It is not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.
Tomorrow marks two years and a day that we will celebrate. The details are private but the message is a common one.
Much is written on overcoming adversity and my views tend to line up with those who embrace a challenge rather than those who take it as an excuse to give up and throw in the towel.
It’s easy to get in our own way when life interjects those defining moments. Those things that you didn’t plan on, those challenges that you didn’t know were just around the corner.
Two years ago when life handed him a life or death challenge, he met it, one light pole at a time, and watching him age backwards from that day is a joy to see.
Happy heartaversary my sweet man, your strength continues to inspire me.
