I {heart} Mominor...

{Katie and Me}

It is that time of year...We walk to honor, respect, support, and remember!

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer walk has ALWAYS been dear to my heart.
This year I honor my sweet Crazy Aunt Jane for being an amazing survivor and remember one very special lady. Scootin' for Sandy was established as our team name last year when a mom to one of my favorite school biffies was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Katie and I have taught at Walton Ferry for 4 years now. I knew the minute I met her, I quite liked her. Same is true about her family...I knew the minute I met them, I quite liked them. They are best described as teacher teaching, people loving, yard sale going, crafty crafties, and overall just GOOD people. Mrs. Sandy Venable, Katie’s mom, taught in Sumner County for basically EVER. She loved to teach. She and her sweet husband, Mike, raised three beautiful daugthers...Carrie, Katie, and Cassie. They all look like their beautiful mother and carry her love for life. Mominor was Mrs. Sandy's nickname given to her by her grandson Jaxson.

, 2010, Sweet Mominor Mrs. Sandy lost her battle with breast cancer. Last year we walked the Komen walk in her memory and will do the same thing this year. We went, we cried, we laughed, and mostly, we missed her and her sweet sweet spirit. She was a wonderful woman that would have been so proud of all the friends and family that came and walked. Our team was a beautiful mess of people...co-workers, friends, family members, Mrs. Sandy's high school friends, Katie and Cassie's sorority sisters, and even friends that had never met Mominor...it was beautiful.
