I Meant To….

For those of us who live in Georgia, another school year is in the history books. As I think back over the school year things come to mind that I meant to do.

Surprise that teacher with a Starbucks card…just because…ooh…I meant to.

Welcome the new principal with a huge bouquet of flowers…ooh…I meant to.

Send in thank you notes for doing I job I could NEVER do…ooh…I meant to.

Pack my kid a lunch every day. Ooh… I meant to.

Ok.  So that last one is a joke.  Sort of.

The point is we all have the best of intentions.  But life is busy.  And time moves fast. And our schedules are jam packed.

And so we often find ourselves saying…

Ooooohhh…I meant to.

We are now 3 days out from the First Annual Travis Lee Roberts Memorial Golf Tournament benefiting CancerKicks, Inc. and to say it is a success would be an understatement.  Hemma Concrete, the company Travis started, has stepped up like nobody could have imagined and in doing so they have inspired their vendors and clients to do the same.

And they have.

It’s been inspiring. But there is one area where we are surprisingly lacking and that is donations coming in from this blog. And we couldn’t figure out why.  And then it hit me.

Because life gets in the way. 

Because time moves fast, schedules are jam packed and we have the best of intentions but end up saying…

Ooooohhh…I meant to.

So if you meant to…I have great news.

It’s not too late.

There are multiple donation amounts to fit all budgets and every  donation helps.  One option is the #chopthemanbun donation of $25.  Travis’ brother-in-law Joe has been growing his hair since December 2013 to donate to Locks of Love in honor of Travis.  If enough money is raised then he will do it at the tournament.

This is just one of the options you will find by visiting the Golf Tournament Webpage:

The only way we ever have a chance to stop horrible cancers like Cholangiocarcinoma from stealing loved ones too soon is by raising money for organizations like CancerKicks, Inc.  I can’t imagine there’s a single person who doesn’t want to do that. It’s probably just that….

We meant to.
