Life Is Good -

For those of you who don't know about the company Life Is Good ... let me introduce you!

The story in our family goes like this. Shortly after Kristi (my little sister) was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, she got one of these stickers to put on her cute car. Given all that she was about to face, I'm not sure that's the sticker I would have chosen. I probably would have gotten something along the lines of Life's a *%&##!

Long story short, it's the sticker of choice in our family now. A few years ago, several of us joined Kristi's friends on the "Kristi's Crusaders" Team in walking the Breast Cancer 3-Day. It was crazy great! When we told the Life Is Good Co. of Kristi's inspirational story, they donated our awesome shirts and our Team Captain (Lisa) had Kristi's very own signature transferred from one of her hats onto our shirts. It was a great gift and an incredible experience. To this day, I have a soft place in my heart for this company and what they represent. Such a simple phrase combined with such simple art, exudes large motivation to me, as it did Kristi.

Once you have one of these stickers placed somewhere that you see it often enough ... you actually begin to find hope in the words. You've just got to get one!
