Perseverance

"The real glory is being knocked to your knees 
and then coming back. 
That’s real glory. That’s the essence of it."

Vince Lombardi



Spending the evening having a glass of champagne 
with my hubby and playing scrabble. 
Celebrate the moments of life....


Enjoy the Journey!

  6. I love a year off with pay. Good for you!

    I read this last night but didn't take the time to read the scrabble board. It is that lack of attention to detail that keeps kicking me out of V-Nav!

    Glad your back in the game.
