I also got a sweet little number that I've been wanting for awhile. It just came in the mail today.
It is so sweet! I've read the manual and can't believe all the functions it has. It has "slap technology" so I can just touch the screen, and it'll split/lap. I'm pretty stoked!
But, I wanted to share my favorite part of Christmas vacation with you. It happened on Christmas morning, and I can't really take any credit for it. My mother-in-law, Kathy, decided that she wanted to do something as a family to help others this year. She works with the community a lot and has quite a few connections, so she hooked us up with Providence Ministries which is a place for men and women that are abused, addicted or just need help. They were planning a huge Christmas present giveaway for the city of Dalton, and they needed help. We got up on Christmas morning, and Trevor, Jenn's brother, and Wyntre, Trev's girlfriend, and I busted out a nice 6 mile run which was really awesome. Then, after showering and eating, we drove over to Providence Ministries. As we pulled into the parking lot, I about lost my composure because of the huge line of people that were outside in the rain waiting to go inside to have a Christmas. I was so choked up, and I wondered if I could make it through the whole thing, but we went inside and put name tags on. We walked into a really large room that was filled with tables surrounded by people eating a special Christmas meal. Then, we went into another room where all the families that had children were. They were seated in rows that faced three rows of tables piled high with presents. Here's what it looked like.
I haven't yet completed my 2012 goals/resolutions, but I do know that helping more people will be on that list. It was so rewarding and such a blessing. I am so blessed in so many areas, and I don't deserve it. It's nice to stop from our busy lives to just see how amazing everything is around us when others are struggling at life in so many ways.
May 2012 be the greatest year you have had yet. I look forward to meeting many of you bloggers at different races. Have fun and be safe at your New Year's parties wherever you are...
