Sometimes things are so random, it makes you wonder if there is any sense in the world at all. And sometimes things fall into place perfectly and just come full circle. I love it when that happens, don’t you?

Like this tweet from last week:
Aw, thank you so much. To my mind you ARE a goddess.

I had just posted the review, only to listen to a podcast episode on Marathon Training Academy, that interviewed her. They related the book to running and training for a race! It was perfect. Honestly, if you are a runner, go listen to the podcast – they don’t number them, which is annoying, but the date was Feb. 1st and they have it on the top of their website now. Go. And then buy the book if you haven’t already! Super interesting.
Then, there’s today. I never watched football in my life, until I started dating my husband and I actually cared to learn the rules. I wanted to show him that I knew a little, so I asked my mom- my mom- to teach me the rules. Like what a “down” was. Seriously. I was not a fan. Full circle to today, married to this football-officiating husband, watching more football than I could ever have imagined…and to think, all I knew of football, I learned from my mother! That is both amazing and hilarious to us both (my mom and I, I mean!) My Patriots are playing tonight, and I love this football day…not just for the commercials or food, but for the game. Full circle.Wrapping this up, my week was good:
- Knock wood, my kids are healthy, we are healthy,
- We are cooking and cleaning our house for the week ahead
- I finished 24 Days of my Advocare Challenge and moved onto days 25-52…I feel awesome and full of renewed energy for running and exercising some more. I have been doing a ton of quickie online videos, include these super fun ones that I know you would love- music is fun and they are super short and sweet!
- I am working, sort of and figuring out my next move work-wise, so this should be a fun week!
And finally…Full circle doesn’t always win out- we had two deaths this week. Two youngish- like 45 years old people. That is not sense-making. There is no full-circle for me here. I can’t make heads or tails of why they are gone, as being good people, than why horrible, disgusting people like that Michigan doctor-of-nothing-gymnast-molester lives on and probably will…what sense is that? I don’t get it.
I have to have faith that the balance of life wins out. With the wins, there are losses. I have to say, “thank you” for the gifts like being called a “goddess” because you never know when the balance will come back and bite me in the… Well, let’s just say, I’ll say “thank you.” And leave it at that.
I will probably grow a long black hair in the middle of my forehead now. Crap.
In case you missed what was on H.A.G. this week, here’s a recap:
