    Happy Anniversary to you and Marc, Wendy. Have a great day. I’m enjoying your posts on your walk. You made me laugh out loudly and for several minutes on the one comment this week about the possibility of what you might be forced to drink if you ran out of water, which you indicated you did NOT share with your son. I was also moved to tears the day when you described what all you have had to endure in your lifetime after being hit by a car as a teenager. For the last few years, I have been entertained, as well as educated by your “Lessons Learned from the Flock”. Your humor and whole demeanor has always made me wish I lived closer to you, as I would love to have a friend just like you to do things with. I knew you had many problems from the Lyme disease as you’ve talked about it in your article, but I don’t think I had ever heard about the car accident and the many surgeries you’ve had to go through and the extreme pain you have endured. When I read that day’s account of what you had gone through and why the walk was so important to you, I was going through severe pain in my left foot from bone spurs and arthritis and had been feeling pretty down because of the pain I was experiencing. After reading your article and realizing ALL the things you have personally gone through, have endured the pain and are now walking after being told you wouldn’t just because of your incredible inner spirit that I’ve come to know through your writing; you gave me the incentive to get through what I was experiencing, which I realized was nothing compared to what you have overcome. The fact that you have maintained such a zest for life and how you motivate your children to not give up is also having an effect on those of us you don’t know, but feel we know you from your articles and blogs. You are an inspiration to me and I’m sure to everyone else who follow you through your writing. God bless you, Wendy, and I pray that you and your children one day are completely healed from your Lyme disease. Take care and have a wonderful day with your lucky hubby!

      You can’t imagine how your comment touched me. When I hit the send button, sometimes I don’t know if anyone out there on the internet even reads my words. Hearing back from someone who not only reads but who also appreciates the work is nothing short of a gift. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
