New beginnings

Okay. New Beginnings.

I had a blog three years ago, but I didn't keep up with it. I've found myself really enjoying reading the blogs of my friends and family over the last few months. It's like a unique way to stay in touch with each others lives. So here is mine.

I'm starting this blog and also a challenge that I read about on my cousin's blog. I am joining the 3,000 in 35 ab challenge! I've been focusing on increasing my physical activity with a 8 weeks to 5K challenge for the past few weeks, and I think I'd like to try a team challenge for support!

So we are off and running! I'm excited to share some other new beginnings as they come along. but for now I'll end with my favorite quote:

Yes, we still live in an imperfect, suffering, hurting world. No amount of love will ever do away with the pains of rebuke, frustration, ingratitude, misunderstanding,malice or plain stupidity. But the difference is that, with love in our hearts, these miseries will no longer be overwhelming; we will have learned to swim in the moving, salty, treacherous but exalting sea of mankind, to love it in spite of everything. And if we ever do come to perfect wisdom, we will love it because of everything, for we will be able to see the striving behind the sin, frustrated hope behind despair, failures of love behind acts of malice, and infinite mercy covering them all. -Jose de Vinck
