This last weekend we had an amazing time at Sue’s callbacks for her casting in the next play, James and the Giant Peach.
She can sing, she can dance!! I wish I had video of her dancing. She does it so well, but that was in a room sans audience.
My little Sue has spunk and talent. I could not be more proud of her. I am very sad to type that she did not get a named role as we had hoped, but she is already working very hard on her audition piece for the next production–A Christmas Carol.
She amazes me every day.
As I watched her this week I realized she has something I don’t have…talent. The things I have done, or do, are out of sheer stubbornness. Not because of talent. I am thinking talent might make things easier, but stubbornness works out pretty good too. I have pulled off a lot of things due to being very stubborn, and the grace of God. And Sunday, it is time for another one. It is time for my half marathon. That is a long 13.1 miles.
I’ve run the distance once to make sure I could. The first 9 miles were decently comfortable. And then came the rest. I truly ran them because I said I would. I had told people I was going to run 13.1 miles, not 9, so I just had to keep going. And this quote I had read on-line helped me keep pushing.
So here’s to Sunday and running with my legs, my feet, and my heart. Whatever gets me to 13.1!!
