“There’s something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” – Winston Churchill
I listened to a podcast on perseverance recently and how perseverance feeds hope and hope feeds perseverance – cyclic.
- Hope feels
- Faith sees
- Love never fails
This has been a very tough week for my girl. We will be saying goodbye to October Sky. You see she’s been training this baby for the last three years and I can’t tell you just how proud of her I am. Her tenacity is unlike any other. My girl does not give up! Her perseverance reminds me of my Dad when he was fighting cancer. He loves nothing more than his family and family is everything.
October Sky is a part of our family, but she will be going to a loving home and Ellie will still be able to visit her as much as she wants. I believe it’s a tough lesson in life, but one that will make her stronger.
Sometimes we don’t understand why we go through the life experiences that we do, but I truly believe that the tough roads can lead to beautiful destinations. One day she and I will be able to share our roads, all the curves and bumps. We will laugh and cry and she will better understand the why. We all have our own paths that we take and we may not understand each others’. If there’s one thing we can all do to make the world a better place right now, it is to be kind – You never know the battles other people are facing. But be bold and do not fear.
Fear of others allows them to lead us. For many years I feared real life monsters, monsters that will have no place in my story anymore. For when we trust in God – fully trust – then the devil will flee. It’s time to write a new book.
