Monday: Honor the memory - MLK Jr.

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.
-Martin Luther King Jr.

I went, I went, I went. Yay me! The instructor was very nice and helpful. Unfortunately, the YMCA is canceling this class as well (Am I a curse?) but, I did meet a very nice lady who recommended a yoga class on Tuesday nights. So maybe I will try it out after my Tuesday run.

In between my tears, I laughed at your comment and it did bring a slight smile to my face! And yes a good run and a great dog do wonders, at least for me!!! My dog has been my life saver the past few months-probably why she has a rocking blog!! HA HA! Didn't stop me from opening a bottle of wine after I came back from taking pictures at sunset-it was such a beautiful one tonight!!!!

Sorry to hear the YMCA is cancelling your spin class-yoga might be a great compliment to your running-I'm finding that with pilates!!! Worth a try!

Thanks for such kind and truthful words!! You are a rockstar!!

You had a cat named Winston-wow...kinda cool isn't it? You see we were meant to stubble upon each other!

I will do anything for my animals! Much to the horror of alot of people-but they are my babies! And there is nothing better than coming home to an alive house! And yes this is why I have plastic!!! VISA loves the WGA strike! HA! Did you try the Yoga class?

I got a meager 2.2 mile run in today-no energy today! So much shite happening in my life and in my families....but I'm going to try to get another shorty in tonight-as long as the rain isn't coming down too hard!

Hope you had a great day Tuesday!
