5 AM Friend

This older guy at the gym…he blesses me. Just when I’m pretty sure I’m the last person to belong in the gym in the morning he says “Hey there!” as he walks by and smiles. He also waves when I leave. This morning I considered hugging him. Just because he’s so warm. And then I saw that we were both sweaty, remembered I don’t know his name, and thought better of it. But there was a moment. 🙂


Yup…I napped…between the gym and work. I took a shower, got dressed, and got back under my covers. I don’t fell well. And a nap was the only thing I could think of that might help. Thanks God for beds, naps, and kitties who don’t know what the hell you are doing but join in the sleepy fun anyway!


I didn’t breathe well today. And my coworkers, while freaked out about how bad I sounded, were so compassionate. Or maybe that was them trying to make me go home so they don’t get sick. Either way…I took it as concern. 🙂
