I run, and I run, and I run…
Waiting for a moment of change and excitement between broken miles…
It finally happened today.
After school, in my inbox, I found the results of an application that I had placed nearly two weeks ago…

…since adopting running as a living joy five years ago, today I was accepted onto a running team, sponsored by a local running store.

It may seem trivial, but to me it’s another step towards future goals.

Personally, this is a monumental prayer answered. I’m not one to cast myself out in the public eye. My God is so good.

#429 of things I never dreamed that I’d witness in my lifetime:

Waking up late on a Saturday morning, heading into town with my wife to enjoy a cup of coffee at the local coffee shop. Driving home, paying bills, balancing our account, and beginning the deep cleaning of our house. Witnessing the fact that we’re actually growing our savings while paying off bills in mass at the same time.

Pretty cool place.

Cats are sleeping, wife’s out enjoying the day with her friends, and I’m joyfully at home. Relaxed, listening to progressive tracks of synthesized music, and taking care of this life that we have.

We are blessed.

We will praise.

Welp…
Originally it was an apartment that approved us for moving.
Then we checked on a duplex north of the city on a lake.
…and the apartment offer was blown out of the water (pun intended).
-Washer & Dryer
-Full Basement
-Balcony
-Back Yard
-Front Yard
-Two Car Garage
-In The Country
-Near 15 miles worth of trails
-Two minutes to the lake
-2.5 baths
-2 bedrooms
-High ceilings

Cost: Less than the apartment with potential opportunity to own.

Wow.

I spent five hours in school today. Just organizing this and that, and getting my computer updated. About twenty minutes before I left the principal came into my room. We talked briefly about the upcoming school year, technology, and behavior styles of students. It was just a refreshing small part of my day because it continued to demonstrate to me that I’ve arrived to the education world.

For that, I am grateful.

After a board meeting, some news releases, and a few emails I found a document in school account.

My official contract.
The. Real. Deal.

Even with class preparations going strong it still doesn’t feel real. It’s definitely something that’s hard to convey, but I love this sensation of joy.
