Yay Friday is here! I don't know how your day started off, but mine was a bit of a challenge. My sweet son was not one for getting up this morning. Today was a Preschool day and even though I set out his clothes and packed his bag the evening before, we still had a bit to do before we could get out the door this morning. It was the normal things such as getting dressed, eating breakfast, and brushing your teeth. Easy things, so you would think, but not to my son. He could have won an award for his dramatic performance and his pace, well....a snail could have done it faster. Needless to say we left ten minutes late and arrived to Preschool just in time. Then, the poor guy wasn't feeling it. He didn't want to go into class today. Secretly I didn't mind the extra hugs, but of course seeing him upset made me upset. I spent a few minutes with him in his classroom, and soon, thanks to Miss. Abbey, he took interest in magnets and was not worried about staying at all.
I walked back to my car feeling a bit unsettled only to find that I would be walking alone today. Unfortunately my walking partners could not make it. I almost didn't go, not because I didn't want to, but because I felt a little uncomfortable walking alone. It's silly, but sometimes I have a hard time doing things by myself. I am so used to having company, even if it is a 3 year old, that doing things alone feels odd sometimes. I almost don't know what to do with myself. Weird, huh?
There is a quiet little neighborhood behind the church where he goes to school. I am familiar with it and know that if I keep to the side of the road and follow it through all of the loops and cul-de-sacs, when I make it back to my car I will have walked 2.2 miles. So I put on a dab of calming essential oils, took a deep breath, and off I went. It was lovely too. It had rained earlier this morning so the ground was wet. The leaves are starting to turn colors and the black top was sprinkled with fallen leaves. No one but me was on the road. I heard nothing but the sound of nature and my own thoughts. It was quite peaceful. I was calm and centered when I returned to pick up my son. As soon as he saw me he ran to the door, eagerly holding out his artwork for me to see. He was so happy and so was I, much different than how we started the day!
To date I have walked 44.96 miles. This is so close to 50 miles, I can taste it! How are you doing on your walking? Where are you at?
I'd love to hear from you!
Best wishes on a wonderful weekend,
