Encouraged by his example
Friday, February 01, 2013
As i was running laps in the Rec Ctr this morning, i came across an elderly gentleman who was walking laps with an obvious limp. I would say that judging by the way he was walking and some other things about his stature that he was the victim of a stroke. I asked him how many laps he was going to do today. He told me that he does 20. I offered him some encouragement for doing something so challenging.
As i thought about our conversation, i was reminded about a lot of things. I am obviously blessed with good health, and at any moment that could change radically.
My hope and prayer is that no matter what i face in life i will be as diligent as this gentleman was in trying to stay as healthy as possible.
