The same cadence
I was sweating on the elliptical trainer a few weeks ago when I noticed what appeared to be two strangers running side by side on the treadmills. I was mesmerized by them. They ran with the same cadence. I was in awe of their rhythmic sequence. Two complete strangers running with the same beat.
I allowed my mind to wander as I continued my not so rhythmic dance with the elliptical trainer and I had a few thoughts:
1. I am thankful for the people who do life beside me at my pace.
2. I am thankful for the people who run ahead inspiring me to push myself and for the lessons they teach.
3. I am thankful for the ones who run behind, reminding me to slow down and enjoy the moments life gives.
4. I am thankful that God puts strangers, acquaintances, friends in our lives to run the race with.
