Pink is a Color, Not a Political Statement
I absolutely love the color pink and always have. When I got to pick out carpet for my childhood bedroom, it was pink. It absolutely broke my heart when my daughter went through a "no pink" phase. So, I was certainly prepared when I got the breast cancer diagnosis to wear a lot of pink. In fact, my new watch happens to be pink. :)
But, I have noticed since my diagnosis that pink has taken on a new meaning. People assume I wear pink for breast cancer awareness. My own husband even asked me if I bought a pink watch in preparation for a possible diagnosis. (I got it between biopsy and diagnosis). When I shop for clothes now, I still find myself drawn to pink, but I wonder what message it will send. The message is I LOVE PINK!!!
I want you to know that every time I wear pink it is not a political statement. I JUST LOVE PINK!!!
