Strength of the human spirit

When we do the best we can, we never know what miracle is wrought in our life, or in the life of another. -Helen Keller

I just finished a 12 week medical treatment for a condition I probably have had my whole life. The fatigue from the medicine was debilitating and had me bedridden most days. The thought of simple daily chores seemed so overwhelming. But...my treatment is over. Once again, I have been given a second chance at life. In a month or so, I should be fully healed and will be able to start working out again.

There are those though, that won't be able to fully heal. They face debilitating diseases or injuries that will not get better and they have to learn to live with their afflictions. I am amazed at their strength and that of the human spirit. How one can conquer the worst of circumstances and help others find the strength to carry on as well. I am humbled by my experience and will always respect those that face challenging health conditions.

I am grateful to be on the mend. My plan is to become as healthy as possible and maybe in the process I will influence others to do the same.


I was a vendor last weekend at the Barbera Festival. The preparing took a lot out of me but it was well worth it. The day was beautiful and we had a blast meeting new friends and enjoying the event. Afterwards, we drove around checking out all the beautiful vineyards dotting the hillsides.
