So, if you remember, back in December I started training to run the Gate River Run with my mom. The race was yesterday. Unfortunately, I was really not feeling well. My body aches had gotten worse and everytime I stood up, I felt really weak. So I was not able to run in the race. I can't tell you how disappointed I was! I have been working so hard and I knew it would be a great accomplishment for me to do it. But I couldn't help it. I watched the race on the news, looking for my mom. I didn't see her, but I spoke with her after the race. She was able to run the whole 9.3 miles!! I am so proud of her! That's the farthest she's ever run without stopping. I am extremely disappointed I couldn't at least be there to cheer her on or give her a big hug, but next year, barring any sickness, I will be there next to her!
Laura Anne: "Dear God, thank you for this day. Please help Mommy feel much better. Thank you for Caleb. Please help Mommy get better. In Jesus' name, Amen."
The other majorly disappointing thing about the rotten timing of this sickness was that I missed my sister-in-law's baby shower. I'm really sad, but I hope she had a great time. Alana, I have a really cool gift for Anna that I can't wait to give to you!!
