Live Strong

So I met this 77 yr. old man yesterday when I was volunteering for the Policeman/Fireman 5k run. He is an inspiration to me. This run was his 81st and he is working toward a world record. The Japanese have the Americans beat right now but he is determined to change that. He competes in running and swimming. He completed the 5k in 38 minutes. Amazing for someone his age. He was a perfect example of living strong.
My friend Bridgette and I babysat two beautiful little girls yesterday for our friends who are moving to Phoenix. It has been a while since I have been around children and I was awed all over again at what a joy children are. I can see why we are taught to become as little children.
  • They are full of wonder
  • They find joy in simple things
  • They are open and honest
