Firstly, thanks to those that take the time to read my endless ranting…The next couple weeks will be without fail, a whirlwind of emotions.
Today, was an EPIC win day…I got to sleep in after consuming more wine than I probably should have, and having a conversation on the phone with my dear friend from the Air Force. I woke up to having a 13 year old daughter, and I felt more blessed than I could have ever imagined. We showered, dressed and hit Target so J could spend her birthday money…she got super cute clothes, and I got some amazing feety jammies. Yes, I am still a child at heart.
I also got my sissy and I the brightest orange tanks ever created. I am so excited to run this marathon with her. Although I know this may be a “one and done” deal, I pray I finish strong.
After we got home my neighbor called in distress because her car broke down so I quickly saved the day by picking her and her son up and taking them home. I realized after running across the yard to her house that my knee was still in distress. Bah. (So while at Target we picked up a biking helmet for me, and I plan on biking tomorrow!) I took some Motrin, added in some icy hot, and put my leg up for the afternoon.
The girls were having a great time hanging out and being goofy in the backyard. I snapped some amazing photos, and was able to get this one printed and framed via Walgreens. I of course love surprises, so made them line up and close their eyes while I passed out their framed photos. They were truly touched, and we had an awesome group hug.
And now as the night closes, and the temperature is dropping I find myself in awe of my life. It hasn’t been without struggle, but man-I am truly blessed. I have an amazing husband, 2 awesome daughters, great friends, a beautiful home, and a great job.
So now, in the quiet of the night as I listen to old school Dave Matthews Band I find myself nostalgic to a life I once had while appreciating my life now…God truly has a plan for us all, we just have to listen to His words…
With that, I thank you all for your support, love, and continued love. I wouldn’t be where I am at today without you ALL.
Next week I will bring back my miles, my heart, and my efforts.
