There are days when you don’t feel like exercising or doing much of anything. On those days, I think of this woman…93 years old, her daughter told me she never misses a day of walking. I couldn’t believe when I came upon her, shuffling down the icy path, while I myself struggled not to fall in my sturdy boots. This lovely Swedish woman allowed me to take her picture. I told her she was “an inspiration;” her daughter translated. She smiled and I could tell by her expression she didn’t think it was a big deal…only she was enjoying the sunshine.
Perseverance is not a long race; it is many short races one after another.
