"...makes a dragon wanna retire, man."
Our very own Lily completed her first timed (1 mile) race a few weeks ago, and to say she killed it would be the understatement of the year! I ran along side her and it was all I could do to hold back those proud mama tears. She ran with determination and confidence for the entire race. Not once did she ask to stop or slow down...if anything I was putting the breaks on her!
Matt and I did not put any pressure on her to do the race, it was all her. But obviously it isn't all her, she wants to run because we do...and actually if you ask her she will tell you it is because I do. She is five, and she wants to be just like me. Sort of a scary mommy moment! Not a day goes by that I don't pray that I do right by these kiddos of mine, because they are taking it ALL in. It is in that spirit that we are raising money for the kids at St Jude. The best way to ensure that the kids have generous hearts is to show them mine.
This weekend we spent a few hours making thank you cards together for our generous donors. To say that I am proud to be her mom...now that is the real understatement of the year.
