It's Donna's Day!

Mary Tyler Mom.  If you are familiar with my blog and facebook, you have more than likely stumble across her or across a page that talks about her.  She is funny, and sweet, and caring, and fierce, and devoted, and a mom to 2 children on Earth and one that isn't here any more.  I don't even know her personally, but she amazes me nonetheless.

This sweet little nugget it Donna.  Donna died from cancer.  Mary Tyler Mom chronicled Donna's life here.  Instead of being sucked into the sadness, Donna's mom chooses hope.  Every damn day.  Instead of crawling into the dark hole of grief that is entirely too inviting some days, Donna's mom is a tireless advocate for childhood cancer and raising awareness and money for research.

If you have a moment today, visit Mary Tyler Mom's facebook page and blog.  Read Donna's story.  Yes, you will cry.  Yes, you will want to stop reading.  Yes, if you make it through the whole story, your life will be different.  Maybe not a huge change, but enough to give you the courage to always choose hope.
