This blog is about juggling a busy career, marriage, a love of running, a passion for water, and a desire to be more fit and healthy. It is about everyday and how we balance the expected in life with the unexpected and keep on "RUNin'". I am not that extraordinary or facing anything you aren't; just taking care of an aging parent and my 6 cats. Learning to roll with it and hang on for the ride, hopefully with a little humor and a dash of sarcasm!

Whether you celebrate Christmas in the traditional way, or Christmas isn't really your thing. It is a day where everything slows down, and given recent events, it is an opportunity to show those we love how much we love them. It is not by what you gifts you bought. The best gift any of us have to give is time and attention. Today is a day to hold those you love a little closer a little longer and to listen more intently. I have some goals for 2013 to help me to do this more and align more with my priorities, but today is not the day for that. It can wait. Today is a day to tell those you love how they have influenced your life and how different things would be if they weren't there. Instead of looking at the mounds of gifts, look in the faces of the givers, for no matter how you feel about Christmas that is the real gift. Merry Christmas everyone!!
