I was going to write something on things I’m thankful for. With the long weekend of Thanksgiving behind us, this seemed like a good time to slow down and appreciate the simple things in life which are often overlooked by the busy day-to-day routine we get caught-up in. While checking out some of my usual web places to get information and updates, I ran across this very real story on Endurance Planet’s web site about Ben Davis’ AT journey for ALS. What was more amazing was the person who inspired Ben with his never give up on your dreams mentality: Jon Blais Ironman story on YouTube by NBC. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9Vrjp2P0GlE
There is one more moving story someone shared with me worth watching about Dick & Rick Hoyt:
The human potential, when motivated, can achieve unbelievable accomplishments under less then desired conditions for the good of all. What more is there to say or be thankful for!
