Yesterday was the CCFA Take Steps walk that I've been hyping up around here;) And it was a great day -- beautiful weather, wonderful people and an inspiring energy.
I was once again reminded in the most lovely way, how lucky I am to have the friends and family I do. I was surrounded by so many of the people I love most in this world! They really do help make my world work and I don't know what I would do without them. An old family friend even surprised me by coming with his wife and it made my heart swell.
My Little Buddy, J, sporting his Poo Crew Spirit.
My hubs takes such good care of me, keeps his eye out for me to make sure I don't need anything and reminding me not to push myself too hard.
My sweet mom was here from Nor Cal. She's been my biggest supporter every day for my whole life and I love her to the moon and back.
We love these kiddos SO very much.
My best girls and their girls (minus A and the lone boy J.)
I was able to walk a little further along the route this year with the help of my crutch and then I hitched a ride in the wagon again for the rest.
Thanks to so many of you, I was able to raise close to $2,200! And my team, the Poo Crew, will come in close to $9,000 when all the totals from yesterday are entered. Can you believe that! We sure did kick some serious IBD booty this year, while spreading education to so many more patients.
Being so empowered feels so good!
