A little love

I'm less than a week away from the big day, with anything and everything running through my head. Stevie has been leaving me notes all week - in my jacket pocket, on my laptop - each one noting the days left before the race and offering praise and encouragement.


The note today quoted Corinthians:

"Every athlete exercises self-control in all things.  They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we are imperishable.  So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air.  But I discipline my body and keep it under control, lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified."

These notes are touching in a way I can't put to words.  They assuage the inevitable doubts that accompany such an endeavor, reminding me I'm not alone in not just this journey, but in every journey I take in life.
