Shirley came up to me tonight after running and said to me that the website I suggested in my blog was a great resource. She then told a couple of her friends to go to the Nova site and prepare to be amazed. To be ready to read some really great stuff.
But I wonder if Shirley knows what a great resource she is.
I think I might have mentioned how wonderful it is to see her smile. She has the kind of smile that lights up a room. And I can only imagine how her patients feel when she walks into their hospital room. I would be getting out of bed if Shirley smiled at me.
But back to my earlier question … I wonder if she knows what a resource she is?
I have the luxury of remembering the very first race I did with the Runner’s Den. Way back when I first started to run after the surgery. Esther used to do a race to raise money for Jason’s House. I was so excited because it was my very first timed race.
My Aunt Dianna and I started off together. But she is a faster runner than I am, and as I always say, run your own race. So we went our own separate ways at some point.
And the last kilometre I met up with this lady who was clearly having a great time. And I remember this wonderful lady encouraging her running partner. Telling her that she was doing great. That she could do it.
And she continues to encourage runners in a special way, that only Shirley can. Thank you!!
