It’s been two weeks since New York and I’m still reliving it and thinking about what’s next. It is weird because nothing seems to compare to the experience and everything I THINK about doing isn’t getting me excited enough to want to make it a priority.
In fact, the only thing I did take as a goal and a priority this weekend was spending as much time as I could with my kids. If you follow the fitness blogging world at all, you have probably seen some references to one of our own losing a young daughter. To say it’s been top of mind is an understatement. It’s been more than just something I think about, it’s become the reason I DID this weekend and it changed me.
Outside of the tears I cried for a girl I never knew and for a woman I’ve never met, I hugged my own more, I held them tighter than I ever and I practiced more patience than I have in a LONG time.
And so now, not only do I have condolences to still send (which sounds so impersonal) to this family, I have to figure out how to thank them for the perspective and the memories we created this weekend in their honor.
Death is never easy and to lose a child is beyond my comprehension so all I can say is that I’m sorry, I’m grieving with you, praying for you and these moments are dedicated to you…
