I walk for two…

Happy Birthday to my special friend Jenn.  Today she would have been 36 years old.   Jenn and I met while we were enduring  chemo 10 years ago.   To know Jenn was to love her ~ she always put her heart and soul into living each day to its fullest.

She had an incredible impact on the world ~ loved by so many people whose lives she touched simply by being herself.  She was upfront with what was going on, supportive to others and shone like a beacon of hope to so many ~ inspiring all of us with her smile.

I was blessed to have known her ~ and to walk this journey of life with her for awhile.   Jenn was full of life, making the most of every situation and not allowing it to get her down…her mantra was her song…so I dedicate this Tom Petty to Jenn…

Well I won’t back down
No I won’t back down
You can stand me up at the gates of hell
But I won’t back down

No I’ll stand my ground, won’t be turned around
And I’ll keep this world from draggin me down
gonna stand my ground
… and I won’t back down

Chorus:
(I won’t back down…)
Hey baby, there ain’t no easy way out
(and I won’t back down…)
hey I will stand my ground
and I won’t back down

Well I know what’s right, I got just one life
in a world that keeps on pushin me around
but I’ll stand my ground…and I won’t back down.

We may never be able to explain the things that happen in this world.

All we can do is live the best life we possibly can

and celebrate the lives of our loved ones.

Now in my heart, I walk for 2 ~ me and you.
