(I get emails and messages everyday from friends and strangers asking if you can pass along the blog to friends and family who need to hear Dad's story of redemption and Christ's love. Yes yes yes. Please do. All glory to God.)
The death of my Dad has put a lot of things in perspective for me.
The main one is, I want a break. A break from obligations and schedules.
Perhaps it's the fact that I have just been through the process of watching my Dad die, from cancer, for the last 5 months and I am raw.
Maybe it's simple. I've never just-taken a break from teaching aerobics. Never.
In the last 8 years of teaching at McLeod, I've taught a total of....you ready for this?....over 2000 classes.
For 36 months of that, I was pregnant with our 4 girls. We buried one of them and I returned to teaching 2 weeks later. I broke my foot teaching a Saturday class and returned 3 weeks
And it's just for the summer.
I want to be with my Hunk of Burning Love, my girls (ages 1, 3 & 5), my Mom, my sister. I want to lay on the beach, have spend-the-night parties, do mission work, stay in jammies all day, travel, TAKE aerobics classes (on the 1st row....or 2nd row, or BACK row!), read my bible, and rejuvenate! :)
I need this.
My plan is to be sunshine-summer-girl for June, July and August. And, return to teaching in September.
I appreciate y'all. YOU ARE MY JOB SECURITY! :) Cebie is organizing all of the classes and instructors, see the summer schedule for more details.
So, watch out. I'll be rested and ready to kick some bootys! Right after Labor Day.
Of course, I'll be assessable. I'll be blogging and on Facebook, friend me, if you haven't already. Info below.
I love you guys,
