God sure knows how to put you on your knees...Like right in front of a hotel toilet! If you didn't read yesterdays post, SICK..than you may as well know I have the stomach FLU!
We got on the road later than we planned. Andy let me try and sleep. As we drove through New York by belly was still turning but I was able to keep everything down and in!
All the carb loading the past week is gone. Especially considering today my diet consisted of water and minimal bland foods.
We arrived in Boston where the anxiety went into full swing for Andy. We were trying to get to the Expo and the traffic was insane. These people are just going on like this was their normal. Andy was chewing the inside of his lip, clicking his teeth and desperately trying not to go postal.
After an hour of trying to find parking in the city we decided to head to the hotel and throw in the towel. As we were on our way out and going no where fast we found a parking structure!
After 3 hours of shopping at the expo and 30 dollars in parking we headed to our the hotel in Walthum.
|Can You find ALEC?? The stick figure!|
I decided 30 minutes of running was as good as it was going to get. Between my knee giving me issues and my belly hating me I knew it would was best to keep it simple.
The fresh air engulfed me and excited me. This was exactly what the DR ordered. As I ran I took the time to talk to God. And Listen.
I thought of all those who were praying for me. I thought how God could use me being sick to empower others to pray, love and encourage. I thought if hoovering over a toilet like an animal brought others to HIM than that is where I would wanted to be.
Crazy how God puts us on our knees...Humbled.

Tomorrow we are taking the kids site seeing and I am going to try and meet Father Daniel. He is a Priest from Clarkston Michigan who is running Boston for the first time.
Also I want to say thank you to many people who have responded to my posts in prayer.
"May he grant you according to your hearts desire, and fulfill all of your purpose."
Thank you Lacy R for sharing this scripture with me.Anita
