I got a really cool email today from

During the Tour de France, they have this "chalkbot" which paints chalk messages of inspiration on the roads of the Tour. You could submit messages; many of them were cancer-related. Since I have 3 email addresses, I made 3 submissions:

1. "These are the days of miracle and wonder" -Paul Simon, Graceland lyric- this is my favorite song

2. For beautiful, courageous Natalie

This is Natalie, a good friend and teammate who passed away from cancer in 2007

3. If you want to be free, be free -Cat Stevens lyric

Et voila! They sent me this picture from France!

I was disappointed that they didn't use my message for Natalie, because that was the one that really mattered to me. However, it's still cool that they chose one of my submissions: and I herby dedicate it to Nat!

Wow that post made me pause for a moment. How life so short can be taken away so fast. I wish they used Natalie's one too. it would be such an inspiration - not just for those with Cancer - but for everyone - to live each day with a purpose, with love in your hearts, and kindness to others, and to live life like you mean it! God Bless Natalie and to you. May your hearts be forever bonded by your friendship for one another. Never forget the good times and the smiles to light up your day - every day!
