Today I got up for my Friday morning run
Got to the river trail…no Sean
Sent my text threatening death if he was still sleeping
His phone had died during the night…bummer
So that leaves me with the decision…run…no run
I pick option 3…walk
I’m so sore from wake boarding that walking sounded incredible. I headed out on the trail and actually had an amazing time in prayer and enjoying my surroundings.
Half way through I notice these two ladies emerge from the bushes on the side of the trail. They have 2 huge ziplock bags filled with blackberries. I started looking on the side of the trail and noticed millions of blackberries everywhere. I’ve run that trail 100 times and this is the first time I had seen the blackberries. I started thinking about my crazy life and the amazing things that God has all around me that I am flying by and missing everyday.
I’m grateful for the ones that stop to jump into bushes for blackberries. They taught me something this morning. So much of life can become background noise and nice scenery. Slow down…open your eyes…breath…open your ears…breath…pick some blueberries!
