Happy Friday! And happy birthday to my baby who turned 23 today! I texted him a happy birthday message early this morning ending with an "i love you" and he replied "I love you too". He's a man of few emotions so this was a grand moment for me. The tone of the day has been set!
I've had a few ups and downs this week but I kept pulling myself back on track thanks to blogs I have read this week and keeping some countdowns in my head.....
16 more days until the Chicago Hot Chocolate 5K
22 days until the Chicago Perfect 10K
245 days until summer
I also spent an entire morning one day reading all of the blogs I have written. I was pretty down and looking through other spark member blogs. Not sure how it occurred to me but I went back to my first blog and kept reading.
I was reminded of how far I have come in my attitudes and how I need to keep moving, I can't let a bad day get me down. One blog reminded me I have to "work the coat", another blog reminded me to "put one foot in front of the other", another blog reminded me the "my life is as good as an Abba song, it's as good as Dancing Queen".
So today I'm going to remember to dance....
"my grandpa he's 95
he keeps on dancin
he's still alive
my grandma she's 92
she loves to dance and sing some too
I don't know but I've been told
if you keep on dancin
you'll never get old"
Everybody get your dance on!
