Why am I doing this?

Monday, January 28, 2013

So today I went to the gym and did my thing. When I started my truck to leave, "Let it be" by the Beatles came on. I mean like the song had just started. That was the song they played at my mom's memorial service. So I sat there and listened and just cried. I knew that my mom was with me.
I am doing this for myself, but also for my mom. I remember her seeing people jogging and her saying "I wish I could do that.". About six months ago I saw someone jogging and thought, "I want to do that.". It made me remember what my mom had said so many times. That was when I decided that that was my goal. Not to lose weight, but to run.

    emoticon emoticon you will achieve your goal for you (and your mom) She will always be with you!! It is okay to cry (cleans out the eyes) my mom is now in a rest home and doesn't know who I am and I cry every day. Let's try and remember all the good times and turn our tears into smiles. I'm a mom myself and I want my daughter to be happy, bet our moms do too! emoticon here's to your run! emoticon emoticon emoticon Judy
