Yes, I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can find his way by moonlight,

and see the dawn before the rest of the world. ~Oscar Wilde~

Australia's Biggest Morning Tea ~

What an inspiring woman Kelly is ~ 33 years young and diagnosed with breast cancer last October. Her spirit and determination to forge through an absolute horrendous time is to be acknowledged and applauded. 

Having had the utmost pleasure in meeting her today as she was the organiser for Australia's Biggest Morning Tea at Our Lady of Loudes Primary School (Auditorium) for Cancer. 

To stand beside this lady made me feel blessed ~ why? ~ because she oozed courage - she really did. To face this challenge in her life head on and to focus on fundraising whilst also being a mother to two very young children was incredible. Where does she get her energy? Attitude - attitude with a big fat 'A' is what I come up with. With this in its place one can only wonder what can be achieved and today certainly recognised that. I watched Kelly mixing with everyone, ensuring all was going to plan - raffle drawing, auctions, making everyone feel welcome by coming up and talking and saying hello, thanking everyone for their kind donations and to those volunteering. Watching as she made her speech with tears but just as quick  whipping around getting herself together to continue. Enormous, enormous strength.

I felt very blessed, I did to be in this lady's company although under saddening circumstances. 

I was moved by everyone's desire to be friendly and throwing smiles at will. 

A superb effort was had with raising (I believe) $4000 in two hours! .....

Overwhelmed with one of the best feelings in life today ~ thank you Kelly and to your family for showing what real love and friendship is all about.

Bless you for your recovery and beating this dreadful disease ~ I salute you ~ xXx ~

*Life was really, really wonderful today ~
