10 nails and two pennies on this early morning speed walk through my neighborhood. #houstonwalks#noflat
Serving my country...and still being able to do my part...my way...means more to me than anyone could ever understand. I still remember all those many years ago as I boarded the plane...trying to be tough ...but breaking down as the wheels came off the ground...and my Mommy was no longer in my view. I did it because I had to...I wanted to be something greater... do something greater and I had NO IDEA where it would lead me. I often wish that I would have stayed active longer... but God has found a way for me to still serve my country..and in these small but epic moments it Reminds me ...that this lil girl who grew up in Beaumont Texas knew that she had a purpose that wud be greater than she even could fathom. To every Veteran...I salute you...I thank you...I honor you. I look forward to continuing to serve...I so thank the City of Houston...The Veterans Special Events office...and the Mayors Office for believing in my gift. I am humbled and honored- DaTruth
Been too busy to post these... from several days walks. 71 items that could puncture a tire, 17 cents, a star and a key. Must be a #luckysign#nailsinthecity
