  • This came up today when I needed it most. Yesterday was one of those days that I simply needed a real day of rest and rather than struggle with the idea of missing my walk with Daisy after consistently walking for 59 days I took the day I needed. I was feeling a little guilty about that this morning so your words about no one being perfect really spoke to me. Thanks! - 10/27/2016 9:33:50 AM
