This is Peanut Butter Brickle. If there is one thing that I am sure of, it’s that Fruitycake encourages me. Not just by his jokes. And his fruityness.
But also by telling me that I can do something. When something seems overwhelming to me, he lets me know that I am strong. I already know this. But when someone else also tells you, it sure does give you extra strength.
Like yesterday when we went to another waterfall. I’ve noticed that there sure is a lot of climbing when it comes to waterfalls. And even though I know it’s worth it, I have to remember it’s just a big hill and I have to get over it to see the reward.
Things are like that in life, aren’t they? You see a hill. You see a problem. You see an obstacle. And you can turn around. Or you can say, hey. This is a hill. Get over it. Others have done so before me. And if they can do it, I can do it. I can do anything.
Knowing your own strength is tricky. We may feel weak. We may think we aren’t good enough. Or worthy enough. Or young enough.
But do you really know how strong you are? You won’t know until you give it your all. And honestly your all. Not a half hearted effort.
Life is full of hills. But life is also full of waterfalls. It’s a hill. Get over it.
We will be in this rental until tomorrow and then headed to Blairsville, Georgia. We will have some news for you on that Italy place by the end of the week!
