Focusing on the challenge

Today I woke up with a terrible catch in my back, and throughout the day it has moved down my leg and up my back. I haven't been in this type of pain for awhile, and it was upsetting to me. I have been doing and going so much lately, that I really didn't want to go backwards. The worst part is, I don't even know what happened to cause it?  So it is late, but my sweet daughter Amy ( a massage therapist ) called me and invited me to come over and see if she could help give me some my post will be short tonight. I thought a nice thought ,would be better than me whining to you. I need to be more patient, but sometimes that is harder that it sounds.
Good night dear friends.

Don't Let The Hope Die
What is life without salt and pepper? Of testing times and sorrows? I guess tasteless would be the word. In fact, they not only add taste to our lives, but also introduce us to new and unexplored sides of ourselves.
Looking at the bigger picture, salt and pepper situations give us an opportunity to step out of our comfort zones so that we grow, learn, fight and survive.
Life is like any other challenge. Once in, you only focus on winning and surviving, followed by happy moments when you propose a toast to victory and then get ready for another challenge.
The happy moments just mark the celebration of your survival and victory, hence are short lived. So, don't complain about lack of them in your life, for, it's the challenge that you need to focus on and not the celebration.
However tough the going may become, you need to keep going. Don't ever give up. Have faith in God, yourself and your abilities.
