Yup, today I start a new journey around the sun (as one friend eloquently put it on my Facebook page).
I'm not much for presents (I'm a hard-to-shop-for youngest child...), but 7-year-old Phoebe gave me something great right before I set off this a.m. on a later-than-usual 10-mile run. She asked me, "Mom, can I go running with you when I'm 15?" I replied, "Oh, we don't need to wait that long to run together!" With great excitement, Phoebe said, "Like when I'm 11 or 12?" I told her I thought we could even run together when she's 10.
A huge grin broke out on her face. It was exactly what this mother needed to kick off a great birthday.
