to remind myself...

“Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits, who neither enjoy much, nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory or defeat.” 
T. Roosevelt

Michael and I dream big.  We do big.
We also fail in big ways.
We experience a lot of defeat.
But our victories...when we experience them...are huge.  Momentous.  Glorious. 
It seems this season of our lives is Designed to teach us humility.
I can think of a list of at least eight things in the last four months that were "working" for a while... working rather well, actually.  And then they started to malfunction.
And God humbled us.
So we went back to the basics and started afresh.
We are persistent little buggers, we are.
Because it's better to dare mighty things.
