Chapter 8, Page 13, Book 21

Every mountain top is within reach if you just keep climbing.

Barry Finlay 

August 13th - dont give up

You don’t need to climb a mountain to know that it’s high

Paulo Coelho 

Life is like a mountain. Hard to climb but once you get to the top, the view is beautiful.  Each stopping point represents the goals one sets for himself.  Life is going to be ups and downs.  There are going to be hard climbs and easier climbs.  Some days will be struggles, yet yet every day the best reward comes from the journey itself. 

You can sit down, rest and gather yourself for the next part of the journey.  We find ourselves going from one situation to the next, never really getting a break.  We always have to be alert to all sorts of things, both good and bad.   You can’t seem to see all the way to the top.  And none of us knows how much longer we have. 

We must start enjoying all the parts of the climb, not just the parts we see immediately as enjoyable.  Life will have it’s ups and downs. Yet every day is an opportunity to see something spectacular. Our goal should be to see the beauty that every day has to offer.

I figure I’m going to enjoy the journey .  It’s the only one I’ve got, so I might as well have some fun.

You have to go through those mountains and valleys- because thats what life is, soul growth.

Wayne Newton

There you go! Like Mac Davis' sings, "You gotta stop and smell the roses. You've got to count your many blessings everyday. You're gonna find your way to Heaven is a rough and rocky road, if you don't stop and smell the roses along the way."
Happy Friday!

WE must keep on plugging past all 'false tops' until we reach that pinnacle and KNOW we are on the mountain top. (Now I have another blog entry to do, thanks!)
Sherry & jack Good stuff!
