7 Minutes in Heaven........

I just had the best 7 minutes in heaven...

I
am
serious...

and I'm NOT in middle school anymore!!!


As of late, I have been patient...
behaved...
optimistic...
positive...
calm...
cooperative...
diligent...
and at times according to my husband...
a royal pain in the ass!

but... it caught me totally off guard.............

He walked over to me and said.."I'm thinking that I just want to see what it feels like for you to run...
if your up to it...
just for a few minutes let's see what happens...
if your in pain or uncomfortable...
then STOP! 
But, I'm thinking it's time...
it's been 6 months since your surgery, let's just see what happens...
What do you think?"
My heart raced a bit and I wasn't mentally prepared of course.  


I have been waiting for this day for about  8 months or so...... 
but I didn't expect it today...
it came out of nowhere...
I just said OK
took off my sweatshirt
put my hat on
and went for it...


I ran for 7 minutes...

I'm not quites sure why I stopped at that point?????????? 
 I just did for some reason...
I think I was nervous to keep going...
afraid I was suppose to hurt..
scared I would make things worse. 
wondering if I would lose my breath...

I ran for 7 minutes...

he was watching...
he said I looked like I had been running all along...
like I had never stopped... 
 my cadence was perfect...
my gait not awkward...
my form relaxed...
my footing in rhythm with the other...

I ran 7 minutes...and I was in heaven

the best 7 minutes I've had in a long time...


And when I came home and told my husband about it,
this was the look I got...
Honey...did you just say what I think you said???

So...what something has moved your heaven and earth lately???

Quotes include, "Mrs. Miller, you're a really nice teacher. Like the nicest nice." or "Mrs. Miller, thank you for helping me learn. Thank you for teaching me." Breaks. my. heart!
