Running with the Angels - In memory of Kael













On Saturday morning Layne and I and a bunch of friends ran in the Thanksgiving Point 5k Running with the angels. The proceeds from the race go to an organization that helps families who are in the same spot we were with Kael to help with medical costs, funeral costs etc. It was an AMAZING yet EMOTIONAL morning for me. I loved what we were running for, who we were running for and it was a beautiful day!! Its been so rainy here I thought for sure wed be rained out but guess what it was sunny as could be!! I had a in memory of BIB to wear and I put a few of the angels I know whom I was running in memory of. Kael of course, Ben my friends dad who recently passed away (she ran with us), Sheldon a friends fiance who passed away about a year ago (his fiance also ran with us), Tyler a co-worker who passed away almost a year ago (his mom and girlfriend also ran with us) and miss McKenzie whose family I love and adore so much and look up to so much (next year her mommy is going to run with us :) It was so much fun I'm so glad we did it. It was my first 5k ever and I did it in 44 minutes. Not bad for my first time, being out of shape and having a ton of hills and turns and curves!! I thought of all of the angels I know, I thought of all of you their sweet mommies and daddies their siblings their grandparents, aunts, uncles etc. I thought about how much life changes after you loose someone so important to you. I thought about how far Ive come yet how far I still have to go. I am so thankful to have met so many supportive amazing people. I love you all and all of your sweet angels. None of them will ever be forgotten!! I hope you had a peaceful weekend I am thinking of you all and praying for you all... All of the time!!! Lots of love to our angels who are in heaven watching over us, keeping us safe and strong!! xoxo
