As I write this, the opening games of the Olympics are on in the background. I love the Olympics. The talent and beauty of the athletes is amazing to watch. What really grabs me, though, are the personal stories of the athletes. I love to hear about their dedication, the adversity they had to overcome, and what it took for them to get there. Human stories are the most poignant.
And so it is with us. We each have our own story. We may never make it to a national or international stage. We may go through life virtually anonymous yet our lives matter, our stories matter. Every day, we get up and write a new page in our lives. Make it the best it can be!
