  • He who endures

    Endurance is a great quality normally found in the life of successful people. Successful athletes certainly possess this ability of sticking with a task until they achieve their goal. An athlete endures the physical hardships in order to win the victory.

    Life could be compared to a marathon race, which contains many twists and turns and can only be won by endurance, steadfastness and dependability. As you run the race of life, no matter the difficulties and the obstacles you face, remember he who endures to the end will be the real winner.

    Thought for the week: A beautiful face will age and a perfect body will change, but a beautiful soul will always be a beautiful soul.

    Finally heard back from the back doctor. They said there was no concern about small cyst at this time and want to do a repeat MRI of spine in a year. The appointment is already set up. Weather sure has been weird. I am ready for warmer weather for sure.

    Thinking of you wishes go out to Ronnie Booker, Kenneth and Rita Gibson, Billy Duncan, Ronnie Dunn and Jaden Reynolds.
