it is the time that is near and dear to my heart. october is the month of my oldest son's birthday, which is one day after my meemaw's birthday. meemaw was my mom's mother. i was as close to her as i am my mom. the day i got engaged to micah, november 4, 1999, she was diagnosed with breast cancer. 17 short days later, we lost her to that dreaded disease. i miss her all the time. her relationship with her mother, then with my mother, then my mother with me is what made me crave a daughter. and now, i wish she was here to hold this little cherub. in the mean time, let's all find a way to "save the ta-tas". happy breast cancer awareness month!!
