I've Walked Miles in My Shoes

Since returning from Haiti I have been overly giving and sacrificed much.  It amazes me the sacrifices that you are willing to make once you find your passion in life.  For the ladies... I've not had a manicure, pedicure (feet are ROUGH), gotten my hair done or trimmed (not even once) and I've been wearing the same pair of run down shoes for over 1 year and slipping when walking on to smooth surfaces because the bottoms are so worn.  My feet have been wet each time it rains because the front of my shoes are separating from the soles.

From my past posts, many of you know that I am still trying to raise money for my next mission trip which has been pushed back numerous times.  I am not giving up, however, I am sacrificing all the wants and have sacrificed many of the needs in order to reach a goal to fulfill my passion.  I am determined to be the change I wish to see in the World and I'm not looking for a pat on the back...  I simply want to say THANK YOU!

If ever there has been a time when I seemed ungrateful for the support anyone has given me, please charge it to my head and not my heart.  The last two months have been extremely trying financially and emotionally and I appreciate everyone who has been there in every way. 

If you fed me, provided a couch or bed for me to lay my head on, gave me a ride, gave me a job, lended an ear, prayed for me, prayed with me, gave encouraging words of wisdom, sent positive and uplifting e-mails or text messages...

Special Thanks to:
LaDonna Johnson (my mother)
Sanford Smith (my father)
Wanda Johnson (my grandmother)
Susan Strange (my new BOSS!!)
Bilal El-Amin
Shawna Jackson Taylor
Charlesetta Johnson
Misty Hankin

These names were not listed in any particular order. You have all been there in some way and I couldn't be more grateful.  If ever you need me, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Much love from a heart that keeps on giving,
