Perseverance - Probably one of the greatest example of persistence is Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln was faced with defeat throughout his life. He lost eight elections, twice failed in business, his fiancee died. He suffered a nervous breakdown. However in 1860, he was elected the 16th President of the United States. Pain – Get accustom to rejection and failure and take it in good stride. Never take things personally and no pity–parties allowed.The road to success is not smooth. “When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on.”- Abraham Lincoln
As you all know it is a busy time of the year preparing for the Holiday's. Thanksgiving brought us tasty food and full bellies! We woke up to snow Saturday morning which set the stage for a great family photo shoot under our covered log bridge.
