Good Afternoon, God!
Actually, I have no idea WHAT time it is — well, OK 2:00 p.m. in Denver which is where we are for a few more minutes.
THANK YOU! Before Kit runs a marathon it becomes really clear to me that I just want him ALIVE and WELL at the end. So, to have him finish 2nd in his age group was ICING on the CAKE!
I think Boston must be the oldest marathon in the US. Maybe the world? It’s full of prestige and mystic. And, when Kit started running it never occurred to us that ONE DAY he might qualify to run in the Boston Marathon — certainly not PLACE.
Marathons really do require GRIT! Grit is one of those lovely things to HAVE in the abstract — but, sad to say, God, grit is uncomfortable in real life. And those of us who LIKE comfort probably aren’t going to acquire grit. Ah well. I didn’t REALLY want it.
I’m now here in Tucson — talking about my new iPad 2 with Mark — happily waiting for lessons from him! Meanwhile, Kit is FINALLY online. How good it is to be with FAMILY — only missing Suz — to CELEBRATE TOGETHER. I have SO MANY THINGS / PEOPLE to be THANKFUL FOR! I’m full and overflowing with gratitude, God!
