MY GIFT TO YOU

Today is my Birthday! As my gift to ALL 2 of you that read this blog, I am breaking my long standing practice and sharing a photo-OF ME! I recieved the proofs from the White Rock Half and got a good laugh at myself. As usual my mouth is hanging open, becuase I cannot get enough air otherwise. I know Sandra will crack up when she sees me turning off that GPS while crossing the finish line. We ALL give her such a hard time because NO MATTER WHAT she turns that watch off if she stops! You will note that as I posted---it was like running in a parade. I can't remember exactly where the cameras were, but I think around mile 6 or so.

So click here and DON'T YOU DARE LAUGH!! http://orders.racephotonetwork.com/QPPlus/Images.aspx



As I stop and reflect--briefly--BUSY DAY!---I am once again thankful for all the Blessings that God has showered upon me. Wonderful children---the TOP OF THE LINE Grands----great and faithful friends---a lovely home and beautiful woods to live in---food on our table and shoes on our feet---good health--sweet extended families----a husband that God loves deeply---AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST---the ability to still run at 61. I am most thankful that He has chosen to draw me to Him and given me a hunger for Him. He has used circumstances in my life and mentors He put in my path---to create a hunger and desire to know Him intimately. I am thankful!



SO HAPPY BIRTHDAY---OLD GIRL!

oh if I were young again and could run 3 miles I would just be on Cloud nine. But old age came along and caught me unaware and now I can hardly walk a mile. You will be young forever.

Good blog, Lora. We have much to be thankful for and so many times take this for granted. Happy Birthday and hopefully many, many more years of running!!
