Yesterday I ran to Target, with the boys, to get a couple of last minute things I needed before the marathon. I always no matter what I am going to Target for get sucked into the kids sale clothing section. T-shirt for $1.80, shorts for $2 – yes please? If you catch the deals at the right time they are beyond awesome. As a stay at home mom of 3 kids, I need to find deals on stuff or I’d be broke!

As I walked towards the rack I spotted some pj’s that had a star on them that looked like mine[my sister and I have matching star tatoos on our left wrists]. It was the first thing my eye saw. When I took it out, I noticed it was Colton’s size and then I noticed something else…..Dream Big….

WHAT?!?! You have got to me kidding me….

Dear Lord. Thank you for reminding me that I should Dream Big. That you will indeed be with me tomorrow as I run 26.2 miles. Thank you for simply being YOU. I believe. <3 Dorothy

GOOD LUCK TOMORROW all my dear runner friends!!! I know that there is a plan for each and every one of you. You will do amazing!!

What’s my secret? This is the secret: Christ Lives in you. This gives you assurance of sharing his glory. Colossians 1:27
