A Reminder of God's Grace

Hi all!!!  Happy Tuesday!  I got an email this morning reminding me that the Firefly Run is in ONE month....For some reason seeing that in print sent shock waves through my body....I have to hurry and get skinnier!!!  IN ONE MONTH!!!  AHHHHHH!!!!  The good news is that I was able to work out last night...had a good workout.  I am still primarily doing the stationary bike (recumbent) but have really been able to increase the resistance level during my ride.  I build to the level of intensity that I can still maintain a solid pace...stay there for a period of time and then slowly decrease to cool down level for the last 5 minutes...I am doing an hour total.  Then I worked the lower back, upper body (shoulders and upper back) and then a short leg workout. 

Tonight is Volleyball practice with the fierce Lightening Strykers!!!  The girls are great fun...So I always look forward to Tuesday nights. 

Today is my cousin Kay's Birthday...She passed away in December 2009.  She had wonderful sense of humor, loved to laugh and had her life struggles as well.  It was a life cut way too short... but I am blessed to have had her in my life for 32 years.  She left us with lots of good memories and an adorable son...Carter (who is now 15-I can't believe it!).  Katy...you are missed...Happy 35th Birthday!

Not to be too dark...but I guess that this does remind me that I should cherish the life I have and those around me.  Life truly is a gift...This Journey is really about the gift of Life for me.  As I strive to take better care of myself,  I really want to live this life to the fullest.  Do what I can to take care of this life and leave something of worth behind.  A reminder of God's Grace! 

I have been getting feed back that some of you out there are finding it difficult to leave comments on the blog.  I apologize for not being more knowledgeable about this whole thing.  I know that there are a few different ways to leave comments...I have made changes to the settings so that anyone can comment...even anonymously.  I guess if there are any tech gurus out there that have any suggestions....PLEASE let me know.
