WILKERSON HERE: Mothers Day today. There are many days we celebrate and this one is very important. I watched Jenny yesterday as she was talking softly to Luci. I was amazed how this little girl that in my mind is still my little girl, was a full blown and great mother. So caring and gentle with Luci and so attune to her every whimper. Almost knowing how to communicate on a different level. I remember watching CJ as a mother do the same thing to our kids. The bond is so strong and meaningful. I know there are people who have not had this love and relationship that is so precious. I am sorry they missed that love and offer a prayer that they will find the comfort that many of us can return to if needed all the days of our mother’s life. My Mom is a strong women as well. She is still working much past the days many would even consider. There is much I love and respect about her and the work ethic is a powerful example. Think of the impressionable age of small children. They open their mouths and take in anything we give them in complete trust and their minds are the same. Mothers fill our heads with much of who we are and will become. From my Grand moms and my Mom who filled my head with the things of God, to CJ our families Mom and now to Jenny the new Mom, I offer my love and respect. They have and will pass on scripture and demonstrate the love of the Lord for all their days and many will benefit and be shown the Way through their tireless love. I love you all.
Training: Only one word for it, sore. Second word, over. Exercise won’t end but the intensity will ease. Got to give a lot of credit to my doctor, Kevin. Needed to do a quick race interview and then he met me to inject my foot so I could run without pain. Kevin understands as he is a runner and works in sports medicine. He did and it worked on my foot. I am wondering how to get a full body injection next time. People were very gracious and spoke kind words as we passed and we found many who had been to Haiti themselves. Will probably give it several day rest before going back out. Plan to move solely to the bike, swimming and weights to see if this foot can heal. All of us age and it is a bummer. Head age 30 and body age 60. That is a dangerous combination but most days I like it. If you are not exercising and doing things to hold your health for as long as possible, please do so. It will not only make all the difference in your life, but in the lives of those you love.
We're here to raise $100,000 for Haiti. Contribute to us and help provide clean water, medical care and food for the people of Haiti, still struggling more than a year after the earthquake. Join THREE Marks and pledge to support them as they conquer 13.1 miles each running the OneAmerica Mini Marathon.
