Look Up

My friend Mary Beth pointed out that the NaBloPoMo theme for May is Look Up. I'm not sure if I'm ready to commit to daily blogging, but I like the theme, so here goes. Part of the trick will be to not use up all my thoughts in one post.
One person I look up to is my son, ManBoy. He's about 10" taller than me, so to look him in the face, I have to look up (literally). Right now I look up to him for another reason. This weekend he and DogBlogger's husband rode 150+ miles on bicycles (yes bikes not motorcycles) to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis research. I'm proud that my boy is willing to go to the effort of fundraising and to sit on that bike and pedal 150 miles in two days. He's just $25 from raising $1000 for this cause. Donations are open until June, so I'm sure he will make that goal. I am blessed to be the mother of a kid who is great (most of the time).

I'll keep thinking about the theme "Look Up." Perhaps the next post will be the folks I have to look up on the map to see where they came from to visit us over the weekend.
