It's Been A Year...

It's been a year, a glorious year since that stupid cancer diagnosis. And I'm here, I feel good and have no complaints! Cancer might be stupid, but life is good!

Today's post is about cancer, but not my own. Instead, it's about a hard fought battle and 2 other lives... lives I didn't even know...

I would like to introduce you to the Morgan family. Last Fall, 11Alive News aired a story about Ryan, apparently someone stole his new puppy. Was this big news? Well not what you would call big news to the Atlanta area but it was big news for this family. You see, it wasn't an ordinary puppy and Ryan wasn't an ordinary little boy; Ryan had cancer and the puppy filled him with joy. It was a sad story that you hoped had a happy ending...

It had been months since hearing anything about the Morgans - until the article in this morning's newspaper: . I do not know this family but their story is a tribute to their strength and love for one another. I learned much more by visiting their blog: and encourage you to do the same. There are stories like these unfolding all across America every day, however this story was in my own backyard and so close to home.

So today's entry is about cancer... though not my own as I am here to write this post. It's about a family who has shown this community what's most important in life. And the community will pay tribute to them this afternoon. This is my little tribute to the Morgan's... I hope you will get to know them...

Gymnastics rules in our house! My daughter is a competitive gymnast and we travel all over the State for her to compete. We also love the University of Georgia Gym Dogs and never miss a home meet. On March 29, 2008 the Gym Dogs won their 16th SEC Championship and it was every bit as exciting as we could hope!! In April '08, UGA won their 4th consecutive National Championship at home in Athens GA!!

In 2009 - the theme was "All In For 10" and the GymDogs successfully captured their record setting 10th overall and 5th consecutive national championship!

As the 2010 GymDog season begins, Jay Clark takes the helm as the new coach for the UGA Gymnastics program. We're looking forward to an exciting season!

Goooo Dawgs!
