Yesterday I got the 5K a little early and was just walking around, taking in the weather. My wife was asleep with our 2 year old taking a nap. But our 5 year old was awake playing on her iPad. She took this video and then sent it to me. Unprompted and on her own.
I had to walk over to my truck to get some composure.
I am so thankful that I chose the path to health. I am so thankful that I will be around to walk my girls down the isle one day. But just as I have invested in me, I have also invested in them, putting off certain things that I would like to do so that I can be a part of their life. I mean, what good is doing all of these races if I am never spending time with them, right?
I am just so thankful to be healthy and to have an impact on my little girls.
