October already?!

One month of internship down, eleven to go! It sounds like a lot still, but this first month or so has actually gone fairly quickly and I'm sure as I get even busier and start taking on more tasks at the church (like preaching, which I begin doing this Sunday!! pray for me!!) time will fly by.
With the arrival of October it's starting to feel a little more like fall. While summer remains my favorite season, I do appreciate fall for it's beautiful colors and delicious apple- and pumpkin-themed food and, of course, football season!

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, I thought I would use this post to make readers aware (if you aren't already) of two very easy things you can do to help.
1. The Breast Cancer Site is a website where all you have to do is go and click and sponsors who advertise on their website will donate money to fund free mammograms for women who can't afford them. It's so easy, free, and takes maybe 30 seconds. I keep the site on my bookmarks toolbar and click on it several times a day. (There are also other causes you can click on, such as hunger and the environment.)
2. If you're a yogurt-lover like I am, make your yogurt choice this month Yoplait. If you save the pink lids and mail them in they donate money for each lid they receive to breast cancer research.

And don't forget, ladies, to get your yearly mammogram (once you hit 35/40) and remind the women in your life to do it too! (And while we're talking about cancer screening, tell your men, if they're over 40/50, to get a prostate exam!)
