Managed to get up and get out to walk the dog something which I have not done lately – I’m really truly not a winter person. Then when Gregory got up I encouraged him to stay home today as he had a runny nose for the last few days and was a real trooper throughout the visitation and funeral. He has tubing with the Cub Scouts tomorrow and I want him feeling 100%. Then I worked through the day productively. My Franklin Makeover Virtue for this week is “persistence”. Yup…did that.
This evening I decided to shut down. Went and chilled in front of the fire with Walter, the dog at our feet and a movie – The Good Lie.
THESE kids were the epitome of persistence…and courage, self control, initiative, kindness, enthusiasm, decisiveness and they saw God in others…in all things. These kids did not travel almost 1,000 miles through the desert on auto pilot. They did it with a burning desire to survive together! If you want to watch a classic Hero’s Journey watch this.
“I concentrate my energy on the challenge of the moment and my actions help me forget all else.” and “I have been given eyes to see and a mind to think and now I know a great secret of life for I perceive, at last, that all my problems, discouragements, and heartaches are, in truth, great opportunities in disguise.” – Og Mandino
At the end, just before the credits, there is an amazing African Proverb: “If you want to go fast; go alone. If you want to go far; go together.” Now…think on this for a moment…what could this pertain to in our daily lives?
