“If you're trying to achieve, there will be road blocks. I've had them; everybody has had them. But obstacles don't have to stop you. If you run into a wall, don't turn around and give up. Figure out how to climb it, go through it, or work around it.”
—Michael Jordan (b. 1963), retired professional basketball player, businessman
“Life is not easy for any of us. But what of that? We must have perseverance and above all confidence in ourselves. We must believe that we are gifted for something and that this thing must be attained.”
—Marie Curie (1867-1934), chemist, physicist, Nobel Prize winner
“If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”
—Anne Bradstreet (1612-1672); writer, poet, first woman to be published in Colonial America
Life is not all doom and gloom in the Grotegut household. We’ve reached a bump in the road but I am grateful that we’ve been saving our money and building up our food storage for when crazy things like this happen. :) Brent’s been actively looking this week and we are hopeful that it won’t be long before he finds a decent job again. (PS -If you’re in Utah or Salt Lake Counties and know of a full time accountant position, drop me a note.) If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant… & prosperity would not be so welcome.
