St. Baldricks

I usually hate to blog about song after song after song, but tonight I was inspired.

I went to a St. Baldrick’s event sponsored by our Student Programming Board. For those of you haven’t heard of St. Baldrick’s it’s mission is to help cure children’s cancer. Attendees raise money for children’s cancer leading up to the event. Then, on one big night guys AND girls get up on stage to shave their heads. A kid with cancer will face the challenge of not having hair, what a better way to support them by going through the feat with them. If you want to learn more you, or even donate, check out their website: http://www.stbaldricks.org/history

While in the crowd at this event I saw a Quinnipiac female go up and have her head shaved. It was one of the most moving things I’ve ever seen. I may not know her reasoning, but I do know that is one of the bravest things I’ve ever seen. How incredible is it that a girl shaved all of her hair off to support childhood cancer?

In the shock and awe of it all one song really came to mind, Lee Brice’s “Love Like Crazy”. It’s probably one of my favorite songs out there, with some of the best advice out there.

Be a best friend, tell the truth
And overuse “I love you”
Go to work, do your best
Don’t outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin’ knees get lazy
And love like crazy

If you ever take one piece of advice from this blog, I’d love it if you could take that message away. Being a best friend is the best gift you can give a person. I know my best friends have made me the person who I am today. They have changed me from a shy, awkward little girl into someone I can be proud of.

Never lie, it is my mom’s biggest pet peeve.

Overuse “I love you”, please do. Tell the people you love that you love them every day, every hour, every minute. You never know when life can change or when tragedy can strike. I’d rather you annoy someone by telling them you love them over and over again than them not knowing exactly how you feel. Love is a small word, but the power of it is impossible to describe.

Do your best, because at the end of the day the only person who has to be proud of you is you. If you do your best than you should feel accomplished and know that you are great just for being you. We can’t be good at everything all the time, but we can push ourselves to do our best and show the world what we’re made of. If we do our best then others will do their best and make the world a better place.

This part is completely selfish, but a guy held the door for me today to go in front of him and I thought it was the most gentlemanly thing ever. Guys do more of that and:

Always treat your woman like a lady
Never get to old to call her baby

If a guy can do that, well they’ve just won any woman’s heart who they want to. Treat a woman like a lady and you will get her whole heart. She’ll never even want to take it back. We value being respected, that’s a fact.

Most importantly readers, Love like Crazy.

Love, Lindsey
