I have come to fall in love with teaching in Catholic schools. What are YOU in love with?...
"Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything. It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fall in love, stay in love, and it will decide everything." - Pedro Arrupe

We Did It!
In the words of my sister: "It was oppressively hot, but we finished."
It wasn't pretty as we came upon mile 10 of the Chicago Women's Half Marathon this morning. So, when I had a hard time taking deep breaths and had to walk, Marisa stayed right with me. Because of all that walking, we didn't make our goal time, but I'm actually okay with that. There are some things in life you can't control - and the weather conditions during a race is one of them. It was a fun day - and no one can take that away from us. :)
