Pushing

This Sparked Me!

Do you ever get up, feel completely wasted, but push yourself to do what you have to. I did that today and had to bowl but I was really weak and did not bowl good. We would have lost 40 points if I did not go, we won all 4. Why do we do that to oursleves? I had an obligation and I hold up to them, how many do that now? Responsibilities that we make are to be fulfilled and I am old school, you do that. How much is that upheld in today's world with the young?

    How true. Keeping promises and commitments seem to be rare these days. I do try hard to lead by example and prompt my son to do the same.

    We are to be examples and how many 'good examples" do young people see today? May others be able to trust our word! emoticon
