Guys, I’m exhausted. I haven’t done much naked writing lately. I was totally going to, but I watched a PG Movie with the family tonight instead. This post is going to be short and sweet or maybe just short, you get to decide. It’s a free country <Let’s hope it stays that way.

We watched the movie Miracles from Heaven. I loved it. I balled. It hit home for me as my oldest daughter has digestive health issues. She was in and out of the hospital this past spring and summer because of ulcerative colitis. As a mom, there is nothing worse than seeing your child suffer. I wish I could elaborate on how it gave my faith a good shake and how God saw me through, but I can’t right now.

I can barely keep my eyes open. We have an early soccer game in the morning. Plus I subbed for kindergarten today, then came home and cleaned out the gutters and swept a million leaves off the roof <Yeah I know, so BA. I didn’t get to finish because it started rainin’. Good ole Seattle weather.

After that, I took my daughter to a Fun Run. I had no idea what it was about until she said, Mom! I need you to take me to the high school. I want to run in the Fun Run!  What’s the Fun Run?  It’s a run at the high school. Okay. Were you supposed to register for this? Does it cost money? What’s it for? I don’t know Mom. We just need to go, like now! I want to run. The race starts in 15 minutes. Well then, we better go. We drove up there, and her group was the first to run. She got 3rd place! I loved hearing her say, Mom, I’m so proud of myself! Later, I laughed when she said, it wasn’t exactly fun.

I will leave you with a quote from the movie. It is by Albert Einstein. It turns out he may have known a thing or two about life.

There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

I like the second option, but it isn’t always easy to keep the faith, especially during times you can’t see God. I wish I could elaborate on that, but it’s way past my bedtime. Dang, this 31-day thing is going to be the death of me. That insecurity post is coming soon, as is the bravery one. I plan to do something out of my comfort zone this weekend and need prayer to be brave. It involves making a video. I can guarantee it won’t be via Facebook Live, at least I don’t think. But just in case, go like my Facebook page. I’d hate for you to miss out. #heavenhelpme
