After speaking to a friend today, whose also involved in raising funds for BCC, my mobile rang again. It was my friend's friend. She didn't realise that I was involved with BCC. The gratitude that streamed down the phone over the next few minutes was, to say the least, unexpected.
Sometimes in life we never know how our words and deeds inspire others. This person is a breast cancer sufferer and her kind words made me feel a little humble, mindful of the needs of others, yet more determined to meet my fund-raising goal.
