Catching Up With Me
The path is steep.
The summit is only imagined.
The obstacles obscure the view.
The approach was tiring.
The temptation was to quit.
The views were splendid.
The view from there will be glorious.
The effort will all have been worthwhile.
The imagination will be replaced.
The path back will reflect with pride.
The goal will have been achieved.
The watchword: Forward This Day..
There are summits in life that are worth the climb.
Believing is important. Knowing is the goal.
I believe in me, my potential and my goals.
I love the phrase which says "God don't make no junk!"
But God only made one perfect.
God made me with potential.
The rest is up to me.

The story is told of a distinguished man arriving at the pearly gates fully confident of a warm reception, and he was in fact well received.
It happened that when this tycoon of industry was entering through the gates a humble accountant from his firm was also entering.
Shown to his own mansion the tycoon noticed that the accountant's mansion was even more desirable than his own, and asked his guide to explain the difference.
His guide noted that while the tycoon had achieved his earthly goals of success almost unparalleled, the accountant had never stopped trying to achieve his own lofty goals of honesty, humility, and charity, adding that "You both have the same opportunities here."

"Catching up with me" is simply that story applied to my life.
We each have unique blessings and potentials. What we do with our blessings as we strive to achieve our potential will be the measure of our own lives when they are weighed in the balance.
Looks can be deceiving.

Selfishness is decried by all religions, yet it persists. It is at the root of greed and covetousness. They are at the root of the world's problems. We can each do our part by examining ourselves.
In some areas of the United States there are limited facilities for senior living. Where there are such facilities, up front costs aren't the only factor in choosing the right one.
