A Fine Morning for Running

It was a still-foggy morning, chores done early before school, perfect for a walk - or a run, if you have just gotten your new running legs, or your new Chucks to make you go faster. Cool, are we not?

Off we go!


Brother notices the leg, on its temporary socket, is twisted. A brother with an Allen Wrench is handy when you need an adjustment, mid-run.

These running legs were an amazing blessing, awarded through a grant. My heart is so full as I watch these treasures bounce down the street, that I think it might burst.

I can't keep up, but I do my best. I jog behind with dog and camera, watching through misty eyes as my youngest beautiful boys soar. It is our job, as parents, to help them learn to fly, even though eventually it will mean flying away from us. What joy to watch them fly, and what a privilege, again, to have a front row seat to miracles.

Counting my blessings and
Trusting in Him,


  1. Aimee, I can remember when he first had his surgery to prepping for prosthetics. What a very long way he has come. It is so heartwarming to see how wonderfully he is doing.

  2. Wow, Aimee! That's all I can say. Is this his first time running?!! What a wonderful day!

  3. Aimee, so cool!!!!! Rejoicing with you! Go Isaac! :)

  4. Debbie, isn't it amazing to see how they grow up?!

    Liz, it was his first time really running any distance - and keeping up with everyone! Sniff.

    Heather, thanks for rejoicing with us! See you at gym?

  5. Wowed, how did your little boys get so big? Sweet, sweet post - especially brother with the Allen wrench. We all need a brother like that at some point in our lives.
