Running joyful and triumphant!

This picture represents my favourite kind of running: joyful and triumphant.
Running like it's almost dancing.
It doesn't matter if you fall: you just pick yourself up again.

It also represents the way I wish to be a mom: joyful and triumphant.
And when I slip and fall, I'll just pick myself up again.
It's all part of the journey.

For more Wordless Wednesday go here


  1. I LOVE to see children running like that; all wild abandon, arms flailing everywhere.
    Reminds me of that episode of Friends where everyone took the mickey out of Pheobe for running like a little girl but I was thinking 'good for you girl!'

  2. My husband and his family loved "Little House on the Prairie". It's amazing how these old TV shows just keep getting better.

  3. so how I want to parent as well.

    the running piece? lets just say I think Im more likely to nail the mamapart :)

  4. I had run in the snow like that last night, it was lovely. And yes, it is the best kind of running.

  5. I agree with Rona's Home Page. I miss those good old TV shows like 'The Waltons', 'Little house on the prairie" etc.

  6. I was gonna say, that looks like a scene from the "Little House on the Prairie". I still love to watch the re-runs on tv. Anyway, I agree with your wish as a mom about being joyful and triumphant. Being a mom is the hardest job I've ever hard, it's an ongoing learning experience. Have a great day!

  7. Correction pls, lol. I meant ",,,the hardest job I've ever HAD not hard.;-)

  8. Makes me want to go run down a hill! That's just the best feeling. Funny how smiles and good cheer are so contagious. Thanks for helping me end my day with a smile!
