My mind got to thinking about running. Now, I L.O.V.E running. My family always says I'm crazy and in high school if you would have said I was going to grow up to be a runner I would have laughed. Now... I did run a lot in high school, but for
I started to feel really sad as I looked down and saw our middle who still fits in "her side", but I know this is probably our last year as a double jogger family. Who would have guessed that the investment we made more than 5 years ago would be an investment to build strength in our mother-daughter relationship. I thought I was investing in a contraption that would allow me to exercise with children, but it was so much more than a stroller. It was a vehicle. A vehicle for our relationship. The Lord blessed me with time. Extra time with my girls, more conversations that I pray will have begun shaping them into the women they will grow up to be. I hope our runs not only instill that exercise is important, but so is the beauty that the world has to offer us. That our Lord has blessed us with another day to share with each other.
I'm sure next year we will start to think about selling or giving away our jogger. It makes me teary-eyed just thinking about that moment, but I know as it was a vehicle for our relationship I know another family will benefit from the love that this jogger has to offer.
From our Brown eyes to yours....
