Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I couldn’t help myself and had to post an Orange shamrock!

Even though I come from good Polish stock, St. Patty’s day always held a special place in our hearts growing up. My grandparents were married on that day because you couldn’t get married during Lent, but only on St. Patrick’s or St Joseph’s feast days. So we always celebrated Grandma & Grandpa Daminski’s Anniversary.

Gram would be amazed at the choices for a St. Patrick's Day Wedding theme today!

Grandpa was always in charge of the St. Patty’s float for his church’s entry in the annual parade. In the weeks leading up to the parade I remember helping Gram make hundreds of tissue paper carnations which would be used to cover the float and the visiting Grandpa at the workshop as he and his buddies were busy smoking their cigars and debating design elements. Ah the things we remember as kids…

Thank you all for tuning in for a Wonderful MS Awareness Week of crazy posts. I hope you learned something and enjoyed yourselves but most of all have a greater awareness of those that might be suffering from ANY invisible illness or disease. We may look great on the outside, but some days we really are just trying to fake it!

I’m off to lunch today with my Mom (her treat – Thanks Mom!) It’s an annual fundraising luncheon with lots of who’s who, volunteers, those of us living with MS, doctors, nurses, PA’s, and fundraising extraordinaires!

Mom and I have a lot of fun, we enjoy a great afternoon out together (which we don’t get very often), a great meal at a posh location (Locust Hill C.C.), and I take a couple of photos here and there trying to act like the press (for the blog) to see what some of the trendy fashionistas of the Rochester area are wearing and go home filled with courage, inspiration, and smiles! Last years luncheon was my first time at the event and I was so filled with hope after listening to the speech by Jennifer Mason. Be sure to click over Here to read about it!

I realize this week most everyone has been all about the Green and St. Patrick’s Day, it’s been very confusing for all my story timers as I read books about green and leprechaun’s yet am wearing orange and an orange ribbon for Awareness Week. Try explaining that to 1-3 year olds! But most of the tall people got it (I hope).

Please help me turn this Awareness of Multiple Sclerosis and the celebration of Green into the movement of some of your hard-earned Green into Orange! Please donate to sponsor Me and Team March as we Walk for MS this spring on Sunday, May 20th. Click here to sponsor us!
