I kind of forgot that I have a blog.
A few updates…I finally jogged that 5k. I can say that it was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done…not the race itself but the 9 weeks of training beforehand. Through the whole process I definitely came to realize that I am a quitter. If I hadn’t made a public declaration and asked for sponsors to raise money for my friend’s adoption, I would have quit…every day. BUT the feeling of accomplishment that I had when I FINISHED was absolutely amazing. Not because I finished with a good time (Because I definitely didn’t) but because I finished something that was hard for me.
I realized that I need to challenge myself more…so I signed up for a Spin class. Oh my word. It. Is. hard. I have not been able to say the words “I started going to a spin class” without immediately following it up with “It’s so, so hard.” The first 3 classes, I seriously spent the whole class thinking, “I can’t do this, I can’t do this…” which was all the more reason that I knew I needed to stick it out.
I helped put together a Craft Fair for my adopting friends as another means of helping to raise money for their very expensive process. It was so great! I am still on a high from the whole thing. I was amazed by the generosity of people, I love seeing the Body of Christ at work. We raised twice as much money as I had prayed for AND I bought a bunch of cute items. Such as this:
Isn’t that the best? The weary world rejoices!!
I finally got my first smartphone
I’m in love with Instagram
I have the cutest pumpkins on my front porch
I love the anticipations of the holidays
I am looking forward to seeing my family in TWO DAYS!
