See Beautiful. This inspiring blog will uplift. I am thrilled that I will be getting to meet this beautiful woman in Atlanta next week.
I've been reflecting on beauty. I'm not able to say - You look fabulous today. One of my fun colleagues/dear friends does this and then takes a picture of us. It is pretty fun and we laugh whether we are the one selected for the photo of the day :) or cheering on another one of our colleagues. What is really beautiful is the genuine love of this colleague. She is so beautiful.
I was reflecting this morning as a sweet nose was by the side of the bed at 5:30 am ready to get me up for running. She is so beautiful and resilient with her staples on her side. Six days until the staples come out and then a few days afterwards prior to putting on the harness. I'm hoping it will feel great and she'll feel the beauty once agian of being a guide dog! I haven't had Diet Coke since Cricket's surgery! At first, it was because I wasn't walking to the store during my break ... then it became long enough that I thought I'll just keep on with this break while I am preparing for the 1/2 marathon. So, when did you stop drinking diet coke? Well, my dog had surgery and so ... :).
I've been reflecting on the heaviness of what my clients carry. We just don't know what someone is carrying around in their heart. I have a 'blind runner' tag that identifies a part of who I am. Those hidden challenges of someone's heart are not as easy to identify. I feel lonely. I am hurting today. I am grieving. I feel scared. ... the list goes one.
