Sunny California...

We're off to California tomorrow for the Susan G. Koman 60 mile Breast Cancer walk. I'm ready. I'm ready because we have worked our tails off for it...and because I've been thinking so much about all the people we met when we walked for MS that made an impact on me. It's the perfect time, really, to be doing this...

To remember how good it feels to follow through with something
To remember that there are bigger issues than what each of us face in the daily grind
To remember to be thankful for our health and our families and our strength(s)
To remember to be cautious with our lives and our bodies and each other
To remember how big this world really is
To remember what it feels like to really push ourselves

To remember that each of us have the power to help others whether it's raising money, or donating money or walking beside someone or listening to someone tell their story or giving away your last Luna Bar or JUST BEING THERE.

Thank you, to all of you, for making this trip possible for me - whether financially or emotionally. Thank you to my sweet husband for going with us (even though he gets to sleep in a nice warm hotel room while we're sleeping in tents). Your face at the finish line will be the highlight of day three, I feel certain.

I'm keeping a journal for one of the magazines that has been supporting us along the way. I promise to share with you here as well.

Peace to all.
