It is time again … my third trip to walk in a 3-Day (www.the3day.org) event for Breast Cancer Research, my second time to walk in San Diego! I’m excited for the trip.
Every year we participate in this walk I have so many thoughts as the days near to leave on our journey …
- I am thankful for my health and that I am able to walk 60 miles in honor and memory of those who can’t
- I am reminded of my friends, family of friends, and friends who have been impacted in their circles by Breast Cancer
- I am grateful for those who so generously contribute to make this journey possible. I represent you every step of the way.
- I am hopeful that one day Breast Cancer won’t be a concern among women, that my nieces and daughters of my friends might not face this disease
- I am prayerful for safety throughout the trip – flights, on the walk, in camp and against any injury
- I am encouraged by a SURVIVOR on our team, and looking forward to getting to know her better and the work she is doing through Komen
- I am proud to be a part of an event that is making a difference in the lives of women across our country
A walk for me always is representative of everyday life. You have to get up, get into your gear – whatever that looks like for you, and hit the pavement to accomplish your task one foot in front of the other. For these 3 days, my task is to walk 60 miles, camp out at night, and make a difference in a cause. When I get home, my task returns to normal, however the mission remains the same. To walk everyday in faith, in thankfulness, and in obedience to what I have been called.
