Role models

Life can be devastating for some people and they struggle every day with cancers, mental illness, physical deformities and other challenges which we think would cripple us. Yet these same people who continue to thrive amidst all that pain serve as a beacon for the rest of us who have lesser burdens to bear.

It is easy to look at your own life and wallow in the little inconveniences we suffer but then hopefully perspective comes when we see the tenacity of the human spirit in those who shoulder so much more.

I try to think of that every day during my early morning walks and try to be thankful for everything I have been given; both the challenges and the joys.
