Day Five

Perspective. This is what I got on my run today. An old friend has been in and out of the hospital for the last few months with surgeries and numerous health issues. I read on FB that she is back in PHX in the hospital again. She has been in my thoughts and prayers. As I set out this morning I couldn’t get her out of my mind. Was it cold out? Yes. Am I really out of shape? Yes. Am I lucky to be where I am at this moment? Yes. All of that seems so trivial when someone you know is fighting. Fighting for all sorts of different reasons. So this morning out on my run I gained a little perspective. How far I went isn’t important. Did I reach my minimum of a mile? Yes I did, the rest isn’t important. What a journey the next 360 days are going to be…….


  1. Awe, I REALLY liked this one!!! It's very well-written, too!! :)

  2. thanks Åmanda we really need to hang out more. It is amazing how life has a way of smacking you upside the head sometimes to remind you of what really is important. I am just happy to be alive and get to see my kids smiling faces everyday. It is amazing what we take for granted. It was great seeing you today.

  3. I am so glad you are doing better and on the road to recovery Peggy. Would love to get together soon.
