The Walk
The MS Walk was this past saturday. It was a cloudy, warm and windy day (once we got walking we were very thankful for the clouds). There was such a neat group from Todd's company. They are all so kind and supportive. They said such sweet things about Todd - how his faith has been such a blessing to all of them. Hard to hold back the tears.

We walked together (for the most part)- with Todd leading the way. He set a brisk pace, pushing little Hannah in the stroller as he went. We all managed to finish the entire walk. It was encouraging to see how many people were there to support those suffering from this dibilitating disease. There were people carrying little babies, pushing toddlers in strollers, and so many people with dogs. I loved the dogs - made me long to have one again. As we approached the finish line they announced each group by name, and there were people lined up on either side of the road yelling and cheering and applauding. It was so heart-warming.

The best part is they raised quite a bit of money for research. It is our prayer that very soon they will find something to cure this disease - and so many others that devestate people's lives. Thank you all so much for your support with prayers and gifts. I love you guys.

Now....I took lots and lots of pictures, none of which I can post right now. My sweet daughter-in-law's camera battery died after about two pictures - so we sort of shared. She has my memory stick right now because she wanted to use some of the pictures for my grandaughter's school project. I promise that as soon as I get it back I will post lots of pictures - because, really, I think I got some pretty good shots for a change.

The "Phantom of the Opera" was all I dreamed it would be. The music, the sets, the actors.....absolutely fantastic!! I could see it over and over again.

I must run. Time to practice (piano lessons today), and we must get to the polls and cast our votes. Exciting times here in Texas! We're praying for God's best for our country (hard to know just what that is this time around).

Thank you again for your love and concern and prayers for Todd and for us.

I'm glad the MS walk went so well. I think I told you that I did it once a few years ago and it was such fun.

Also glad you loved Phantom. I'd like to see it again sometime when I could understand the words!

Texas was pretty important today in the large scheme of political stuff!
