The alarm is set for 3:30.
I am meeting my running ladies at 5:15.
We are doing 10 miles.
I am excited about this.
My clothes are laid out on my bedside table.
My shoes are on the floor beside it, with socks tucked inside.
My contact lens case is on the counter, ready to go.
The water bottle, almond butter, and shot blocks are packed.
Oh, I know this is probably boring as hell to read about. But it is all I am thinking about right now. I had a full day starting at 6:30 this morning at church, meetings all day, a chiropractor appointment, etc. It was a good day (if you don't look too closely - and I am determined not to). I don't need to go looking for trouble. If I want to think about how I was mistreated or slighted, I can, but it will only lead to misery.
Instead I can think about what all I have to look forward to tomorrow. After all of that, I will bake a pie for a friend who celebrates a birthday tomorrow. He asked me to bake a pie for him. I will bring it to our monthly group event tomorrow night. Yummy.
And now, my phone has been ringing and I have been talking, and I have a voice mail from a sponsee - and I better return her call.
I guess I am not going to bed at 7:30 after all.
Thank you God for such beautiful people in my life.
p.s., after talking to my sponsee, now I am baking 2 strawberry rhubarb pies tomorrow!
