To many my life is very routine. I typically run the same distances everyday at about the same times. The family and I go about the day-to-day routine kind of like a dance with each partner knowing where the next step will be to keep things running smoothly.
It's along the way within that routine that amazing things can be found.
Perhaps to some those things seem trival or unimportant but to me they punctuate my days.
Day # 114 ~ 6.5 / 53:04
The past few runs have been punctuated by wildlife.
Most recently butterflies.
Black swallowtail butterfly
There is a section of my 6.5 mile loop that has been filled with butterflies.
Several different kinds. I don't know if they are ending their lifecycle but they seem to simply stay in the stretch of road and flutter in the adjacent fields.
Happy Big Second Birthday to my Little Bug Man!
Seeing them. Holding them.
They remind me; as we celebrate LBM's second birthday, that life is precious and fragile.
I want to enjoy and breath in every moment that I am given.
My hope is that I am showing this philosophy to my children and in doing so, teaching them to take nothing for granted and appreciate everything.
I will leave you with a final thought
because I know you all REALLY just want the winner's names
What are you allowing to punctuate your days?
Would those around you say the same?
A few more bits of punctuation!
