WE DID IT! My words will fail me if I try to describe what all of us experienced this past weekend. It was triumphant for all of us. Only this experience could reveal some of the greatest joys and challenges in life. No matter what the weather brought on, no matter how many blisters popped, and no matter how badly you wanted to just give up, when your mind and heart perseveres it can accomplish the unthinkable.
What a pleasure to walk with my heroes! This walk has brought us closer to the cure, and I am so glad we were part of that step.
Love you all to the Max!
Message from Alice:
I, too, am honored to have walked with all of you! I am in awe of you and am grateful to have had a glimpse of the very best bit of the human spirit. I heard the term recently “true Yankee grit”…that’s what you’ve got! You also have hearts of gold, enormous compassion, and great senses of humor! I look forward to getting together again very soon!
Thank you for everything.
PS I have a few pictures of us at the beginning of the walk and my hubby took a few at the end. I will TRY and forward them….xo
Message from Dottie:
You guys are the greatest-thanks for all your patience with this old BROAD. thanks for taking the time to walk with me. This experience was one I think we all will remember for a long time. All your high energy was contagious. At times I was a little envious of your youth and stamina. The world is a better place because of all you young women. For me it is remembering that the little things we do for one another are the most important. The tears on Gina’s face as she thanked us for walking. the children on the corner giving out lemonade. I am so looking forward to doing this again. It has made me realize that we should always give it a try no matter what the outcome. There are many more things to be accomplished. I love you all and I am grateful for the sore feet, knees, back, and wrist. God bless you all for what you do!!
