Hello to all of my wonderful friends near and far. I am sort of speechless. I have received so many beautiful messages, notes and comments. Each one filled with the kindest thoughts and words of encouragement. So many of you have given your hard earned money and even more than that your hands to help lift me up. I hope you know that I appreciate it more than words can express. I also hope you know that I will do everything I can to, one day, pay it forward....
I am not going to deny, I have had moments where I panic and wonder "Can I do this?" " Do I deserve this?" " What if I can't do it?" I mean, I wouldn't be human if some of these thoughts did not cross my mind, right? But these thoughts are fleeting and I will tell you this, FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION! Period.
I want to update you all on where I am at and ask for your continued support! I have set my goal at $2000 and have raised about $1100, so far! My dear friend, Tejae Floyde, has so kindly blogged about my journey and decided to do a bit of fund raising herself, on my behalf! Tejae has created this gorgeous heart (pictured below) and is going to hold a drawing on July 27th for anyone who donates to my fundraising efforts! Please go to Tejae's blog for details.
Also I want to remind you here about the thank you gift(s) you will receive from me if you contribute.
