First, I would like to send my heartfelt appreciation to all those who sponsored My David for
this Ride to Conquer Cancer. To be eligible each participant had to raise $2,500.00 -
because of YOU, your donations raised $3,805.00 -he not only met his goal-
he exceeded it... I cannot tell you how excited and determined he was and is...
So thank you from my heart..
Second, this ride is 100 km per day. I had to drive him to Niagara Falls very early this morning
and I will be cheering him at a cheering station close to noon...I already made some POM POMs in Yellow to match all of their Jerseys...
and I have a sign that I going to make after this post that will say
B.P. ( my nickname for him)
I ALWAYS believe in YOU!
He is cycling with hundreds of others who will be heading
to Mohawk College in Hamilton...
Tomorrow he will repeat this ride but he will begin in Hamilton and end in Niagara Falls.
Here is the route...SEE the cheerleader..that will be ME.......
It has not been easy this year when YOU watch the love
of your life fight an enemy that has no friends. I cannot even tell you how
he fills my heart completely. He is MY ALWAYS fellow!
I have seen him struggle many times but never has he complained openly,
but I saw his despair in those quiet moments when he thought I was not watching..
My heart was just torn apart!
I just kept praying he would get to this point....AND HE HAS...
It is really amazing when others believe in him too..
Thank you again..
I was not at all prepared today for the EMOTIONAL RIDE
this has taken me... I had my dark glasses on this morning and my hat
covered most of my face, because I did not want him to see me crying....
I laughed at this photo...He had his SANDALS on with socks
such a FAUX PAS...( fashion NO NO )...He could not
wear his riding shoes while driving lol
NEVER would I allow him to put socks with sandals...
BUT who was going to see him this early AM....? :)
I was not allowed to go behind the drop off point...so while I was driving away, I was able
to catch this photo of him, looking at me with that smile that brightens up my world.
I am not too worried about my BELOVED as his big Brother, Greg will never be far...
He will be riding his BMW Motorcycle ( as a volunteer for the ride) and will be staying with us till MONDAY. His responsibility is to keep the cyclists on course...Let me say, there is no doubt in my mind he will never be far from his baby brother...
Two of my most favourite MEN in the WORLD!
so I must run, I have a sign to paint and supplies to pick up for their supper this
evening...Last night we had spaghetti and meat balls...they needed lot;s of carbs
and I made some strawberry rhubarb pies...
Tonight they will feast on Salmon Steaks, Ceasar Salads and more PIES...
