It was years ago that I heard this quote. I don’t remember where I heard it, I just know it stuck with me really strongly. I guess it’s the same theory as “try, try again” or “never give up”. It’s the same message… it just had stronger meaning. The obstacles that I’ve been through throughout my life so far have been a lot more to me than just “oops, gotta try that again” It’s not trying again, it’s picking myself back up after I’ve fallen, been walked on, drug through the dirt, beaten and bruised, broken and scarred… and no matter what get put in front of me and no matter what knocks me down, I WILL get back up. Coley sent me this photo along with a link on my facebook wall this morning. From almost the first day I “met” Coley, she has had an almost eerie way of knowing how I’m feeling without me saying anything to her. She’s on the opposite side of the country from me, yet when I really need a pick me up, it’s always her that’s either texting me saying she knows something’s wrong and “what’s up”, etc. Most of the time I can’t help but laugh, because I don’t know how she does it! It’s insane. Well, she did it again. I really needed this today. With everything that’s going on in her life with Noah’s surgery and now his stressful and exhausting recovery, not to mention she’s been sick herself throughout the past week or so, she STILL does it… and knows when I need a hug. Thank you Coley. I love you more than you’ll ever know.
