I will be at the start line of the half-marathon. And by 9:00 a.m., it will be over. And then I can stop training for a half-marathon and start training for the August triathlon! I am really weary from all this running. It will be great to add in bike riding and swimming.
Today is Mothers Day. 2 out of 3 of my kids will be coming over later. 100% of my 2 grandkids will be coming too. I am grateful to be a mother of three wonderful adults. My children are people I not only love, but I LIKE them - problems and all. I miss my son terribly and look forward to next year when he will be here with us.
I hope that my mother can see her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, because she really would be pleased. My mom died when I was 19. I was such a drunken mess at 19 and I know I was a disappointment to her. But, oh! how my life changed after I got sober and stayed sober, and I hope that she knows that.
I am being morbid this morning. I think I shall go paint my toenails! And get ready for church! And get ready for the kids coming over! They wanted to take me out, but I do not want to deal with a restaurant on Mothers Day! Heck no! I am going to grill salmon. Have a happy Sunday everyone.
"A clear light seems to fall upon us all - when we open our eyes. Since our blindness is caused by our own defects, we must first deeply realize what they are. Constructive meditation is the first requirement for each new step in our spiritual growth." -- As Bill Sees It, p. 10
