Day 36-40 //WRAPPED
I’ve listed things from both of these decades. Not in any chronological order…just as they came to me.
20 or Something
Dr Elaine Waller, women’s conference, received a direct prophesy from Dr. Waller. She looked directly at me, in the crowd of about 50 women, at the altar, and said to me “tenacity.” From this moment on, I began the journey of 1) defining that word, 2) that word defining me and 3) learning the truth about a life driven by it.

Run for My Life
My thirties were marked with running. Running to train. Running to pass a PT test. Running for my career. Running for military requirement. Running from dysfunction. Running out and from all things old. Running toward all things new.
For some running is fun. Easy. Exercise. It is a stress reliever. Bla, bla, bla…. not for me.
Running is a necessity. Not fun. A representative. I mostly resented it. Until I realized what it represented. Represents change, movement, elevation, continual change, flow, healing. It is a constant pressing. It is a reminder of the effort needed to progress and ward off stagnation- in life.
“But while I was running, I was feeling my strength. And I felt like I was coming up out of a hole. So I just kept on running. “ ~103 year old woman / runner

Atlantic City surprise birthday trip orchestrated by my husband/best friend.
Surprised with my sister from LA flown in. Dinner, karaoke. Trip to Atlantic City. “Scandal” gifts. Two night in AC, on the beach, with an ocean view. Surprise balloons, Champaign, and cupcake in the room. Stayed in the hotel from 1920’s that Marilyn Monroe loved. Spa/facial appt. Dolphin watching boat trip. Nightly dancing!
The biggest gift is how well my husband knows me and knows what makes my heart happy. I was able to just rest and take it all in.
