To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better. Concentrate on this sentence... 'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.

My wonderful niece has started a team in Honor of my mom to walk in our area's Memory Walk for Alzheimer's this year. I have always felt bad when all my blogger friends are talking about going on there memory walks and I have never done one. Well this year I am going to get off my bottom and walk. If you want info. on this walk click on the blog title and it should take you to our link and maybe you will be able to find one in your area. Thanks guys Please join me in supporting a great cause:


  1. I will be walking here in Bend ... with our team! Thank you so much for posting this.

  2. Karen, I made a small donation to your niece's team. Wish it could be more. I will be helping another team in our area as well. Such a worthy cause. I hope your niece does well with her team's fundraising.

  3. Oh! I am so glad you all are walking and thank you so much!!!!

  9. Karen.... thanks for posting this reminder to all of us.....
    I'm glad you'll have the opportunity to walk this time...

  10. I had done the walk last year here in CA and I along with my friend raise major bank with garage sales and parties at restaurants...we worked hard and I think I was driven by the fact that it was right after my Dad passed away. Needed to feel like I was honoring him. This is year I was bummed as I could be about him. I wasnt going to do the walk but I think I need to kick myself out of my lump and walk. Maybe be on the news again like last year. I may not raise as much money but it something.
    Thanks for walking!!!!! Go Purple!!!!
