Goals and Stuff
I have made a goal. Stay strong and fit - mind, body, and spirit. I began exercising again this week... like really exercising. It has felt so good! The boys usually go with me. We walk/run/bike. My body is amazing. It has made four babies, gone through three back surgeries, had a heart surgery. It heals and just continues to do what I ask of it each day. I am so blessed. As I have exercised each night, I have thought about how I could incorporate this into my life as a single mom. I decided that the night before school starts in two weeks, we will have a special dinner and I will introduce a family theme for the 2013-14 school year for all of us. Stay strong and fit - mind, body and spirit will be our theme. We will discuss ways that we can do this and I will give them a special gift - a bracelet with our theme on it. And then we will each work on our family theme each day. Some days will be better then others. Some days won't feel like we succeeded. Some days we will feel like we moved mountains. That's just the way life is. As long as we are doing our best, we are succeeding. ***** In other news, next Thursday is the last day of Summer Semester for me. It has been very, very difficult. I have done my best, though. That's what I ask of my boys and it's what I expect from myself. Fall Semester begins on the 21st. I am learning and growing and using this brain of mine in ways I think it hoped I never would again! I am proud of myself. ****** In yet other news, I love being a mom. These boys of mine are amazing in every single way. We are a team. They know that we are in this together and we continue to put one foot in front of the other. I love these boys of mine! ****** Happy weekend!
