Friday February 05, 2016

I walk because I have something to say. I walk because right now I can. I walk because I want others to understand what PD is and the costs to the community. I walk because it's the right thing to do.

Life Lessons

Friday June 19, 2015

Life lessons. I find, at times, they are really hard to take in. I have discovered these past couple months that I do not really care to write/blog/share when I feel unsure or confused. But today I woke up with the sense that I needed to do just that.
