been a while

I guess life has been busy - well, absent of the computer, actually.

Kind of been a rough few weeks - emotionally.

Finished up tour season - went well.

Worked for a week with a company that I love - no job now, though. I need work for the next nine weeks.

I have decided I AM going to Kenya. September 2nd is my target date. I need to raise $6000. I have a support letter ready to go. I think I will get that out this week. Since I don't have work. Need work. I'll do anything.

Feeling a little downhearted. I guess I'm going through another layer of grief.

Joined a Running Club adn that is DEFINITELY the highlight of my summer - I LOVE it. We meet twice a week and then a group of us meet a third time for the extra run. The goal is a 5K on July 27th. My goal is to run it in under 30 minutes. And for me, this will be a great accomplishment.

I've managed to gain 7 pounds while running. And I would love to think it's muscle, but my clothes are fitting tighter. And I'm not eating more because I "know I'm running."

Trying to remember that God is good and life could be SO MUCH WORSE. But, just feeling sad, anyway.


  1. need more details on the 'going to kenya' thing! i totally want to support you in this- in every way! are you moving, or just going for a while??? fill us in, por favor!!!

  2. You are so amazing! I love the way you just give and give and give—truly an inspiration!

  3. "Trying to remember that God is good and life could be SO MUCH WORSE. But, just feeling sad, anyway."

    I've had many of those days, believe me. But those days are kind of like a gift; it's when I'm at my weakest that He makes me stronger. (Sure hope that made sense.)

    Thinking of you, and wishing we could meet up again in Hawaii. :-D

  4. Oh sweet friend. I am so proud of you for running! I hope you start feeling better soon :)
