“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31.

Touch and Go

First off, I want to thank every one who has entered the giveaway already!! I am in awe at the overwhelming response!  If you haven't entered the iFitness & GU giveaway yet, there is still time!  You can enter until Wednesday 3/31.

Update on mileage
My goal for this month was 100 miles.  Today (before my run) I have 79.7 for the month.  I'm not going to meet my goal..:(  Time has not been on my side lately and I missed two runs last week.  Today I will get in 6 and tomorrow 5. It should bring my monthly total to 90.7.....soooooo close!!!
I just can not squeeze in anymore miles....

This week my "daycare" situation fell through, so I have been taking off to check out other daycare centers and interview people to keep the boys at my home.....if any of you have ever been in this situation then you know, it is not easy nor is it an enjoyable situation to be in.  Thankfully, I have an employer who also happens to be my Pastor(I work at my church) who is very understanding and I don't get penalized for missing work. 
Child care is outrageously expensive! 

Blessing #1, I found someone that the boys like, to stay with the boys after school.

Blessing #2 I was planning on leaving work early again today to check out a couple more places for Littlest Prince.  When I got to work this morning, Pastor told me he wanted me to start taking off everyday at 2:30pm so that I could pick my boys up from school and be with them and it would not affect my pay......WHAT!?  Praise God!!!
If I wasn't emotionally retarded I would have cried.

Blessing #3: Little Prince and Middle Prince were accepted into a day camp program for the summer!  They super excited!

Blessing #4: Ok, so it hasn't happened yet, but I am expecting this blessing.  I'm going today to look at a child care center for Littlest prince.  He has never been in public child care, the place I'm looking at usually has a 3 month wait....I need it by next Monday.  So I am believing he gets in!

What are you thankful for today?  
How have you been blessed?

If you're new to my blog, welcome! If you're not new, thanks for stopping by!  I love reading your comments and feedback!

Wow--so glad things are falling into place for you; I hope the final one does too. Today I am thankful for time--time to attend to laundry, work, my kids, etc.

Good job on the mileage, sometimes things don't go according to plan but you got close so just try again next month.

That's awesome that your daycare problems are looking better, I'll keep my fingers crossed that little prince gets into the daycare you like. :)

Hi April! So glad to have found your blog. Seems like we have lots in common! :)

That's awesome about your job and getting off early - child care is a total nightmare, it's been a long time since I've had to deal with that but I remember camping out the night before to get my twins in a preschool when registration opened the following day! I'm glad it's working out for you. What am I thankful for today? Though my running/training for Boston has totally been aweful, I'm thankful I'm still able to run it, however slow it will be! :)

I am blessed because my family will move into a new home the end of this month and I will run Marathon #2 just days after.

Totally enjoying your blog, April! I love recognizing the blessings in my life. I feel blessed to have good health, a body that can work-out, and a home.
