Blog Your Blessings Sunday


If you care to join us acknowledging our blessings go here: Blue Panther

A friend in my apartment building asked me if I would like to join their family on a 5 KM walk over two bridges in Portland on the 17th of May. I like to walk so. of course, I said yes. We are walking for an organization called NAMI and that includes all kinds of mental illness. My friend has done it for 5 years already. This will be my first time.

Of course, the organizers want you to collect financial support for NAMI. I am usually too timid to ask anyone for support but I did ask a few friends at church and, through their generosity and my small donation, ended up with $105.00. THESE generous people that contributed to my pledges are my blessing this week. Thank you! I am so glad that our donations can help people in WA state even tho we are walking in OR.

Soooooooooooo, thank you, Yvonne, Elaine, Kathy G., Kathy H., Eunice, Gretchen, Roni, George and Joyce and me! You are a blessing to me and NAMI.

Well, we made it althought the weather was above 85 during the walk! I took quite a few photos so hope to share some later on. Three miles is not too far to walk usually but the heat and the slowness we had to proceed made it seem like a longer walk and I am glad to be home.

Blessings as you walk and as you give of yourself in service to others, Paulie.

You are a good egg. I am glad you did that. You are a good neighbor, too! I think no contribution is small.

This is such a nice blessing :) If everyone helped just a little bit what a better place this world would be. :) Happy BYB Sunday, and I hope you have a goodly week ahead :)

About Me

My photo
WELCOME to my blog. I hope you will return often.

I am on my third digital camera, all Olympus. I enjoy using it and sharing my photos. I also enjoy writing. I hope to share a little of each on this blog. My main blog is Postcards From the Northwest.

Kerri and I will continue to add benches to "For the Love of Benches Continued . . . " blog also. It is good to continue to share with her!

Continuation of the Kiggins House Re-model photos were lost when my computer crashed.

The latest city project, TURTLE PLACE, will unfold here as I have time to add photos. It is complete and maybe I can find enough photos someday to show you the final results. Next project after the two I am working on now. . .
