Apparently I have no idea how to turn this picture over.......Oh well you get the idea!
Wow, what a great day! It started out with a gym full of people! Jim, Tara, and I sat in the back room in wonder - wondering what the heck are we going to do with this gym FULL of people! That's not the total truth...we knew what we were going to do, we had it down to a science but the way we felt when they just kept piling in was something that can never be described! The workout in itself was great but will never measure to the feelings inside. The endless thank yous, the hugs from someone I had just met an hour before, the compliments, it was just one of those WOW we did it moments... My athletes thank me every day...no matter what I put them through they always leave thanking me.
Then, the best part of my day happened...I cooked Thanksgiving dinner while my kids did some interesting things in the "background". I have a lot of it video taped but I can't get the file to download...maybe after further investigation I can get those on here. But what I liked the most is that we all had to face what we feared the most. Change! No one really knew how to face it....we laughed together, we prayed together, we cried together, and we found that no matter what even if things are different we were with each other and that is what really matters in the end. Family is being with the ones you love when they need it the most. I needed my kids to be silly today, to create new memories, we didn't make it through without each of us having thoughts of the past. But, we made it with plenty of silly memories that will be talked about for years to come! (Especially when I bring out the videos)
Now, I must sleep as BLACK FRIDAY starts in about 5 hours and I will knock people out for a good deal....actually this is one of my favorite days...I shop all by myself for hours and hours......PURE BLISS!
