Is it just me or do the days seem to be going by quickly? Or does that only happen when you have like a million and one things to do.
Well it's been another busy week. Between the things I've committed to do for our little school, to packing, and preparing and doing my karate exam and also making sure that my mom and brother are ready to fly and meet me in Singapore, it's been hectic.
But in the midst of it all I have managed to slow down and get through the week by grace and see the beauty around me and be thankful. So here's my five.....
1. This first one is a big one for me......and my daughter cause she has officially completed her exams and now she waits. I am so proud of her and this accomplishment. It made my heart smile.
2. Passing my karate exam. I'm so thankful for this and I'm so glad that I am sticking with it. I have bruises and aches but to know that I am acquiring a skill set to be able to defend myself should I need to, well that's motivation enough for me. The photo below is my sensei, getting the paperwork done before we start.
3. I finally managed to run a sub 10 min mile without hurting too much. Of course now I want to lower the goal....but I think I'll stay here for a little longer. Another fave about this, is that both my husband and I are out early in the morning getting a run in. It's a good feeling.
4. Lovely local gifts. Do you do teacher gifts? I know there are many different opinions out there. Tell me your thoughts.
How was your week?
