Today has to be the proudest day of my life. Last week, Ruche Clothing was looking for stories of inspiration and hope, about cancer. I decided to write one about a poet named Gabrielle Bouliane that I knew in Austin, TX. So I wrote it, Saturday, and forgot about it for a couple days. I had planned on emailing Ruche after about a week or so. Then I got a call from my sister tonight, while I was at work. She told me that Ruche had published my story!!!! I'm so excited. I'm so proud of myself. I made it a point to go on Gabrielle's facebook page to thank her. And though I wish I didn't have to tell that story, I couldn't be happier that I get to spread her message to more people.
Feel free to check it out here.
And this one.
It's impossible to not cry, I know. A beautiful poem, from a brave woman.
