It wasn't until the other day when Little B came up to me and asked, "Mom, are you sick?" ...that it hit me---> I don't want my kids to remember me as being sick their whole lives. So I started asking myself--How DO I want my kids to remember me? Am I doing those things NOW that are creating lasting memories for them?
Matt and I went to a viewing today of a young father who was sick for some of his life- but he LIVED. He made the most of life and it was a BEAUTIFUL life and legacy that he left his family and friends to remember him by.
I want my kids to remember me as a FUN mom who spent time with them, who had obstacles in her life but overcame them with a positive attitude, a mom who LOVED them and encouraged them in all they did, a mom who loved to set goals and achieve them, a mom who loved to be outdoors- running- exploring--LIVING...I want my kids to know that I always strived to put God first, love and serve my family, and be the BEST I could be despite life's trials.
So I run because I can. I run for my kids to show them that momma might be sick sometimes, but she's going to live a happy life, a full life, a meaningful life.
