    Thought for the week: Someday everything will make perfect sense. So, for now, laugh at the confusion, smile through the tears and keep reminding yourself that everything happens for a reason.

    On Saturday, April 8, I did my first 5k walk sponsored by First Baptist Church Relay for Life team Living Strong. They had a good turnout. I ran three miles in 50 minutes and I paid for it on Sunday. My legs hurt like crazy. I need to get more walking in before next one comes up.
