Listen to the Mustn'ts

Tonight The Hubs was reading short poems to my Little Buddy. The poem below caught my attention and I knew I had to share it with you all!
Listen to the MUSTN'TS, child,
Listen to the DON'TS
Listen to the SHOULDN'TS
Listen to the NEVER HAVES
Then listen close to me-
Anything can happen, child,
ANYTHING can be.

-The Shel Silverstein (Where the Sidewalk Ends)
I know I am guilty of getting caught up the Mustn'ts, Don'ts, Shouldn'ts, Impossibles, Won'ts and Never Haves...but Anything can be!

Today I am grateful for:
The shortest trip in the history of Army Trips (Yay, hubs is home!)
The park!
Story time with my Little Buddy!
A most relaxing weekend!
Run Happy Peeps!

    Sales starts tomorrow 10/7 at 6AM. Not sure how fast the coupons sell? There are 25 to be sold through Spirit 105.3 radio station.

    I am hoping that I will be able to buy one or 2 before they are gone.. I mean heck that saves $50 on shoes or winter running gear..


You're pretty much awesome!!
