I can hardly believe it is now March.
Somehow I believed that when the month of March arrived it would suddenly be spring time! At least that is the way it was in my dreams.
In reality, the temperatures tonight will dip down to 29 degrees. So, I suppose I have a ways to go as I wait for those warm gentle breezes I have been longing for.
Marathon Update: We had an enjoyable time in New Orleans this week end. At least it was for my husband and I, but then we were just spectators. My granddaughter and her boyfriend finished the half marathon and my daughter and son-in-law heroically finished the full 26.2 mile marathon.
There is good reason I use the term "heroically" finished the marathon for my daughter and SIL. They had to stop just shortly past mile 3 and perform CPR on an elderly racer who had passed out, was blue in the face, not breathing and did not have a pulse. They managed to revive her just before the ambulance arrived. This set them back a good 30 to 40 minutes.
How they managed to compose themselves after this serious event and continue on for another 23 miles and finish the race, is quite amazing.
I've been thinking a good bit the last few days about hero's. Who they are and exactly what makes one a hero. I took a good look around me and have come to the conclusion, that I'm surrounded by quite a few of them!
"True heroism is remarkably sober, and very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass others at whatever the cost, but the urge to SERVE others at whatever the cost." ~Arthur Ashe~
Blessings of peace everyone, and all that is good. Have a great Thursday! Please pray for our country and our leaders during these difficult days.
