For Today...May 8, 2015
Outside my is 48° and sprinkling and the sun is hiding behind the clouds.  The lilacs are all but gone.
I am thinking...I really need to get dressed and ready for the day since I am not running this morning due to an injury.  
I am thankful...for uplifting quotes and articles that inspire me to be better.
I am wearing...leopard silky pajama bottoms and a purple Nike shirt that says, "As long as your sweating, you're still alive".
I am creating...a new blog post to publish this weekend sometime.
I am enjoy this rainy spring day and just soak in the wonderful storminess of it all.
I am wondering...if it is going to rain for my marathon next week.  I am praying so hard I won't have to run another 26.2 miles in a downpour.  That was hard and I am not sure I am up to it this time. 
I am reading...a cute new children's book my friend Diane gave me yesterday called, "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?"  by Carol McCloud.
I love children's books!  They are so inspiring!
I am hoping...hoping beyond hope that my Plantar Faciitis will hit the road before next Saturday (marathon day) or I'm not sure if I can finish!  I have been training for this race HARD for four months and now I have this to deal with!  It is so painful!
I am learning...that I have no control over most things in life and so I might as well just go with them.  Not putting up a fight makes it easier.
In my garden...things are starting to grow and others are being planted.  I am trying to get my porch pots planted too.
In my kitchen...I will be making some Amish Bread this weekend because my starter will be on day 10. 
A favorite quote for today...
A peek into one of my days...tomorrow I am going to run a 5K with my son Taylor (praying my Plantar allows me to!) and then the fam has to go clean up the yard at Dave's parents.  Then I am taking McKay shopping for his missionary suits, shoes, and a HUGE list of things for his mission.  Then Dave and I have a wedding reception to go to and then we are going out to dinner with some friends (Pres. Shepherd and his wife Katie) to hear a little more about Russia because Pres. Shepherd served his mission in Russia years ago.
One of my favorite things...spring rainstorms!  It could rain everyday in spring and I would be totally okay with it!
To play along go HERE.

I hope your plantar faciitis will hit the road before your marathon. You are ever busy. How to do you do it?

Oh me too Nancy! Me too! If not, I will be so bummed!
I think we are all so busy! I always read your blog and wonder how you do it all too. Maybe because we see an entire week or day at a glance and don't see that there is still down time. I used to wear "business" as a badge of honor, but not anymore. Sometimes I am the most productive when I am NOT busy.

Beautiful thoughts! I hope you are able to overcome the plantar issues - you have worked SO hard! Good luck!

I hope you are healed and can run!! I don't think I could handle rain everyday in the Spring... a few good rain storms would be ok... but I would take them over snow anyday!
