Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU all for your sweet, sweet comments about my bad news. I didn’t think twice about sharing the information with you because I have found that you, my readers, are such an encouraging community and I know that you will always have my back. The joys and successes in life aren’t in the degrees you have or the money you make. The fullness of life is found in the little things. Thank you for giving me such rich encouragement. I love you all.
I’d like to wish a very happy birthday to my big brother, Adam! Adam’s love and energy just blows my mind. He’s always doing, doing, doing and bringing so much laughter to everyone! He’s been struggling with Inflammatory Bowel Disease for many years now, and he doesn’t let it get him down. In fact, he doesn’t look for people to cater to him, he lives to serve others.
His thoughtfulness brightened my spirits immediately. It’s the little things.
And today was the baby shower for him and his wife! They are expecting their first baby in March (Fitbloggin’ weekend, to be exact)! Adam joined us and charmed the room full of women with his charisma.
Baby things are so cute! I can’t wait to meet this little guy and see his smiles and hear his giggles. Say it with me, “It’s the little things!”
They are such little things!
I had about 3/4 of the cupcake plus much much more food. I definitely didn’t make the best choices, but I will definitely be fueled for my run tomorrow! And speaking of runs…
I had a long run scheduled for this morning, but I found out another food to add to the “do not eat before runs” list: yogurt covered raisins. I had a hayday with them last night and this morning was spent in and out of the bathroom. What can I say? It’s the little things.
My mom and I did a podcast from Yoga Download. We were enjoying the downward facing dogs until our dogs started wrestling between us. It wasn’t as peaceful as yoga should be, but we certainly had a good laugh. It’s the little things.
Anyhow, I’m going to watch Apolo Ohno tear up the ice rink and then head to bed to tackle that run in the morning (before church).
