My in-law family decided to surprise me with a congratulations party yesterday. I was more than surprised, I was floored, ecstatic, humbled, grateful, more words than I can conjure. "All of this for finishing a 5K?" Then it dawned on me: they care, very much, they really see how hard I have been working, and then I cried. So here is a public thank you for that most unexpected, most gratifying display of support. I felt so much love that my heart wanted to explode. For a few moments I was a champion! It was honestly one of the happiest moments of my life; I felt like Miss America, but better, and THicker! Thank you Mom A., from the bottom of my heart.
