Before I mention the fundraiser I want to do things a bit out of order. I want to apologize for taking a few days away from the blog. I am once again allowing myself to hear the voice of doubt. I know where it is coming from and I know that the adversary would love to see us fail. And, my poor husband is having to listen to me express worry and then he has to listen to me be upset because I am worrying and I shouldn't be! <sigh> He has been very supportive and said that I was human no matter how hard I tried to strive to do better. I just wish I wasn't quite so human or that I wasn't buying in to those that have doubt or lack the desire to support us. I am way more human than I wish to be!
And, then I received two comments on the blog from two wonderful and supportive people that are out there walking. You can read them on my prior post. I really think that we all truly underestimate the power and influence that we all can have on each other. I truly thank them both for their enthusiasm and support!
I saw this quote posted today on Facebook:
And that's it. Period.
And, so I am back and blogging and working and striving to bring them home....I know....again. I am just volunteering to be the poster child for all those of wavering faith. Ack!
But, today marks the last day of our walkathon, so if you are trick or treating tonight, go an extra bit and reap the benefits of the extra candy! Or forego the candy and do the extra walk knowing how much skinnier and healthier you will be! Ha!
Tomorrow, we will see how everyone did as I am hopeful that there are many more miles out there that are yet to be counted.
AND, we have truly gone a distance.....why in the world do I lose hope?!?
Where are we now on our virtual walkathon?
After all of our recent miles and those that have been reported to us...we have made it to.......
Elk Ridge, Utah!!!!
But sometimes you find the unusual in the usual......
How about the small town community high school? They have super fun teachers that are willing to be goofy and have a good time for the sake of the students:
I just know that I will be just like them tomorrow when the I800A comes in the mail, right?!? Hey, I might even make a video of it! Ummm, well, my children might have some reservations about that! LOL!!!
Till tomorrow! Happy Halloween!
