How is it already the end of February? I mean, it’s a short month and all, but wow! So much has been happening and the days are just disappearing.
A Few Updates:
1) House is under contract – yippee!! A really good contract to boot. Closing scheduled for April 6, the count down is on!
2) No interesting results from bloodwork/doctor’s visit. Nothing surprisingly there – all this stress and winter blues and baby germs and Girl Scout cookie season and I just can’t expect my body to be operating at its peak all the time. So I’m trying to eat better and rest more and not work out as hard (but just as frequently, because there is still an April marathon on my calendar after all).
3) I got older. Hello 36. Birthdays get significantly less interesting the older I get. But I’ve learned to drink only good wine with good friends on these occasions. Good wine is key.
4) Mom had a rough couple weeks. Damn radiation. So there was some additional stress and anxiety til she got things under control.
I wish I could cross some things off my never ending to do list but it seems like everything is just “pending” right now. The house, my training, mom’s health, travel plans, race registrations… so how does one live in the midst of such uncertainty? Of what can I be certain? What keeps me moving forward, however small the progress? As I sit here pondering this very question I scroll through my Facebook feed and see a post from my church:
Embrace the circumstances in your life right this very second! Begin to see your circumstances as a stepping stone on the way to becoming all that Christ has created you to be.
If we don’t embrace it & trust Him, we can’t progress!
Sometimes He whispers, sometimes He shouts, but He is always near and always listening. And for this very moment, that is enough. At least at the end of my run and swim workouts tonight I can check those boxes off my to do list. One day at a time. Sometimes that’s all we can do.
