Life in Another Chapter

Life changed for my family yesterday. In the best possible way. I went to visit my son's family today. It is heartbreakingly beautiful. You probably all know what I mean, something so beautiful and so touching that it actually makes your heart hurt. That is what it was to see my son with his daughter. Oh my.

I am spending quality time with my granddog. I am not a dog person, but I just love this dog! He is so affectionate and easy to care for. I am grateful that my daughter in law trusts me enough to let her little puppy come and stay with me while she is in the hospital.

I wrote to my coach today to let her know why I have stopped obsessively sending her e-mails asking her crazy questions about my marathon. Amazing how a new grandbaby can distract one from worrying about a marathon! I don't know if anything else could have done the job quite like this!

I am a happy and grateful woman. That is about all I have to say. I thank God.

I could never have imagined the miracles that would unfold in my life when I finally surrendered. Congrats, Grandma..
