Inspiration to walk
As my mom and I were nearing the end of our 3 day, 60 mile journey on the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, my mom reminded me about her dad, my grandpa. Grandpa loved to walk in his local mall, Memorial City Mall. He would go every day during the week and racked up 5,000 miles at Memorial City Mall! He won a free pair of tennis shoes and his name was put on a plaque. Mom and I talked about going to visit and see if the plaque was still there. As we were digging deep looking for inspiration to make every step, my mom reminded me about my grandpa. This is a picture of my grandpa with his granddaughters, my sister and me, at my mom's wedding to Don in 1995.
