Yoga for a Cure

"Love isn't love until you give it away." I have many heroes. My son, Jay, who is a Ranger, a dad, and a Captain in the United States Army, He is my hero. My daughter, Jennifer, who is a young mother and R.N. is my hero. My son, Jeff, who is brilliant and a Captain in the Air Force is my hero. My bonus son, Derek, who is my plant guru is my hero, and my other bonus son, Brandon, who is kind hearted and generous, is my hero. All of them are healthy and have active busy lives. Some of them live close and some of them live far away, but they are my heroes everyday. I love my children immensely.

I cannot imagine having a child who has Cystic Fibrosis and the continual worry/anxiety of loving them through an illness like that. Then, on top of all that, to tirelessly work to raise money for a cure to this illness is amazing. For that reason, Missy Swafford is another one of my heroes! She has a beautiful son named Brady who goes to the elementary school where I teach in Owasso. Missy is our patient and persevering cafeteria monitor; only the brave and strong should apply for that job! But, Missy does it with a smile and lots of love for the 500+ children at our school. Loving them and loving her child are two of the many things that Missy does well!

On Monday, June 6th, Tranquility Yoga is having our first annual Yoga for a Cure for Cystic Fibrosis at 6:30 p.m. It will be a minimum $10.00 donation to practice with us that evening, and I am hoping for a great showing of support and planning for an awesome beginner level class. I hope you will make plans to join us! Call 918-371-3841 for more information or directions. If you cannot make it, please feel free to write a check to Cystic Fibrosis and bring it to your next Tranquility Yoga practice.

Thank you, Missy Swafford, for being a hero to your son, to the cause to find a cure, and to all who admire you and love your beautiful smile!
