Jamie Fortune you are an Ironman!

This has been quite a year.  I’m thankful that I’m in this family of mine.  Earlier this month Jamie competed in the Ironman-Florida.  This picture was taken half way through the marathon portion, after she had finished her 2.5 mile open water swim and 112 mile bike ride.  She never stopped smiling the whole race and even here it looks like she is nearly skipping.  

What a physical, mental, emotional and yes spiritual accomplishment for her. On  Friday evening at a celebration gathering with her coach, training friends and fellow Ironman finishers I had the opportunity to listen to their reflections.  Wow!

I’m a spectator, an observer, a mother, a listener and I’m exhausted.
