El Salvador

Hey Tori,

I was just thinking about how great the El Salvador trip was...and how awesome you were in El Salvador!! One of my biggest joys on the trip was watching you interact with the kids, play football, and especially love on Gaby. It was probably our last family trip to El Salvador, and I think it will always be my favorite trip. Thanks for making it special!! And thanks for posting so many cool pictures on Facebook!

Lord willing, I will be going in the future. Let me know if you ever want to go back!

Running Quotes

Hey Tori,

I'm going to post inspirational quotes on running on this thread. I found this website:

My favorite from that link is:

I always loved was something you could do by yourself, and under your own power. You could go in any direction, fast or slow as you wanted, fighting the wind if you felt like it, seeking out new sights just on the strength of your feet and the courage of your lungs. Jesse Owens

Here is a bunch more at this site:

Running is like mouthwash; if you can feel the burn, it's working. Brian Tackett

Life is short... running makes it seem longer. Baron Hansen

Do you have a favorite running quote? If so, could you post it here. I would love to read it!

Love you!!

Hey Tori! I just wanted you to know how proud I am of you...what you accomplished in Cross Country is awesome!! It's amazing how God has created you to run!! I really enjoy watching you. There is a famous quote:

Eric Liddell: I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.

It may sound corny, but I feel God's pleasure when I watch you run!

Anyway, this Thanksgiving I am thankful for YOU! Here is a silly acrostic, but it is my way of saying I am grateful to God for you...

Tough - your inner and outer strength is amazing!
Over the top with energy - your energy challenges me and inspires me! no mountain dew! :)
Relationship with God - I'm grateful you gave your heart to Jesus!
Interests - sports, action stuff...I love it!

I am thankful for you! Love,
