Monday’s are always tough.  And today was no exception.  We had a beautiful weekend!  The weather was near perfect.  So getting out of the fartsack would have been really hard if I wasn’t on Q for the day.  I love to Q on Mondays.  It sets the stage for the week…. There were some really strong Preblasts out there for the day, so I was not sure how many HC’s I would get.  As it turns out, we had a great crew of 15 HIMs including 2 FNGs curtesy of Clearcoat.

After saying good morning to everyone, we formed the circle, I gave the disclaimer and stated the 5 F3 Core Principles for our FNGs.  Then it was time to work….  Let’s see what happened.

Circle of Trust

We prayed for Half Price’s MIL, Ginny, Appletini’s brother, Tom, Tiny Bubbles, Clearcoat’s father, Cruz, and Paint By Number’s mother, Mary Cruz.  We thanked God for all the blessings in our lives.  We asked for strength to face the tough days in our lives and grace to handle any situation set before us.

Thanks to all the men who joined me today.  I enjoyed working out with each of you!
