I love the insert in the back of all the Womens Day magazines called Simple Inspirations! It's wonderful! It's just a bunch of qoutes by famous people such as Dolly Parton, Joan Rivers, Winston Churchill, Nicole Kidman and many more!
Here's one from th Dec. 2009 issue that I love:
"We make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill
I believe that many people that have went to school for social work would agree that when going into such a field you must believe in this statement! Social work is all about giving back and helping others, I miss all the things I got to do in school to help others. I normally find ways outside of school to help others but since I've moved to the Island and had a baby well it's just tough to have time. I am starting to give back as I get use to my new role of being a parent! I just donated a ton of stuff this week and I did the walk for breast cancer...now I need to plan some stuff for next month...baby steps...as they say...little by little I will get back in to my social worker attitude!

2010 Making Strides Against Breast Cancer
Saturday, October 2, 2010
I had such a great time today at the walk it was a 5-mile walk route from Richardson Field to Ford Island. It was way easier than I thought it would be especially since I pushed a stroller the entire way and for about a 1/2 mile carried MacKenzie in my forward carrier while pushing her stroller as well! Whew! That was some work! I signed up about three days before the walk so there wasn't alot of planning involved but I am so glad I jumped in and went for it! What fun! I want to do another walk again sometime! I did this one in honor of my Aunt and my Grandmother who had breast cancer but were both survivors! I only raised $5 since it was only three days but next time I do one I will try and plan in advance and raise more money! Pictures to come at a later date!
