What can I say? I love to run. I've run 4 full marathons and 6 halfs. But I love God more and I'm determined to run this race of life for Him to receive the ultimate prize of Heaven. I'd like to share my thoughts with you. You can agree or disagree. Comment or don't. You can read or not read. But it's here if you want it. Enjoy! .

Thankful Week - Day 2 (Friends)

Day 2 of Thankful week which happens to also be the last day of school before Thanksgiving Break. I could definitely be thankful for that. I need a break. I love that we get a week now. Can't wait for next week. Going to start Christmas decorating this weekend. The boys have been asking for a couple of weeks now. But don't worry...not forgetting about Thanksgiving. Still want to focus on it all this week and give thanks to God above for so many blessings. Today I'm very grateful to God for so many wonderful friends.

If I can't hang out or spend time with my family, there's nothing I enjoy more than spending time with friends. I don't really have one best friend anymore. I guess I have a select few that I consider my closest friends, but I also have a huge number of people that I could just call "friends". From church friends to Lipscomb friends to former classmates and many others....it's just such a blessing to have so many people to talk to, laugh with, lean on, encourage, get encouragement from, and love. We've leaned on friends a lot during this last year and they've made it much easier to deal with our struggles and tough days. We've been overwhelmed with the generosity of so many friends in our lives. My cell phone is full of numbers....my Facebook friend list is packed....there are so many people I know I could always call on and I'm trying hard to be that support right back to them. Friends are such a gift from God and I'm blessed to have so many and to have had so many over the years of my life. God is good. John 15:13

I love God, Griffin, my Girl, and my Guys.

Keep runnin'. The PRIZE awaits. (Php. 3:14)
