Fighting tired. But as I listened to this song that my sister sent me, I saw in my mind two images. In the first, I saw a scene from the Lord of the Rings- Lady Galadriel’s bare feet, walking with grace and ease. In the second, my face was in profile, with a mountain in the background waiting to be conquered. The amazing thing is, my face held no fear, defeat or discouragement. This was my destiny and I knew without a doubt that I could take it on.
I’m not there yet, but I will be.
