Winters last stand?

  So the wicked will of Winter continues to fight against the sprouting of Spring....a real battle unfolding this week. I will continue my streaking regardless! Today sunny, 40 degrees, and a mild north wind, so it was really perfect!!! I ran for 31 minutes and felt good! Funny how the miles can add up if you run everyday!
   I wanted you all to know that my family has found some healing! We have seen good things happening and I appreciate your thoughts and friendship through all this....everyone has troubles and trials, what would life be like without them? You know the worn out axiom "what won't kill you makes you stronger"? Some truth to that!!
   On another note, you may remember a couple of weeks ago I wrote about a friend of mine from Boy scouts who passed away from cancer, well just this week another of my old Boyscout buddies died of a stroke! This is obviously a reminder to live each day to its fullest and treasure the ones you love! I've been driving Sandy crazy telling her how much I love her!!!:) Hey, I'm up to 15.76 miles so far this week! There could be a marathon in my future!:) Peace!!

Your post reminds me to take these days as they come, love and embrace all of the goodness in our lives and relax about the things that we can't control...which is everything!
I've had two recent losses and some bad news about someone I love and it's just that part of life that we have to accept and then, keep on loving.
Thank you.

I'm so happy to hear that things have begun to turn around for your family, if not the situation you've been handed than at least acceptance that it is what it is.
