On picking ourselves up

"We stumble and fall, and how, miraculously, we can stand up."
Maya Angelou

For some reason, these words ring especially strongly in my head tonight. Persistence is a remarkable thing, no?

Your turn: What else is remarkable to you?

Staying connected. Reaching out and holding hands despite differences ! That always evokes an emotion in me !

Its a different matter though, that i see less of it. But whenever I see it in action, it puts a big smile on my face !

When I am tested, at the time it feels so overwhelming.. and somehow I seem to rise above it... it may take time but somehow.... Guess the adage " God only gives what he knows u can take" is true...that, or its my stubborness that wins out. lol

"I get by with a little help from my friends" ;-) I know who to turn to, I get down on my knees and it's not just to wash the floor!

Have a wonderful evening Carmi!
