My workout sessions at the YMCA are a time for me to plug in the head phones and let the sweat flow. It may not sound glamorous, but I love it.
Last night, a sweet older lady using a walker called out to me as I finished my workout. She wanted me to know how much she enjoyed watching me on the treadmill because I looked so happy and peaceful.
Her few kind words meant more to me than I can adequately describe.
For a moment, I would have sworn it was my Mother talking to me. It was just the kind of encouragement that my Mom would give to me when she was alive. I was honestly awestruck. It’s a God thing when these momentary gifts are given to us as a remembrance of loved ones gone to glory.
It was an unusual thing to say to say to a complete stranger but I thanked her for her encouraging words and then I thanked Jesus for my precious Mom who I miss daily.
