I feel like I am stuck in reflection. I think about life...a lot, probably too much.
When my husband was diagnosed with cancer almost two months ago...I changed.
I see my kids differently.
I see my friendships in a new way.
I offer more grace to my family.
I cling to Christ daily.
I want to learn more.
I want to run more.
I need friends more.
I am searching for God's will and plan.
I want to change and touch lives.
I want to be stronger.
I value post secondary education more. (this happens when you are faced with the idea of losing your husband and supporting your three children solo)
I am determined to finish my Masters (even though it will take years)
I feel refreshed to blog again.
I want to meet those bloggy ladies who have prayed with me along this journey.
I have things to say.
I am ready to get deep.
I have felt the presence of Christ.
I really "LOOK" at my husband. I am always trying to soak in his features.
I continue to pray for God to change me.
I have surrendered.
As I look at getting some type of Christmas card together I came across these old pictures and they make me SMILE. These moments captured are all gifts! I assumed when these pics where taken that I would have many more moments such as these. I now know that this is not always the case. Life changes in a moment.
Each moment captured in my mind each day is a gift.
When you recieve so many gifts you naturally want to GIVE more of yourself to others.
What will this look like in 2012 for me? I am not sure.
My husband still has a long road to go. He is mentally and physically fighting his way through journey and I am doing all I can to be by his side.
Even though his "athletic" days may be over...to me his an Olympic Champion training for his life!
He is inspiring so many people...even ME!
When I am inspired I RUN!! My goal now is simple. Run 100 miles in December and meet the goal of 1,000 miles for the year.
Anyone want to join me?? I am going to need a PUSH to make this happen.
Also be sure to check BACK soooon!!! Something arrived in the mail today and I plan TEST it out this weekend.
HINT: It will involve 36 degree weather!
Hubby supporting me after finish my second Marathon!

Care free days!!
