A Quick Update


I've been blog-slacking for the past month, but I wanted to give you all an update on things.

First, the long-awaited Color Run (5K) is this weekend! Because I was/am having some pain in my right hip, I was re-considering participating. I started to think that I should wait for a later Color Run, when I have had more time to recover. I had even told my husband, "Let's just wait," and he agreed.

But then I told my 12-year-old (who is also signed up) and he was devastated. I didn't think he would care, so his disappointment took me by surprise. It also made me sad. I didn't want to let him down. And honestly, I didn't want to let myself down either.

Let's face it -- my "recovery" is actually a way of life. I don't think that a year from now that I'll be any better off than I am today. In fact, my right hip could get worse. So I'm sticking to the plan and going for it. I'm sure I'll have to walk almost the whole thing, but it will still be a great accomplishment if I can finish, and I love that I get to share that experience with my husband and oldest son.

I managed to do some dancing at a wedding this past weekend and I even wore a pair of heels (not too high) for the first time in about a year. I'm paying for it a bit now because I am sore, but we had such a great time so it was worth it!

We also went to a local Fall Festival this month and walked around, which is something I couldn't have dreamed of doing a few months ago. Below is a video of a band that was playing there -- a family band from Virginia, The Hunts. They were awesome! I ordered their new CD and can't wait for it to get here!

I ask for all of your prayers and continued support as I prepare for the Color Run this weekend. I appreciate all of you so much!

I have a ton of new things to report, but I'm at this weird place now in my blog/story, where I can't decide if I want to "get personal" or "stay somewhat private."

There's a lot more to my story and I'm working up the courage to share some of it. I think that eventually I will, but that's why I've been a little "quiet" on my blog lately.

I can't wait to update you all on the Color Run and to share some more of my journey with you!

"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong." -- 2 Corinthians 12:9-10


  1. Reading this makes me inspired. Although you aren't perfect, you did 'normal' things, active things. THAT deserves a congratulations!!!

  2. Thanks so much!!!! You will appreciate this - our team name for the Color Run is "hip hip hooray" :) Doing normal things is such a blessing!

  3. You're amazing! The Color Run sounds like so much fun...wish I liked running!! Hehe. Good luck this weekend :)

    1. Thanks, Danielle! I don't like to run either, but I thought this would be fun to try :)
