Seek the Peek 1-1-13

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Seek the peak and aim high!

But never try to do it alone. It is easy to get discouraged or distracted when you walk alone.

Find friends to climb with you. The views look more beautiful and the load seems lighter when you are sharing with friends.

The victory of the summit seems sweeter when sharing it with friends. So tell others about your dreams, desires and plans. You will be surprised at who will join you in your quest!

Who are my best friends? My friends are those people who know who I am, and who I want to be. They encourage me to keep moving forward.

With the help of friends and family, I will keep on growing and becoming the person God wants me to be.

    We will be back hiking Monadnock sometime around Martin Luther King day. I can hardly wait! We plan to hike with Randy Pierce of 20/20 Vision Quest and his service dog Quinn.
