What a good feeling it is, to have the light bulb turned back on again last night. It happened with a phone call.
The night I made the decision, to go across America, the first time, I called several people, and told them of my decision. Alzheimers disease, was not even on my mind, when I made the decision. The second person that I called, instantly asked me what charity it was for. I said for alzheimers.
Shortly after that, I told myself it would be to raise awareness about a dreadful disease. Raising money at that time, had not even entered my mind.
The next day, I told an old friend, what I was aiming to do. He told me, in his opinion, it sounded like a worthwhile cause, and goal.
Sometimes I feel doubtful about the good I may be doing. Sometimes, I seem to have changed my goal.
That old friend called me last night.
He told me, I sure had been true to my goal. He told me I was his friend. It is amazing to me, to realize how much I needed that phone call. The timing, the words, they came at exactly the right time.
I realized, after the call, the original goal was still intact, and that no matter what other things have happened, I have been raising awareness since June of 2012 and have never stopped.
I feel good. I’m fine. I’m doing well. I am proud of this time and what I have done. Yep, it’s working, raising awareness about a terrible disease.
