I hope and pray the past week has been good. This week’s “Let’s Talk“ is personal and important. Please take a moment to read this important story and special request.
I want to talk about Thanks-giving and Thanks-living. Is there a difference? I think there is… Thanksgiving is an event designated to give thanks for all our blessings. Thanks-living is a way of life; an action of living and giving. Thanksgiving is a day set aside each year. Thanks-living is 24/7, 365 days of the year.
As the holidays approach, let us make thanks-living a part of who we are. As we count our blessings, let’s make thanksgiving an action through thanks-living.
Let’s work together and help someone through the holidays with just a spark of thanksgiving to create a flame of thanks-living. Read the special story and help me fan the flame….
Meet Robbie Faber…
Robbie is a friend. He is my friend. He and his family live in the same small town where I lived, loved and raised my children. Robbie has a story and I want to share it with you.
Robbie was diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer in January 2011. He underwent surgery in February of 2011 and started his first round of chemo in March 2011. In November of 2011 he was told he had less than a year to live, and he BEAT those odds! In February of 2012, he was told there was no cancer showing in the scan. Then, three months later, he learned the cancer had spread to both lungs. More rounds of chemo started in June of 2012. October 2012, he received good news…scan was clear! He had another scan in August, of this year, and the scan showed spots on both lungs and liver. Robbie recently had another scan and it wasn’t the news he was hoping for. He will start a stronger chemo treatment. The mission is to help lift his spirits and show support. I would love it if you all could send a fun bandana, a card, or anything else you may think would help Rob fight this battle.
Please go to the Face Book page Bandanas For Rob, and let Robbie and his wife, Pam, know you care with a “like”, simply say “hello” or just wish him good thoughts. If you are able to send a bandana, please send to the following address.
118 W. Olive Street

Now, it’s your turn. Please share your thoughts on this. Do you know someone who is fighting cancer? Do you know a cause in which we can work together to help make a difference? Do you have something special to share about Thanksgiving/Thanks-living? If you have something to say, please share it with me. Tell me something…anything…whatever is on your mind. I want to hear your voice. What you have to say matters to me. LET’S TALK!
“Fan the flame 24/7-365!”
