“Its not how hard you hit, but how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.” ~ Rocky Balboa
I love that quote! It’s part of today’s Warm and Fuzzy and I just had to write it down on a card and re-read it.
Sometimes, when life has hit us with a one-two punch, in my case, too many friends passing in the past month…we have to keep moving forward, even when we/I don’t feel like it.
Such a powerful message.
I liked Dose. I got kicked out of my office so he could have it, which made for a funny relationship. He
walked by the studio window every day and waved and smiled.
He stopped in just two months back to tell me that I had a pleasant voice to listen to. It made my day
so much so that I wrote it down in my gratitude journal.
I miss him walking by the studio window. I keep looking for him…
Winsor came along during the early days of the Pajama Jam. She had lost her mama to breast cancer and I
don’t know, we just connected. She was passionate about rescuing animals and I could never keep up with
who she was fostering! I had to call her once, one of those “in the middle of the night calls”, and she
was there in a heartbeat.
I met Melinda at a Dixie Chicks concert. Most folks don’t have a good thing to say about the Chicks but
they brought me not just a friend, but two. I met her daughter Elizabeth that same night. And for the
next years to come, I would look forward to receiving my Christmas card with Elizabeth’s school picture,
which promptly took it’s place on my frig. My heart goes out to Elizabeth and her sister Sarah. THey
are much too young to have lost their mama.
Wade was a friend from Nashville that I met through a mutual friend, Tari Laes. She thought we both
had the same kind of passion for country music and she was right. I loved to hear his snarky-sarcastic
comments that would make him laugh before I could.
Four deaths over the past two months is a sucker-punch from life. I am carrying my friends with me,
as I try to put one foot in front of the other and keep moving forward.
Thanks for letting me share. I hope whatever has hit you, I hope you can find a way to keep moving
