virginia during her most challenging workout
This week I started a bootcamp workout class with another micro-preemie Mom. After class my friend said something that struck me. She said "when Im working out and ready to take a break I think of my little guy and how hard he had to work every second of every day." Our babies didn't get a break. They didn't get to hit the snooze button and skip the work out. They worked for every single breath. They continue to work for each step, each word, and each milestone.
Im pretty sure I will be thinking of Virginia every time I am ready to drop a plank a few seconds early, every time I think of taking the shortcut on a run, and every time I consider hitting the snooze.
