I am on vacation, a time to recharge my batteries, a time to reflect on my life and all that I have. I have had some challenges, but perseverance has made the struggle worthwhile. Thursday, this was made so clear to me. I wanted to drive to the top of Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park--a 17 miles drive, up hill all the way. About 5 miles into the drive, I ran into fog as thick as pea soup. I could hardly see in front of me. I had to decide should I turn around or keep going. After some thought and prayer, I decided to keep going for a few more miles. For 5 miles it was nerve racking, but I just took it slow, then just a few miles from the top the fog cleared and I was rewarded with some of the most breath taking scenery!
I am so glad that I stuck it out. The drive was not for the faint-hearted, but the rewards were so exceptional.
This was just a lesson for me to remember when I am facing hard times.
