5 Things I’m Deeply Grateful For: Includes YOU

LOTS going on in 'AtlasVille'... LOTS to be grateful for:

So we dive right into it!! 1 - My good friends had a baby, and I got to visit them and give the little champ some love. My younger daughter came along and was able to hold the newborn cutie. She was DELIGHTED and it was sweet to watch. This new boy is a gem and his parents couldn't be more deserving. They are perfect parent material, in many ways. Love them. 2 - Speaking of my younger daughter (she’s 11yo)... Last Sunday, she asks; “Dad can you wake me up in the morning when you get up for your run?” I say; “Yes… but I get up at 5:40 am - why do you want me to get you up?” She answers; “Because I want to run with you…. The 1 mile run test we did at school made me feel good and I want to keep doing it.” Next morning she’s up BEFORE me :-) ready to go… We do the 1.75 mile run away from the house and then the walk/jog back. IT WAS AWESOME IN SO MANY WAYS… In the dark, street lights, moon rising - then the sun, birds starting to sing… The timing of everything was divine. And SHE LOVED IT. And was ready to go the next morning!! She had soccer practice on evening #2 - and on morning #3 woke up and said “I’m going to skip today because I’m feeling a little tired - so will take off this morning.” Awesome that she is tuning in to her own ‘capacity’ and also willing to let me know what she needs and when. 3 - Speaking of daughters… My older angel, who is about to graduate high school, is wrapping up her final high-school lacrosse season (she may play club in college) and at the previous game we had “Senior night” - this is where the parents walk with their child across the field, and the announcer reads a great summary/bio piece about each player/student. Each senior also gets a "player poster" - and we had some photo time with those too, as you can see here:

A deep feeling of happiness flowed through me…. Extremely proud of my ‘Lex’, and the woman she is becoming. 4 - SCULPTAFIT is in Forward Motion!… Too much to share here, but in short - we are steadily moving forward with purpose and power… I have my core team (I’ll be introducing them soon) and we are working daily & weekly to create all that is necessary for Pre-Opening - and GRAND Opening… I am blessed to have these 2 inspiring and smart women at my side, working as a team to turn the vision of SCULPTAFIT into a life-changing reality… More to come… MUCH more :-)
