There were five of us that showed up on this cold and rainy morning. The route was from the fountain to Oakland Ave, Oakland Ave to Cedar Ave to Charlotte Ave/ Elizabeth Ave, Elizabeth Ave to Main St. … repeat. Somewhere along the way while at The Goose last night, I retweeked my groin so I decided that I was just going to walk this morning. Sir Purr decided to walk with me. We had a great time talking and getting to know each other a bit better. Sir Purr and I were able to complete about two and a half loops before it was time to get back for the COT.
At this time I shared some of the same thoughts that I shared during the COT at The Goose last night. Many thoughts have been going through my head pertaining to Kenyan this week. When Kenyan shared on FB that his wife had passed, he ended the post by telling us all to “hug the ones you love.” This has stuck with me through the week. Don’t be afraid to let your friends and family know that you love them. We are not promised tomorrow here on Earth, so we need to take advantage and make the most of each day and and that includes loving those closest to us. I also borrowed a message from Italian Job that he shared with the pax at The Commons a couple weeks back. The reason I chose to do mile loop repeats this morning was to remind us all that we need to keep our brothers close. We need to stay connected to each other and lean on each other when times are tough. We’re not meant to go through life alone. It’s okay to reach out and ask for help and lean on each other.
We finished the COT with the name o rama, announcements, praises & prayer requests. I closed out our time together with prayer.
As always, it is an honor and privilege to lead.
