The only way to climb a mountain...

Is one step at at time!
A couple of days ago we went hiking as a family for the first time.  When we sat at the base, my children thought there was NO way we were going to make it all the way to the top.  We started our trek...one step at a time...and before we knew it...we were on the top looking down.  We had a great lesson on the top about setting goals and keeping our eyes on our goals.  We talked about how we can do hard things...one step at a time.  Life has reminded me of this simple lesson several times lately.  If you are facing things that you find insurmountable...just remember, you CAN do it, one step, or day, or moment at a time.  We can do hard things!  We are not alone!  I been gently reminded to always keep my eyes on my goals and spend time on the things that mattermost.  I have committed to trying to make all my moments count!

Thank you for your kind words of encouragement, Shanda. As I go out today I will leave my "mask" at home.
Take care! I hope and pray all is going well today!

My doctor is seeing me weekly now to be certain timing is perfect for more reconstruction. You know I will face that day, when it comes, more positive and cheerful because of the example you continually set. "From the mouth of babes" we shall be taught. :)
