Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day!!
Today Matt and I hiked for about 2 hours. It was a beautiful morning. It was a great way to start the day. This afternoon we all went out to lunch, Grandma's included, and then walked around the plaza in Sonoma. Both of my girls were with us, and Caleb called me on the phone to say hi. It was a nice day spent with special loved ones. My brother gave me a little book called, The little things. I will include quotes from that book often in my posts on my blog. I think you will enjoy them..

My foot and ankle are feeling so much better. I see light at the end of the tunnel. I can't tell you how relieved I am. I will continue with the swimming, though, as I think the crosstraining will do me good.

On Friday, a few friends and I are leaving for Arizona to run the double crossing of the Grand Canyon. This will be my second time doing the R2R2R. I am so excited and can hardly wait. I have a feeling that it is going to be HOT out there. Another hot, fun adventure!

Living with intention.
We each have only a limited amount of time here. We have to do more with it, pay attention , explore, be open to all of life. Because we have only one chance, we have to make life seem longer than it really is. viggo mortensen

I love you too, Caleb. Mothers Day was not the same without you there. I wish I could see you today. I will see you soon, though. I miss you!
