Greetings Ladies, I rarely post but wanted to come and see how wonderful you all did on your walks! Congrats!
Well my walk in Seabrook Texas was small but my heart was big and full of joy and tears that I FINALLY could do something about what happened to me.....
I will do it again every year~ no matter where I live~ for the rest of my life Lord willing.
We passed out so much stuff and no one came but friends from my playgroup that I formed in Jan of this year as I have only been in Texas 2 years this August. But I was still certain that my walk of 9 could make a difference.
(The yearly Greek Festival and the Rowing Clubs event kinda took over the park area.)
I raised a total of $ 840 dollars. One friend raised $90 of that with her family walkers and a friend. So my personal was $740. I thought to myself if each person (of our 9,this includes me and my hubby, so thats 8 got 740 that would have been $5920! more on top of my 740$.
I got a late start and was sick off and on, both sons had rotovirus,one week after the other one,my dryer vent was broke(clogged) during this time and I cloth diaper both kids , along with all the sheets and towels we used due to the rrotovirus,
Husband was out of town twice , and I have an Autistic son(the Pre Ecl one) so I could only go out when he was at school (8-11) with my younger (19 month old). But I did what I could do. No excuses next year!
But next year my personal goal will again be $5000 and we will see who joins me here in Seabrook,Texas, any volunteers? :)
You all did wonderful jobs and I hope my WAT can be like some of yours next year. HUGS and BLESSINGS to all of you,
