A little peak......

I know I've needed to update my blog but I haven't had anything to write about. No cute kid stories, no spiritual insights, no embarassing moments.....nothing. So this morning while I was walking on the treadmill at the gym, I had an idea. Let me give you a little peak into my life.

THE GYM
When you hear those words you probably think of Bally's or Gold's. Well, our little gym is nothing like those! There are no personal trainers, no aerobics instructors or classes. Our gym has 2 treadmills, 2 elliptical machines, 2 bikes and several weightlifting machines. We also have 2 tanning beds, lest you forget that we are in South Georgia!
This morning, as well as most mornings, I was the only person working out.
Our gym is owned by a sweet retired couple, Mr. and Mrs. Jones. Caleb loves going to see Mrs. Jones because while Mommy is exercising she will watch tv with him and play with him. And if mommy goes to the gym at the right time in the morning, we get to see the train come through town. It won't do for Mrs. Jones to let Caleb just see the train through the window. No ma'am, she will take him across the streeet to sit on the bench and watch it go by!
Now I miss aerobic classes and such but nothing beats the personal care we get at our little gym!

So what about you? What simple thing about your life do you love?

Cheryl, our gym is a lot like that too. Just recently they have added more machines. They also have a small indoor pool for swimming laps. The last couple of times I was there I had the pool to myself to swim and just think. It was so quiet. There are a lot of perks living in South GA. The people in our church are some of the sweetest most down home people. God has surely blessed us here the last 7 years. Blessings to you.

Personal attention is way better! Plus, you don't have to worry while on the treadmill. Also...props to you for going!

I think this is a clever and interesting post. You made me think about your question before you asked it. I absolutly love my bed. Almost every night, I thank the Lord for it and pray for those who don't have a place to lay their heads that night.

everything is so hard right now for me that I've found enormous pleasure in just having another person in the house so that I can do what I need to do without loading the whole gang!
