Finally Friday

Finally Friday is all about breathing a sigh of relief that the week is over with a photo and its “short” quote.  Yes – similar to Wordless Wednesday, but created for those who have no capacity to be wordless such as myself.   I’m Italian and I am just getting over trying to say things in 140 characters or less on Twitter.

This Friday, I am thankful and excited about what is in store this weekend. Yes, it’s the unofficial start of the summer season, but that is not why I am so excited.

This weekend, my daughter will take on a very special project with a very special cause.  She, along with my son, will be raising money for Alex’s Lemonade Stand.  Their signs are ready.  Their product is ready and they are ready to spend the weekend outside.

This idea stemmed from a Girl Scout assignment and has taken on a life of its own and I couldn’t be more proud of how my daughter has taken ownership of this project.   While doing research about the foundation, we learned Alex passed away the year and month of my daughter’s birth.  This was not lost on my daughter who turned to me and said, “It’s like I am meant to continue her work.”

Speechless.  She left me speechless.

If you are in our neighborhood, please stop by.  100% of everything sold will go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation!

Now it’s your turn!  Link with me and post your Finally Friday blog, or simply share your comments with me on Facebook!
