Yesterday I got the day off work (which was exceedingly sweet at a time when both of my kids are here at my house). I slept in alllll the way to 7:30 (I can remember when that wouldn't have counted as "sleeping in" to me!) and then got up to get my prayer time in before others would be up.
I was very surprised and pleased to discover that I was still able to get my butt up and out the door for a run afterward. Even though I had slept in. Even though it was already fully daylight. Even though I was comfy and warm inside, and the frozen wind was blasting away outside. Even though I was super excited about cooking breakfast for the kids. Even though I had PLENTY of excuses to talk myself out of going outside for a run. I still ran! Woo hoo! I love that evidence that this habit has taken real root in me.
Though I've had a houseful of people and correspondingly not a ton of writing time, I AM dreaming some dreams for 2012. That blog will come soon (though I think first I have one more 2011 blog to post over at clumsy beautiful life).
Today, it's back to work time. Let's charge into 2012 with trust and joy, eh?
