If Timmy Can Do It…

There is a little donkey in Donegal who has stolen my heart.  Timmy was born this year at the Donegal Donkey Sanctuary with severe tendon problems in his back legs.  Why has he so captivated me?  I recently had my third surgery on my ankle to fix a an ongoing problem.  Timmy is improving, and as I watch him go, he encourages me to not give up and to keep going.  God bless animals for their uncomplaining spirits.  Blessings to you also on your journey.  Lisa

The Beauty of Slow and Steady

tortoise

I love the tortoise in the “Tortoise and the Hare.”  He never gives up…he believes in his little turtle heart that if he doesn’t stop and just proceeds at his slow and steady pace, he has a chance at beating that egotistical rabbit.  You all know the story….rabbit snoozes, overconfident; and that persistent turtle claims the gold medal.  🙂

I have recently begun working out after a long period of not doing so.  Muscles that have lain dormant for probably all of my adult life are now screaming to life, causing me to have to rest a day between workouts in order to go back and do it again.  But I know I need to be a tortoise, to be slow and steady and persistent.  My body will adjust eventually, right?  haha  I realized last night that just a little bit each time is key; trying not to overdo it and paying later is crucial.  And now I’m going to say it, the wonderful phrase you’ve all been waiting for….”Slow and steady wins the race.”  Pray for me that I will be a good little turtle.  😉  Slainte, Lisa
