Last night was Relay for Life in our town. This is a special time for our community. Cancer is something every one of us has dealt with whether it be through friends, family members, or ourselves. Personally, my Papa died from cancer when I was young. My boyfriend's family has been affected deeply. His grandmother passed away a few years ago and had an aunt and uncle who passed away at a young age. Also, his dad was diagnosed this past summer but won the fight! All glory to God. It was a great celebration last night. Here's a few (blurry camera phone) pictures to show you how it went.

And this right here ladies, is male bonding. Just kidding, but this picture is becoming a Relay tradition. What can I say? Gotta love 'em.
Please keep all of those affected by cancer in your prayers!
Have a great weekend.
