Each day is another opportunity

Thursday June 20, 2013 #534


“I love the man who can smile in trouble, gather strength from distress and grow brave by reflection.”


~Thomas Paine


The people I admire the most are those who find the inner strength to face their demons, overcome their circumstances, and find their own brand of success.  They are not infallible, but more often than not they keep pushing forward regardless of the challenges they face.  They have time for a kind word and a helping hand for others even when they are burdened.  And they never fail to say thank you when a kindness is extended to them.


I hope I am as I describe above more often than not.  Each day is another opportunity to be that person and I am grateful for that chance.
