I know you guys are so probably sick of hearing about my walk. You can click that little X in the upper right corner.

I've been just so blessed by millions of things during this walk. I can't describe how much I've been touched by each donation, even the the one can at a time donations, I've raised about $50 in pop can donations!! About double more than I thought I would get (and I still have a couple months to go). I am amazed by the generous people in my life.

The walking has also made me feel much better though the scale is not showing it. And that's a little discouraging but it's made me get a grip on my health, so I guess that's good too!!

The greatest blessing though, the one that hits my heart and can make me cry more than ever (which is quite a bit, thankyou)? It's the blessing that I said I wanted to walk for the Glory of God and His descision to bring my mom home. And it seems nuts, but that's what I wanted to do, I wanted to praise God in a storm, I wanted to change my heart for the anger and sadness that has hung around there too long. I wanted to not think when I hear people complain about their moms think in my head "how blessed are you, you got to know your mom". I heard someone speak the other day (Tawnya) and she said that she's still here because of all those who have died and survived before her. God's not done with her yet, and I would like to think that even though my mom is gone from this earth, that He hasn't finished using her love either. It's a crazy thing how long love can last. And God's not done with all that love.

Jer 31:3 The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: "I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.

It's amazing to see how God is using this walk to "grow" you. I'm not tired of hearing about it one little bit.
