Assumptions

I think it’s only human for us to have assumptions in certain situations when it comes to what is thought to be “the norm” in life, no?  We assume that if there is something big in our lives, or something that we put our heart and souls in to, that those we consider closest to in life, will support those big things…at least I do…or did…

assume

But assuming is a naughty naughty word, and it truly does end up slapping you in the face from time to time.  And for a split second I caught myself being sad about the person(s) that don’t support my crazy #keepmovinforward mantra, page, and blog.  I looked into my husband’s eyes with sadness, and he reminded me that HE will forever be my best friend, MY PERSON…and suddenly the sadness vanished. I’ve accepted that sometimes friendships run their course, and that is ok.  It’s all the circle of life, right?

Since learning of my hubby’s upcoming deployment I have been flooded with phone calls, texts, comments and emails from friends and family. And despite crying more than I’d care to admit, I am also counting my blessings.  Because you don’t get through the hard stuff without your friends and family.

Here's a pic my friend Andrea made after I spectated and ran the last few miles of her first marathon with her.  One of my all time favorite running memories.

With that, I thank you all for being just plain awesome.  I love the fact that I’ve met so many amazing people through this community, and that you have chosen to join me on this journey.  My hat goes off to you all!

Moving forward, I will continue to rant about running, recipes, and real life adventures.  Let’s see where the upcoming year takes us!

Cheers!
