The Walk

It was all we hoped for and more. We reached our personal goals and we reached our team goal. We headed out with a spring in our step and an umbrella in our hand, determined to go the distance and exhilarated because the friends and family that we asked for help had come through for us; and from the bottom of my heart, I can honestly say nothing feels better than that.

Beth was there along with fellow bloggers and dear friends:

Her sister was there:

And her husband:

And of course her kids:

Anna started out with the most spring in her step:

But she eventually succumbed to the temptation of a little help:

There were even some old people there:

I didn't recognize them but I give them a lot of credit for doing the whole walk. I KNOW it wasn't easy.

All in all it was a wonderful day! Thank you to everyone who helped and everyone who wished us well. You kept the rain away.


  1. It was a wonderful day and I was proud to be a part of it. I especially loved spending time with you and Rhonda. I can't wait for the Jack Club to start.

  2. It was an awesome day, what a great feeling. I love your pictures, especially the one of bouncy Anna. Too funny! ....I don't know what old people you are talking about.....they look like teenagers in love to me!

  3. Wow, bouncy Anna seems so familiar to me.

    And I wonder if you have any idea how cute you and Dad are - SO SO SO CUTE.

    Great photos, great post and I love so much that you guys are there each year.

  4. Mrs. H, you and your husband are so adorable!!!! LOVE! Congratulations on having such an amazing walk. I wish I could have been there to walk with all of you. I did RUN 10 miles (I know!) on Saturday, and I thought of y'all the whole time.


  5. Beth is right... you guys are so cute!
    Love these photos and loved that day.

  6. I felt like I was back at the walk. I can tell you do have a love for photography. It was such a great, rewarding morning. I found that you are never too old to meet new friends and I feel so blessed to have met your family. And you and hubby are NOT old! I am so proud of us for making the 6 miles and not having to scrape anyone up off the pavement.

  7. I didn't see any old people...just wonderful loving family and friends supporting each other!

    If I lived closer, I would have joined you!


Gentle, strong, kind or true, I'd love to hear what you have to say.
Short or long, it's up to you, your comments and thoughts really make my day!
