daughter, Michelle, the brunette. The dinner is a fundraiser for Breast Cancer Research, and each year, my wonderful husband, John, purchases the tickets for us.
Angela and Michelle may not be sisters by blood, but they are sisters in every way that truly matters. They’ve supported one another through thick and thin ever since they met about twenty-five years ago. When we go camping together, we are quite the army since they have eight children between them now, and six of those are boys. Ages range from 16 to almost 8. How time has flown!
The Mother-Daughter evening includes cocktails, a silent auction, incredible meals, wine and dessert. The money raised over the years has been substantial and when matched by Scotiabank, it goes a long way toward breast cancer research.
Here we are in 2016 when the theme was black and white. This year, it’s spring fling, even though we haven’t seen much spring here yet. So, for today, it’s hair, nails, and getting ready for a little me time. How about you? What’s on your agenda today?
