Celebrating being Alive!
Today is my one year blog anniversary. I had high hopes when I started this blog, and on some levels I didn’t meet my expectations — but the fact that it’s still here and active after ONE year is a huge accomplishement. I tend to leave more things unfinished/inactive it seems. There have been quiet parts – but overall, it’s been ok! Thank you to those of you who read my blog! (and a special thanks to those who comment too! Merci!)
Today will be spent crafting away like crazy — trying to finish my children’s birthday gifts… The dolls are nearly completed – all they need is hair & clothing… If all goes well it should be a fun day 🙂
I’m also planning on going for a 6.5km+ run — I’ve been running since this summer and today was my 5k goal — but since I’ve surpassed that already I figured my goal for today should be something like 8k — but I’m not sure that’s going to happen. Either way, I’m going to TRY to go for a run and log as many km as my body will allow. Because my body CAN. That by itself, is amazing.
Today is the 12th anniversary of my car accident — a car accident that took so much from me… but at the same time gave me a constant reminder that the I am blessed to be alive. Oct. 20th is a day I choose to celebrate being ALIVE.
This photo is so important to me…. the four of us a little while after my accident — and a glimpse of what could have possibly been. That’s where it stops — I don’t think of what could have been, but lets just say that these photographs could be incredibly different. As I said, I celebrate being alive. This is a constant reminder, on my inpsiration board.
