marching feet

Today was the March of Dimes walk.
After the last few emotional weeks, I felt like this walk could not have come at a more appropriate time.
I ended up walking by myself this year.


Like last year, I was amazed to be a part of something so big...



I was feeling tired by Mile 4.
But, Mile 4 is called "Mission Mile"...and it made me remember why I walk.
These posts are set up the entire mile.
Heartbreaking and hard to read...but that's why it's so important to do.

Today, I walked for:

Talan and Calla, who continue to inspire me.

But, also, I walked for Cora, Maddie...and for Abby & Lilly, babies I never met, but are in my heart.

Have I been on another planet that I didn't put it together that you were doing this... and walking alone?

I am ALWAYS up for a walk, organized or around the neighborhood - it is my favorite activity. Please call me next time you need a buddy!

(Or call me if you just WANT a walking buddy!)
