I didn’t have any plans on writing today and it’s not even morning anymore, but I’m kinda feelin’ it today!
It’s been a while since a HUGE cup of coffee for me, so maybe that’s why my brain is swirling around with thoughts.
This past week has been a challenging one. Long and busy with some good and some bad. I’ts safe to say that I’m glad today is Friday (isn’t everyone?)!
My first thought of the day is how grateful I am for true friendships. It’s always nice to share and receive from those who you know truly care about you. It takes a lot for me to share the deepest depths of my heart with people, so I don’t take it lightly. I really thank God for all of my “girlfriends”. I don’t have many but the ones I do bless my socks off!
Of course coffee has me thinking about a new project. As if I don’t have enough going on already. I’m a little less than a week away from my first 5k. I’m a little nervous, but mostly excited. I’m kind of a perfectionist so I set my bars pretty high. I know I’ll be fine. I’m not exactly where I want to be after 6 months of working out, but boy am I glad I’m not just starting. The thought of that makes me cringe. I have to remind myself of where I came from (couldn’t even WALK a mile). After my race and 40th birthday, I plan to amp up my workout. More 5k’s and some extra stuff too! I’m pretty sure my kids are rubbing off on me.
Speaking of the kids. My boy has been gone this week for basketball. He is having success and as we’ve been communicating (because we are tied at the hip), I’m getting the sense that he’s learning a great deal about himself. I love it. It’s so sweet to see him grow. I’ll be glad when he returns home tomorrow night….only to leave again next week. The kid is having a great summer!
My Breezy leaves tonight for Chicago*sigh*. I’m excited for her, but always miss her when she’s gone. I’m finding that as my kids get older, we are becoming even closer. You might think that would be the opposite, but I don’t think so. They seem to both appreciate home more and the little things mom and dad do with them. They just make my heart swell.
My thoughts are also on my baby Mochaccino (our dog). He’s never been sick but seems to have something going on lately. Gotta get the baby checked out soon. I don’t like the feeling. Don’t worry, he’ll be fine, he’s still leaping off of furniture and stealing undergarments and running from room to room in typical Mocha fashion.
There’s so much more on my mind, but it was good to release a little bit this morning. I feel so blessed. I keep telling my boy to enjoy the journey and you know what, that’s for me too!
Have a great weekend! I’ll post a project soon!
