Good morning Mintdom!
Yesterday, we had our TYG 1st Saturday of the month walk (our Red Shoe Campaign to support the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity) on the W&OD Trail. There were only three of us this month. I think that there are many people on vacation, and it is hot and humid so that probably accounted for the low number.
One thing that I noticed is that my back did not begin hurting until we almost reached the turn-around spot AND I went further then I went before! Whoo hoo! Three months of walking and I can FINALLY see some progress! Jeepers – it DOES seem like it takes an awful long time, but I am determined to continue.
Maybe it seems like this journey is easy for me – I want to let you know that it is not. I struggle each morning to get out of bed at 5:00 AM to get ready to walk. Trust me, I would rather stay under my covers in my nice cozy bed then to get up even before it is light. I also do not like to sweat (I am too much of a girlie girl for that LOL) and it is hot and humid in the mornings right now. Having said all that, I want to stop now, and take this opportunity to thank my family and friends for helping me in this journey. My family and friends bolster my determination. I do not think for a minute that I could do this without you. I am such a lucky Mint!

I would appreciate it if you could share your friendship stories. Many of my family members are my friends too, so feel free to include family members. If you have other quotes on friendship, I would love you to share that here www.Mintdom.Wordpress.com. Thank you for being in my life and a part of my journey.
That is it for the weekend edition of Mintdom.
Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to
Life is good!
