First things first, if you could take a moment and pray for a friend who is having a tumor removed from her brain, I would appreciate it very much. She is a wife and mother now but at 18 went through a horrible life changing, memory erasing accident when she was hit by a semi-truck...it impaired her memory and motor skills for a long while...she recovered, got some memories back, grew up, got married, and had babies. A month or so ago she was driving and had a seizure and was in a car accident, at the ER they found a large brain tumor. She is in surgery now, it will take most of the day according to the surgeon. I know this is out of the ordinary, but I would just ask, if you pray, please take a moment to do so! God is The Great Physician and He can and does work miracles.
Okay...next, but SERIOUSLY down on the scale of importance is...I got my new car yesterday! Here is what she looks like...(Yes I said she) Her name is Poison Ivy!
I have been training for a 5k in April...my first race since the pelvic stress fracture...and we are in week 6 out of 9 and doing well. The running is getting progressively longer and the walking times much shorter, I don't think I will make or beat my PR but I'm going to try with all I have in me. The compression sleeves seem to be doing a great job..my new shoes are awesome and feel as if they are already broke in...I think things are looking up. Although I have been having some nagging IT band issues..nothing big just irritating. I am hoping nothing more comes of it!
Have a great day and thanks in advance for your prayers. Blessings and hugs!
Godspeed...this comes from the Middle English expression "God spede (you)", a wish for success and fortune for one setting out on an enterprise, voyage, adventure, or travels. It may also mean good luck.
