“Boston Strong!” What an amazing comeback! I wonder what was going through the minds of those who participated and those who cheered. Whatever it was, there was definitely a positive attitude that carried those runners. Thanks to Mashable for these photos!
“With the second-largest number of entrants in its history, the 2014 Boston Marathon was more than just a race — it was a comeback.
One year after the bombings, runners and spectators alike exemplified “Boston Strong,” a motto the city unofficially adopted in 2013. Survivors completed the race and joined each other at the finish line. An American man won for the first time since 1983, and there was at least one wedding proposal.”

Yay Boston! Yay American Spirit! Yay Runners!

These are my stories—my life. I try to write honestly, raw, and from my heart. I try to tell all the parts—the good, the hard, the tough, the hopeful, and the emotional.
But most importantly, I am here to be found by you. I am open-hearted, and I won’t hide.
When I share my story, my words, and my experiences you may see yourself in them.
I make myself vulnerable, hoping that you might learn and heal.
We all need healing. The world can be cruel. Sometimes life can break us.
But there is joy and hope to be found. I pray that I may lead you to the One who can give them to us.
So, who am I?
*I’m an educator at heart–it’s in my blood.
*I’m a highly emotional person–I identify that as “passion”.
*I’m a late-life mom to two amazing and beautiful (adopted) children who have physical, mental, and psychological differences from “typical” children.
*I’ve lived a lot. I’ve learned a lot. And I’ve healed a lot.
I hope you will join me in my quest to live for God, to live fully, and to spread truth!
