When Mommy Gets Sick

When we’re parents, illness is often the unexpected curveball that derails us in many ways. While we plan for the moments when our kids may get short term illnesses (and dread the possibility that our kids will get long term illnesses that test our emotional and spiritual resolve), we aren’t supposed to be the ones to get sick. We’re supposed to be the strong ones changing linens and cleaning up bathrooms and checking temperatures while still keeping the rest of the family functioning.

Putting On My Running Shoes

I guess I should have listened to my biology teacher all those years ago. I’m waiting for the day when I feel good while running, but I look forward to my running days way more than I thought I would. Right now the worst part about running is my legs are usually begging me to stop but I’m hoping that will get better sooner.
