Tomorrow is the Take Steps walk for Crohns-Colitis in Sacramento, CA. Last year, Kady was the honored hero. I remember walking around the state capitol and thinking "This must be like 3 or 4 miles!" It was all I could do to make it but it was progress because the year before, I sat it out. When I got home, I tracked it. It was barely over a mile! lol.... That was 2 months into my spark journey. This year? That is gonna be a cake walk! (did I say cake??? I certainly hope so!!).
Kady has raised nearly $4000.00 for the CCFA and when we walk tomorrow, in my heart, besides Kady,I am going to be carrying HISBLONDIE's boy, and I am going to be carring Cheryl (ATREATFORME) and I am going to be walking and praying for a cure for this terrible disease. I am also going to be thinking about my progress in this last year and how far I have come but more importantly, how far Kady has come.
KRAWRS asked me today how Kady is doing and she is doing great. Amazing, even. SHe has so much energy and just a fabulous zest for life. It looks like she will probably have to have an adjustment surgery this summer but we can deal with that.
One of the things I want to pass on is this: When you think something is the worst thing that can happen, sometimes it's not. Sometimes it is just something you have to go through to have the best life you can.
Tomorrow is going to be a great day and I am excited for my small part in finding a cure and raising awareness . I will post pictures! Have a great Saturday. I dare you.
