May is one of my favourite months! As Mother's Day approaches, I am so thankful for my mom and the wonderful heritage I have, along with many wonderful memories of my mother in law. I learnt many things from her and I am thankful that she raised such an amazing son who I have been blessed to be married to for 35 years coming up on the 15th of May.
Randy and I have been enjoying some time at our favourite place, Ko Olina, Hawaii. We have spent some time together celebrating our anniversary and some time with family as well. It has been a wonderful holiday and we are so thankful that we were able to get away.
Next month on June 9th, our family, friends and extended family will be taking part in the Relay for Life at McLeod Athletic Park in Langley. This is our 5th year participating in this event. My daughter in law, Alison, signed us up the year I had my kidney cancer so that we could help raise funds for all cancers. This year, I have been asked by the Relay for Life committee to share the story of my cancer journey. The Canadian Cancer Society does a great job with this event and it's a very special night for me. It is quite emotional I might add, but I am thankful that after all I have been through these past 6+ years, I am able to walk the track as a survivor remembering those we have lost to cancer and those fighting their cancer battles. If you would like to walk or run the track with us that night we would love to have join us. If you are unable to join us and would like to donate to the Canadian Cancer Society, you can click here to donate funds in support of our team - Team Senges. Everyone knows someone that has been diagnosed with cancer, we need to continue to bring awareness and raise funds for this horrible disease so that we can continue to help those of us that need treatment and surgery. I am so thankful for all the care that I have received throughout my cancer journey. We live in the best country and are so fortunate to have most of it covered through our health care system.
I want to wish all the moms out there a Happy Mothers Day! Enjoy your day! What a privilege it has been for me to raise 3 amazing kids and to be blessed with the best daughter in law and son in law. I have so much to be thankful for!
Thank you for your continued love, support and prayers.
