My Life in a Bag


I’m packing for Kona…it’s a crazy, frightening, uber exciting thought!!!!  Yep uber…had to use the word, it’s been awhile.  Not sure the exact definition but it means a lot.  I think…well in my vocabulary it does!!!

Tomorrow is Thursday, I will be leaving the following Thursday…are you kidding me?  I remember when my day count was at 160 something….it seemed the day would never come.  Well it’s coming….like a dang freight train it’s coming.

I have a feeling the next week I will consume more coffee that should be safe for one human….but hey who doesn’t like to visit over a cup of coffee!!!  I know I do.  I had two coffee dates today, I have 3 for tomorrow and who knows  what the next week will bring.  I’m trying to get all organized now so I can spend more time drinking coffee!!!

It hit me today as I walked out of the gym for the last time as the boss how much I will truly miss that place.  I had three clients cry this morning as they said goodbye to me.  Their words were so precious and truly penetrated my heart!!!!

I think that it’s good sometimes that we don’t comprehend the impact we may have on the lives around us.  I think it keeps us humble.  “The gym won’t be the same without you.”  Well of course it is.  I’m just a young woman who followed her dream, now has people standing beside her that will her shoes just perfectly.  The Lord has perfectly ordained them for such a time as this.  So of course it will be the same.  They might just not get nagged on their form as much….I’m sort of a perfectionist.  It was so hard to walk out those doors but so freeing for I know that I am being obedient in what has God has called me to.  The Lord asks for our sacrifice to cost us something.  It’s scary, it’s hard but I know that I know that I know it will be soooooooo worth it!!!!

So the bags are beginning to be packed and as my heart is being packed to head into a new season I can’t wait to see what the Lord has in store!!!

PS…for all of you that know that I will be disconnecting myself from the gym that does not mean in anyway that I do not want to hear from you, send cards, send care packages, send your love, it’s important to me!!!
