Today I Ran

today i ran the same 3 miles
today i ran vigilant for bears
today i ran grateful i could
today i ran under the Montana sun
today i ran downhill then up
today i ran and cared not about pace
today i ran past blooming wildflowers
today i ran pushing precious cargo
today i ran honoring each step
today i ran letting go of garbage
today i ran well
today i ran

Thank You

Dear Hunter,

Thank you for the giggles
Thank you for the kisses
Thank you for the squeals
Thank you for the snuggles
Thank you for the peek-a-boos
Thank you for the wobbly walk
Thank you for the leg-hugging
Thank you for the ‘mama-mama’ in the middle of the night
Thank you for the tears
Thank you for the naps
Thank you for the bluest eyes filled with laughter
Thank you for the grumpiness
Thank you for the diapers
Thank you for the chubby, dimpled thighs
Thank you for the love.
Love,
Mom

Don’t Be Happy

Huh? What? Don’t be happy? No. “Happy” is blase-generic. And cliche.

My Dear Son,

Savor moments when all is right in your world.  Be watchful for those times when peace enters your heart. Appreciate nature’s canvas… a sunset, a glacier, a rainbow. Be inspired to do well in all things you set out to try. Be proud of your accomplishments, especially if you’ve done something that has helped another human soul. Feel grateful when kindness and blessings come your way, especially when they are least expected or most needed.

These are the emotions I wish for you, son. They will contribute to a long and healthy and fulfilling life.

Love,
Mom
