For My Running Friends...

I want to know what music you run to.  Just your favorite upbeat music or is there a method to your selection process.  Below is a pic of my current playlist for running - and because most of you know me, you won't be surprised to learn that these songs were methodically selected because they are all very close to 140 beats per minute.  Luckily, the list is long enough that, set to shuffle, I haven't gotten bored with it yet since I obviously can't run the full length of this playlist.

So, what do you like?  What motivates you?

(I crack up every time I listen to Hey Ya thinking of Jessica helping my 3 month old Boone shake his little body to that song!)

These Two

There are days when things get crazy and I forget to count my blessings. Days when this mom job is so hard that  I don't take the opportunity to be grateful for these two little beings that I've been blessed with the job of raising.  And it leaves me wondering am I everything that they need?  Do I wish time away?

 I do know that I am blessed that they are forgiving and easily forget what I may have done wrong yesterday, or even a moment ago, that their arms are ever ready to hug their mama.  I know it won't be like this for long...

Brody, I know that I am so lucky to look into these beautiful eyes every day and to get to listen to the most infectious laugh on the planet

I am so grateful that my Boone is has the kindest heart and the gentlest touch which can make all the bad things disappear, if only for a moment.

Thank you My Boys, for allowing me to be a better person and for enriching my life in a way I didn't know was possible.  Thank you for loving me unconditionally despite my shortcomings.  Thank you for being you... just you two...
