Time for a quick gratitude list. My life is full. Even when I feel empty, my life is full. I'm thankful for:
*A trip to the MN State 14U hockey tournament this coming weekend for my oldest daughter Ryan. She and her team have worked their BUTTS off for this. I'm so excited to see her SO excited. She can't sleep. She's her mother's daughter.
*A WIN in the District championship for Reese's team. She scored the gamewinning goal in overtime and I may or may not have kicked another mom in the head with my boot.
*A little 8 year old boy with who LOVES when his mom comes to watch him play around at Memorial!
*This beautiful little boy, my nephew Cohen, who has led a more difficult life that any 20 month old child should EVER have to live.....
*My friends J and B who have continually showered me in support. Very few of my "tangible" friends are runners but yet I'm so blessed to have a couple who really seem to understand what it means to me. SO much help with my kids. Just a quiet understanding.
*My "internet" friends. Honestly, I would not have ever believed I would have "internet" friends but I must admit there are a few who are SO NEAR and DEAR to my heart.
*Mail therapy from an internet friend that totally makes my day:)
*My husband..... 99 leg rubs, 2 tubes of icy hot, at least 100 "I love you's", 4 Netflix seasons of Modern Family, 4 bottles of Cabernet, nachos, notes of encouragement, spoken words of encouragement, personal research, blank checks, strong hands, bear hugs, and a lot of coffee made MY way.
I'm not overly present in blogworld these days. For those potential 6 readers that I don't keep in contact with but perhaps you read my blog and wonder if I'm still alive, I am:)
Short and sweet. I am once again down for the count. A recent MRI for a pain in my right leg has left me with a useless Boston confirmation hanging on my bulletin board. This is somewhat significant injury #4 in 3 years of running. A WHOLE lot of info and thoughts going through my mind.. I will have some time to process them in the next few weeks and make a plan for the future here. I feel a change comin' on...I'm ready:)
