I don’t know why exactly but I’ve always felt comfortable in Grafton. Never more so than tonight. Even when the lights went out during yet another downpour while I was speaking at the opening ceremonies of the Walsh County Relay for Life.
Eventually the rain lifted enough for Ginny and me to be able to join other cancer survivors in a beautiful balloon release and a ceremonial first Relay lap.
During the lap, a beautiful rainbow appeared, the first I’ve seen in years. I’m not sure what it meant, but it was enough to take my breath away.
I can’t believe how lucky I am to have been asked to speak at such an wonderful event. Really.
Thank you, Walsh County friends. I won’t soon forget tonight.
