yesterday was the autism walk for autism speaks. my goal was to raise $500. as soon as i made it, i immediately thought, “holy shit, there’s no way i’m going to meet that. why did i make this so high?” thanks to the support of my friends and family i was able to raise $630 by the walk, and i know of more friends that want to donate! i was absolutely astounded by this. i have never been so shocked, surprised, and proud to call these people my support group. hopefully someday we will find a cure, and E will be able to tell everyone all of my secrets. until that day, i will keep setting my bar higher than i think is attainable, just so i can be as impressed with everyone i know as i was yesterday.
