i carry your heart with me (i carry it in
my heart)

I shared those lines from the famous poem with Joshua tonight. I had written them years ago to my father on Father’s Day (back in college when I had no money for a gift so I made a gift). It’s overwhelming at times to look at my children. My cup runneth over.

The Summer of Creativity is dawning. I’ve put running and exercising on the shelf for lots of reasons. I’m not interested. I’m extremely busy. I don’t care. I’m tired. I’m not training for anything. I really should exercise, but other interests tug at my minuscule amount of spare time.

Cooking is really fun. Baking is even better. Watching the mama bird get food for her chirping babies in my back yard is so peaceful. Sipping tea and reading is luxurious. Watching Joshua’s baseball games is what spring is about for us. Listening to Elijah play the piano while doing dishes is life. Running? I think I am ready to play soccer again. Not in a league though. Maybe just kick the ball around in the yard with the kids. I need new cleats though.

I did run with Joshua at Chuy’s Hot to Trot. He’s 7, and this is his first 5K.
