Mother's Day Run...

We ran the Mother's Day Run today. All these memories brought to the forefront with the run. 

It was a lot of fun. I love being a mom. I love that I have a son who is just so full of energy and never stops being curious about everything. I love that my husband is supportive of me and loves me for me. I am blown away by the support and pledges we received from some many different people.

It was one of the best runs I ever had. Jeremy and Sebastian were signed up for the 5km and I was signed up for the 10km. I knew I'd be on my own for the run, but I was okay with that. Jeremy signed it up that way. He's training to do shorter stuff and I've been doing longer stuff. I brought my ipod with me, filled with songs that I listen to that remind me of Sebastian's hospital days and songs that are full of hope about life for a child. Needless to say, it made for an emotional run, but only in the best of ways. It really drives home what a difference this event makes for the lives of NICU kids. I would never be able to buy the equipment this unit needs on my own, but with the power of many, all the donations we raised will go to make some big purchases. It's fun being part of that!!

Oh well, I'm still grateful we had the support we did. Thank you everyone who donated!!

Well done on your 10K and on completing your story on this blog. It's been so interesting and amazing when I see photos of your little boy looking so happy and strong. All the best!
