Passing the Purple Hat

This was sent to me by one of my oldest and dearest friends via my email.
So I wanted to share it with everyone here on my blog. If you feel so inclined please go right ahead and copy and pass it on. I know this is usually and email post. But my dear hubby's mother lost her battle with cancer on the 5th  of April 13 years ago.
So just sharing this makes me feel like I'm remembering her and all those who have lost their battle. Not to mention supporting all those who are fighting the battle of cancer. And celebrating those who have beat the odds who are survivors of this dread disease cancer. Who now have the that VICTORY over cancer.
Praying they find a cure for all the cancers. 

Thank you all for your indulgest of this copy from my email.

Passing the Purple Hat  

In honor of Elizabeth Edwards who fought an elegant battle.  Also, in honor of women's history month and in memory of Erma Bombeck who lost her fight with cancer.

Pass this on to five women/men that you want watched over.

If you don't know five women to pass this on to, one will do just fine.


(written after she found out she was dying of cancer).

I would have gone to bed when I was sick instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren't there for the day.

I would have burned the pink candle sculpted like a rose before it melted in storage.

I would have talked less and listened more.

I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained, or the sofa faded.

I would have eaten the popcorn in the 'good' living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.

I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather ramble about his youth.

I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been done.

I would have sat on the lawn and not worried about grass stains.

I would have cried and laughed less while watching television and more while watching life.

I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn't show soil, or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.

Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I'd have cherished every moment and realized that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.

When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, 'Later. Now go get washed up for dinner.' There would have been more 'I love you's' More 'I'm sorry's.'

But mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute, look at it, and really see it . . live it and never give it back.       STOP SWEATING THE SMALL STUFF!!!

Don't worry about who doesn't like you, who has more, or who's doing what.
 Instead, let's cherish the relationships we have with those who do love us.

If you don't mind, send this on to all the women you are grateful to have as friends.

Maybe we should all grab that purple hat earlier.

Please send this to five phenomenal women today in celebration of Beautiful Women's Month.

If you do, something good will happen--you will boost another woman's self esteem.



These are the colors that represent the different cancers.


All you are asked to do is keep this circulating, even if it's to one more person, in memory of anyone you know who has been struck by cancer.

A Candle Loses Nothing by Lighting Another Candle..
Please Keep The Candle Going!

This one I do ask that you please send on.

By sending this on, you Will think and realize how you've been blessed, up until now.

This is a disease which affects all families.... no one is exempt!

I posted this one on my Blog quite some time ago, but it's absolutely wonderful. Unfortunately, I lost one of my best friends with cancer about 18 months ago. We always went on holidays together, and I still miss her terribly.
