Thatís great news about your mom, Aly!
RAL, about your post from yesterday, I can so relate to those late night online purchases when I was drinking. A couple times, Amazon packages showed up at my door and I had no recollection of the order. One time I also booked a ski vacation. Crazy!
Grateful for the beautiful weather
Grateful to plan an early long run tomorrow morning
Grateful my son brought home an amazing report card
Grateful that everything passes, and everything changes, and we keep learning and growing
