It’s fun to run. Right now, I’d love to run far away to somewhere nice – but I can’t always run when I want to. I have to stick some things out and wait – and that’s okay. Really. It is okay to have to wait, but not too long.

Only a few more days till Thanksgiving. You’ll run home to see family and friends. I’ll run home to two loving families and two turkeys and well, pretty much two of everything. It’s wonderful having a big crowd of people that care about you and don’t just want something. They give. I come from a family of givers and that’s something to be thankful for.

I can bet that you’re thankful for your family too, but sometimes, you run from them. You run away. You get frustrated and take off. We all do it and it’s only natural. One can’t expect for everything to be peachy keen. One can’t be expected to keep waiting.

But when the you-know-what hits the fan, then it’s time to run. Run as fast as you can to the people who know and love you. Run faster and harder than you ever have before. It’ll pay off. You’ll run and feel thankful and look at life a whole lot differently than before you took that first step in the right direction.

Happy Thanksgiving :)

  1. Mandy, I enjoyed that post…it reminded me of Thanksgivings past both in NYC and here in NE. Pennsylvania. You are right, family can be frustrating, but ultimately they are the core of our lives! Have a great holiday (my favorite one!) Preston
