I am almost 27 years old, I am raising money for the Overnight Walk- to support the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. I am not in physical shape, so right now I am starting the training process by starting walking and there will be a training walk in May-18 miles! Hope I'm ready by then.
I like school, reading, writing, volunteering, and animals.
I don't like very humid and hot days, cheaters, road rage, and dirty clothes.
The Overnight is Three Weeks Away!
Right now the Overnight is three weeks away. I came to a fundraising standstill about a month ago. Still I have received two small donations that have not been added to my page bringing my grand total to $ 363. I still have to raise another $337 to be able to walk during the fundraiser which is my goal for this and next week. It's been difficult because of my busy and hectic schedule but definitely something I want to do.

Been busy- Haven't blogged in a really long time
Well life took over what can I say...
I have still been thinking about the overnight alot. This last month will be a grind to get together the other 1/2 of the fundraising monies and prepare myself for the walk.

I am really looking forward to this opportunity to help those who are depressed and have been affected by suicide.
It's late, I'll blog more this week !

Today is Sunday, and as March ends and winter has made a last hoorah! I am doing a lot of praying and thinking about what it means to be involved in this fundraiser. I have been thinking about hope. Hope has a lot to do with endings. Hoping is often intertwined with change and new beginnings, which require some things to end and others to begin. Right now, the seasons are changing. I have hope that Spring will bring sunshine, extra energy, and that breeze that just makes you want to get up and dance.
I have to think that people who think about suicide and those who commit suicide lack hope....
