Five Minute Fridays: Going The Distance

Inspired by prompt over at The Gypsy Mama's place, here is my five minutes of unedited, stream of consciousness, musings about going the distance:

literally speaking, we have gone a great distance today, on our first roadtrip in over seven months.  all six of us in the van, loaded down with suitcases and lacrosse sticks, enough junk food to sink a ship, and a cooler of bottled water.  as usual there was a lot of laughter and some fighting...interesting conversations...the last two chapters and epilogue of the book Hatchet by Gary Paulsen- read aloud by yours tooth cracked on a piece of ice and fell out...we talked of the upcoming Royal Wedding and Ben wondered how Princess Diana is going to get married if she is dead.  

Tom, my husband of nearly 14 yrs.
My Best Friend and rock- going
the distance for me, every single day
figuratively, I am encouraged that I have come a great distance in my life, seven months after being hospitalized for anxiety/panic attacks.  I am forever in the debt of many honorable and loving human beings who have gone this distance with me- my parents, my husband, my kids, and some incredible friends.

God is so gracious to give us family and friends to help us go the distance.

Seven months is a long trip providing God the opportunity to show off a little!
