Calendar Girl!!

My sister, Judith, was honored to be chosen as one of the Angels of 2013 by The Pink Ribbon Boutique in Russellville, AR. (She's the one standing in the middle.) Twelve beautiful, strong women who are all breast cancer survivors were chosen for the very first Angels Calendar. Today, at a small reception the women were honored as the calendar was released. There was a lot of emotion in that small shop today...smiles and tears!

The back of the calendar reads,
These women lived through what most of us couldn't dream of enduring.
They have used laughter as a source for healing.
They have earned their wings through their creator's love for them.

This town came together in order to produce a lovely calendar. So many people donated their time and expertise to make this calendar possible, from the photographer to the hair stylists! The money from the calendars will be donated to the Relay For Life.
Here she is...
Ms. May
Below their photo each one told their story. Judith says in her story, "Inner strength is so very hard to describe, but I truly believe that God gives us the strength at the time we need it most."
I have the most amazing, beautiful, strong, courageous sister!  I'm so very proud of her!!
