Thank'ee kindly, Wendi - the best teachers say they learn more from their students than they teach them. It's a lot like that, in some respects. I get so much inspiration and motivation from our team mates - great way to help, and be helped by, people...
Tried to send you a copy four times with no luck - do you allow them?
Anyhoo, here's the message I tried to relay:
"Just wanted to let you know that you inspire me when I see your great numbers on the Moonwalk Challenge on our Chair Exercise team. I used to put up pretty good numbers at one time, but because of problems I'm almost at a standstill - I can only walk a few steps at a time although I'm not wheelchair bound. When I see how well you are doing, it encourages me!! Happy Stepping and keep up the good work!!!"
Attagirl! Himself said something similar within just the last day or so. I may be out in left field (frequently am, methinks, lol) but I truly believe there's always going to be somebody at the top, somebody at the back, and - it doesn't matter. You know what ol' Bob Browning said: "A [person's] reach should exceed their grasp, or what's a heaven for?" If I don't have a target to shoot for, a goal to achieve - I'd be at loose ends.
Thank you for your note and the update ! It has been raining and WINDY here after weeks of beautiful sunny dry weather. It is going to go back to full sun soon though ! That is the forecast anyway ! I love Seattle. Sounds like they are one busy couple ! Talk soon ..
