On Mother's Day some of my kids and I headed to a nearby trailhead to hike for the afternoon! It was a little more intense than I had imagined... The hike down to the river was easy, but I ended logging 5 1/2 miles on my FitBit and 89 flights of stairs by the time we got back... Whew! Next time I hope we can all go, but perhaps find a different route back to the car which doesn't include practically scaling the side of the mountain like the loop we ended up taking... It did motivate me to continue working towards getting back in shape so that next time my kids won't have to worry about their hyperventilating mother. Nevertheless, it was a gorgeous day and we all enjoyed it so much!
“The way Jesus shows you is not easy. Rather, it is like a path winding up a mountain. Do not lose heart! The steeper the road, the faster it rises towards ever wider horizons.” - St. John Paul II
