The little big man has had a few weeks off from his out of school activities.
Now that it is time for him to go back, he is making up a lot of excuses: I'm tired, I've hurt my leg, we did a lot of work at school! Some of what he has said maybe true, however, he has committed himself to these activities and a little obstacle shouldn’t stop him from finishing what he started.
There have been many times that I have started things and wanted to give up. But I see the journey to complete is like a marathon – I am already half way there. Do I take the final 13 miles going back to the start? Or the 13 miles going to the finish?
Patience is a virtue – never a truer saying said.
So, whatever you decide to embark on, I hope that you don’t give up, especially, if it is something you really want to do.
