One Grandma's walk across the country

I enjoy living and intend to do so for a long time. I enjoy spending time with my family and enjoy doing things with them. I want to continue to be active with my children and grandchildren. I don't want to be the old fat granny who can't do things because I don't feel well enough.

I want to fit in seats, theater and airplane and I want to be able to run up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial one more time at least.

I have walked across the nation twice that I have ...

I have walked across the nation twice that I have recorded and intend to do it again this year.

“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” - Steve Maraboli

Your a beautiful Desert Tortoise!

Just wanted to let you know I was dropping out of the World Walking. With the 2015 5% Winter Challenge I joined, I am feeling rather overwhelmed. I also tore my right shoulder rotator cuff, and being right handed the computer is painful except for short periods at a time. The World Walking looked like such a fun thing to do, and I might come back to it later. I will check in with you two now and then, and see how you are doing! Have fun in your travels!

Bless us all, that as we live
We always comfort and forgive
We have so much, that we can share
With those in need we see around us everywhere.

Wishing you and all those you hold dear a wonderful holiday season and a blessed new year.
