In this life we can not always do great things. But we can do small things with great love.." :) Mother Teresa

Prayer Quote

“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”
― C. S. Lewis


I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

The Run the Rock Day 2010

Today we went to Fair Park in Dallas to participate in the Run the Rock fun race that precedes the Run the Rock Marathon for tomorrow, all benefitting TX Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.  We are thankful to each and every person who ran today, and for the monies raised to benefit the hospital. Without this hospital, we could not do what we do!  And that is the truth!
The girls ran in the 1 mile fun race.  They ALL finished!   Anna and Sarah finished in a snap so I couldn't film their finish line crossing because I was with Erika.  I LOVED filming hers.  I always get these tears..... they seem to just come and you'd think I'd be used to them...... I'm not.  I am so proud of all of them!

Here are a few high lights!

On Our Way!

Anna is definitely not a morning person! She was still asleep when we left. :)

We passed this truck full of chickens on the Freeway. Somehow, our day was surely going to turn out
better than theirs. :(

 And they're off!

And here is one of my favorite parts of the day, along with meeting Katie, R, Will , Ellie, Lovie and Cookie from Baseballs Butterflies and Blessings Blog. :)
