I have encountered many hills and mountains in my life…step after step, rung after rung and breath after breath.

No matter how high, the climb is a blip on the other side…I choose to get up on the down stroke, giving thanks for the light of day.

Each plateau is a place to rest and prepare for the next as there is always another mountain, always another step, always another place to land and always another dream to realize.
