A Walk to Remember


I love Wednesdays. It brings to the forefront of my mind many memories, and the day to recount and share them with my blogging friends. My great, blogging chum, Lynnette, began this great idea of sharing on Wednesdays. If you visit her at http://lynnettekraft.blogspot.com/,
you can read her Wednesday Memories, and many others as well.
Thanks Lynnette, for this fun celebration!
My Memory today is current. not a past time, not in the recesses of my memory. Current, as in a memory made yesterday.
Yesterday was a long and very busy day. ( But, as I blogged about yesterday, it was FUN!)
The evening had was quickly approaching and I found myself eating dinner at 8 p.m. and getting kids to bed later than usual.
It was 8:30, and because we have day light hours longer now, I decided to head out on a walk. The baby was in bed, and the kids were in jammies. Dan arrived home from a late night on the job, and so we headed off on the country road together.
This was a blessing in itself. We never have this opportunity. I LOVE to go walking, and usually have to go alone. Or, at least, the dog and I. This was much better,, although, the dog DID go too.
We had some nice chats about our days, and saw people we knew. The road was quiet, the air was quiet, and it was such a walk to remember.
But....................
If you know me by now, you would know that it had to end on a fun note.
We were half way home, and he was being "pokey-slow!"
I decided to tease him, pick up the pace and start a little jog. I was wearing a skirt, and sneaks, and knew that it would be rather challenging. But, hey! I am always up for a challenge!
It was hilarious... the jog turned into him coming up behind me at a faster pace, and it turned into an all out running race - right out in the middle of the road.
Me, my husband, the dog, my skirt and sneaks, and US!!!
We raced the rest of the way home like that,( not a small feat!).. and I felt like a kid again.
I am sure that we were a sight, but, honestly,, I wouldn't have changed a thing!
This will be a memory my heart will remember.
A "race" to remember!

    Who won?? What a great memory. Long days sometimes produce the best memories from spur of the moment endings

    How very sweet. :)

    I was saying to a friend that as people we have trouble "living in the moment." Tendency to look either to the past or the future. Kudos to you for focusing on now!

    How wonderful. I can only imagine, with the life you two have lived since you have been married, that it was so refreshing to have some time to remember what set your wheels in motion together. Just the two of you. Those times don't come often enough for my husband and I (we only have 1 son and only been married not quite 2 years) but I know that time together, alone is always much deserved and appreciated. I hope we get our "race" soon :)

    Hi September! Just stopping by from Lynnette's.....congrats on being featured today! I loved reading about your run down the street.....I can totally picture it in my head. :) I think if we all just enjoyed life like that and didn't worry about what others thought, we'd all be much happier. Have a wonderful weekend!!
