Fight Fight Fight!

"Look at the stone cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred-and-first blow it will split in two, and I know it was not the last blow that did it, but all that had gone before." Jacob A. Riis

Well, I'm getting SOME of my fight back. I can't get too riled up or I about fall over. But I read this and thought, can you imagine the people who gave up at 99? Or even 100? Only one more smack with that hammer and their nemesis would have fallen. I couldn't live with myself. So I guess I have to just keep swinging.

Thank God He gave me a fighting spirit, because humanly, I would have been done with this battle loooooong ago. But it's like God inside me saying, "You can do this. I know it's tough. I know you don't like it. I also know you believe that everything you're going through is for a reason, and will somehow work together for your good. I love you my precious daughter, and I will never leave you or forsake you. Hang in there...better days ARE coming. You can DO this!!"

And so I do. I keep putting one foot in front of the other. If I fall I will get up. If I stumble I will brush off my knee. If I trip I will remove my obstacle. When I cry I will dry my tears. I will NOT be beaten by a disease. I will NOT give up. I will NOT give in. IT will NOT win.
