It's been how long?!

I don't know what made me think about this blog today, but I was astonished to discover how long it had been since I posted anything.  I suspect with the advent of Facebook, texting, and Twitter etc., the blog method of communication has taken a back seat.  But as I flipped back through my pages, I realized I missed putting my thoughts on (figurative) paper.

So today -- I decided to make note of what has been on my mind.  I've been running again and getting better (stronger and faster and with more endurance) all the time, and I love that.  Especially since I am getting older all the time, too.  I am not as fast as I used to be, I don't go as far as I used to go - but I can still go.  And I want to keep on doing until I absolutely can't.  Wasn't it Sister Hinckley who made a comment about not wanting to die of boredom on the shelf, but rather be used up in her old(er) age?  That's how I feel.

And I have been happily proving right the quote I read about how the task itself really hasn't changed -- but my ability to achieve and master the task have changed as I just keep doing it and don't give up.

The weather here is lovely, I am happy, and I am grateful.  I hope you can say the same, because that's what I wish for all.
