So, it's long and it's going to eat my hands up!!
I'm driving to Pittsburgh today to spend 4th of July weekend with my boyfriend -- so I'll do the workout when I get there.
Last night I celebrated my youngest daughter, Annie's, 21st birthday!! I am exactly 30 years older than her. I remember when I had her, I felt like such an old mom. But, I had two more children in my 30's, so it doesn't feel that way anymore!!
I loved being able to spend her birthday with her. When I have a day like yesterday, I don't question what I'm still doing here. Other days, I have so many questions, it's hard to think.
I'm reading H. W. Brands' book on Theodore Roosevelt. I'm only 20 pages in and I believe it to be my favorite of his, and he has a lot. It's huge too. It's like 700 pages. We will see how I feel as I go. Theodore is an interesting character to study. He began his life very ill. He struggled with asthma at an age when they didn't know what to. His parents probably didn't expect him to live very long.
Not only did he live long, he became a President. I can't wait to read how a sickly little boy grew up to be one of our most famous presidents.
BELIEVE YOU CAN AND YOU ARE HALFWAY THERE.
That was one of his famous quotes. Somewhere in that little child was a belief that not only could he survive his asthma, he could be president one day.
I'm not sure what I believe about myself anymore. My beliefs are pretty small in comparison. I believe I was given the gift of being able to dye yarn and make it into something beautiful. I believe I know how to homeschool my youngest son. And, I believe I try very hard each day to do what I can do to make those around me better because I'm here.
I don't believe I'm here to be President of the United States!!
But, since I am still here. I don't believe I'm finished.
