"Tough times never last, but tough people do." -Dr. Robert Schuller
These last couple of days have held many personal challenges. On Saturday I completed my second 5k. It was much more difficult than my first one because it was primarily uphill. I had set my goal at 40 minutes, which is two minutes less than my first time. When I began up every hill I just kept thinking that I was stronger than this and that there is nothing set before me, that with God behind me, that I cannot accomplish. I finished my race...at 38.34!!! I surpassed my goal time!
With the tragic passing of my darling kitten, JohnBoy, yesterday, I've had to emotionally find strength in God's healing and my husband's hugs. It's amazing how quickly an animal can become part of the family.
This quote brings a smile to my heart today. I am tough!
