A few months ago I saw a show on TV where the mother asked her six children every night at dinner what was their high point in the day, and their low point. What I liked so much about that idea was no matter what...everyone always had something to say. It got everyone talking on a level that we sometimes miss out on in the busyness of our everyday lives. So, lately I have been asking Declan this question. I like to hear his answers...I like to know what got him motivated that day, excited, fulfilled....I like to know the low point too. It's telling of people. It's a way to learn more about each other. I honestly think this is something I may want to carry into my family someday.
For now...on days that I don't know what to blog about...I will blog on these two things. Low point and high point of the day.
Realizing some of the relationships in my life are just not where they should be. Realizing it's going to take work and lots and lots of prayer.
Working out alongside my sister...and meeting dumb little goals on new machines. I hated this new cardio machine we tried...but we gave ourselves a goal and we did it. I wanted to stop. We didn't. Leaving the gym feeling satisfied was my high point. Oh, oh, oh!! Getting a scale and realizing this morning that I am 10lbs lighter then I thought I was (or that I was in July).
