This morning, I was out for a winter run with Fast Tracks. Of course my enjoyment truly comes more from the connections you share with other runners than a 10 mile loop.
Today was different. Upon the finish, a marathon mom asked me a question – no one has ever asked before. She asked me, “what is the very one thing you love most about her?” “The very one . . .”
A question so powerful that it took my breath away. Our tearful eyes met and our hearts connected as mothers who love their children.
And I said, “why it’s Jodi’s vibrant spirit. That’s the one thing – I love and miss very much.”
I love . . . your smile, laughter, curiosity, athleticism, smarts, beauty, attitude, confidence, generosity, creativity, strength, work ethic, kindness, energy, guts, determination, style, compassion for others and courage. I love your passion for life. And your love for your brother, family and friends.
But what I truly love is . . .
I love that you’re my daughter!
