Today I am inspired.
I ran three miles. I walked a little bit, but for the most part, I ran.
I'm going to keep going, too. I'm going to keep running and I am going to train for a half marathon.
I'm going to raise money for a good cause. I know what it is, but I don't want to say what it is yet. I want to ask permission and see if it is ok to reveal any details for my cause. If I ran a half marathon, would you support me? Would you give $5 toward a worthwhile cause? I know I would. I wish you'd consider it.
The more I think about it the more I see that there is a lot in the world that needs some good love. So I think Steve, Corinne and I....we can work to spread some good love. First by being a family together. And then after that - the sky is the limit, folks.
I'm really, really inspired.
I've been writing this blog for 74 days straight. I've been working on my novel a lot. Various events in my life have shown me I know that I can keep going with something, when the going gets tough. I know I can train and do this.
I've been thinking about how to help out the world around us, and make a positive impact on the world. I want to be a good example for Corinne, always. I want her to see what good kindness and determination can do.
There are so many horrendous things happening in this world. There are so many horrendous things happening locally. Did you hear the news bashing Buffalo Teachers today? Are they serious? It should NOT be a parents vs. teachers war. Parents and teachers should be able to work together. Teachers should be praised for all of the hard work they do. Teachers - you all are amazing!!!!!!! All the time you are amazing. Especially when you get up in the morning, you do not want to go to work because it is just too hard, and you still drive in, get out of the car, and you're back in the classroom that morning. Just doing THAT makes me think you each are my hero.
I want to do more good. If anyone wants to run with me....let me know. If anyone wants to give money...let me know. I will give you details, soon.
In the meantime....I don't really need another tattoo to show me that I have hope. I need to be the one to show myself I have hope. And my husband, and daughter, and anyone else who is listening.
In church this week the sister act chorus sang "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine", and it was beautiful. I think I will let my light shine.
