Some days, when you’re feeling wounded, weak, and discouraged, you just gotta hunker down and try to hold what you’ve got.
Understand that on these days no forward progress may be made and that’s okay.
The goal is to keep the ground you gained yesterday. Fight for that alone today.
Do this, and the day is counted a success and the battle not lost.
Tomorrow we will rise and fight again for a chance to advance and win!!
Last evening I went to Mars Hill College to hear Dr. Maya Angelou speak. It was the first time for me and I was delighted and inspired. If you are unfamiliar with her, you can learn more at www.MayaAngelou.com
The resounding theme of her message was recognizing the rainbows in our clouds and being that for others. If we are ever to make any worthwhile and lasting contributions to society and our fellow man, being a ray of hope and support for someone else in their lowest hours would be the way.
People are our greatest resource. We are each others best assets. If we are ever to achieve uncommon success it will take the friendly cooperation of others.
I encourage you today to do what I heard Dr. Angelou do last night. Think on the people who have been a rainbow in your clouds. Feel the love and blessing of those gifts. Give them praise in your heart and on your lips. Let them know what they have meant to you.
Have a great day.
I wanted to let you all know, King died yesterday unexpectedly from complications following a routine procedure at the Vet hospital. He shared every day with me for over 12 years. He was a gentle soul. He was good company. He was my daughter’s pet.
He was my friend.
