Day 75: Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

You know how yesterday was better than the day before?

Well today was even better! It was a great day. However, it was touched by sadness. Peter’s grandmother passed away yesterday afternoon after battling with cancer. I was praying that Peter would be able to see her once he gets home Monday but God had other plans. This past Saturday I visited her, told her I loved her, and held her hand. At times like this I feel like a vessel for Peter and his family.

Despite being a tiny Italian woman, Nonni was so strong and vivacious. When I first met her I was intimidated! She was this firecracker with so much love for her daughter and grandson. It was always special to witness the bond between them.

Today I had this feeling like Nonni was there, helping me be strong. There was this lightness and ease that I have not felt in a long time. Thank you Nonni for helping me today. We love you and miss you so much.


With Nonni’s presence all around me, I feel ready to tackle this test tomorrow morning. This is my life right now….

But I feel good. Although I have not been studying so hard in the last few days, I feel confident and prepared. I know this stuff. I’ve been focused on this for the last 6 months or so. Life got in the way but I’ve enjoyed learning and focusing on the future.

My test is at 9am in Tampa so I need to leave home at about 8am. Need that time for traffic! And of course for breakfast and coffee. Oh and I’m packing serious snacks. Hunger does not help my memory.


I went to spin and had the best class of my life!! I felt fantastic and everything just clicked in my body. I was grooving to the music, keeping up the pace, and rocking out without much difficulty. After class the girl next to me said, “You’re good!” I was so proud :-). I think my vacation helped! Like I said before, rest is really the best for your body! You come back so much stronger.

I felt like I could run a marathon after that class. Or do a triathalon. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves… First up, exam time!

Wish me luck 🙂
