Those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; They shall mount up with wings like eagles, They shall run and not be weary, They shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31

thanksgiving day was the 100th anniversary of the very popular "run for the diamonds" 9 mile race held in berwick every year...a race that my husband was well acquainted with because he ran it every chance he could.

memories of tim are everywhere and sometimes they are sad and kinda depressing but other times they make me smile and are kinda uplifting.

this thanksgiving-thanks to my niece-i had some of those memories that made me smile and were uplifting. as you can see from the picture she ran the race this year IN MEMORY OF UNCLE TIM. how awesome is that!!!!

she had recruited some others to run with her and actually had t-shirts made...i don't know if you can see it all in the picture but it was sort of a collage of tim. very cool. i wasn't sure how i would do at the race...i was a little afraid that when i saw her running up that mountain i might lose it in front of my other family members all there to cheer her on...but i did ok. it was like i had this really wierd PROUD moment. proud of his niece for thinking so much of uncle tim to do this and proud of my husband for always giving his all and setting such a great example. i admit that tears welled up a bit but it wasn't because i was sad...i was so impressed. training to run a 9-mile uphill race was no easy task...kudos to lindsey for making it to the finish line. love ya.

in all i had two nephews and one niece run the marathon in memory of tim and very cool. this year over 2,100 people ran this race...1985 actually finished.

the t-shirts were amazing. it shows all the things that were important to tim-running, softball, golf, PEPSI, a cross, scripture, ect...

2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.

thanks for checking in

That was great but just for my curiosity who were the neice and 2 nephews? I haven't seen anyone for 11 years, it's good you have so many good memories and you are getting new good memories. Love & Prayers Delores & Harold
