Marathon Days

Today was a marathon day.

It began early in the morning.... earlier than I anticipated, actually, with my son asking for the code to allow him to watch a show on TV. When I asked "what time is it?" and he replied "3:30", I sent him to bed, and dosed a bit myself....

Then, the typical Service Thursday - Mom's in Touch meeting, and time at the school. There was the mental challenge. It's standardized testing week, so the kindergarteners, first graders and second graders have been combined into groups for special projects. They've been interesting, and I have perfected my redirection skills.

The afternoon was the physical marathon: a dog walk, an hour of mowing the grass and then the completion of my 4.5 mile walk before karate/MMA.

It was a good reminder for me -in either situation, mental or physical, I can lean on Philippians 4:13.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me"
