“Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing,
great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions
of honour and good sense.
Never yield to force.
Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”

Winston S. Churchill, Never Give In!: The Best of Winston Churchill’s Speeches

(the wee one working on what it takes to crawl / Julie Cook / 2018)

Spending time in Atlanta with the wee one celebrating Poppie’s or Papa’s birthday
(depends on who your ask) )

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize?
So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things.
They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.
So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air.
But I discipline my body and keep it under control,
lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified.

1 Corinthians 9:24-27

    Funny how our determination changes over time. We start out kicking and screaming – we learn to crawl, we try to walk, we fall, eventually we gain solid footing. When we grow old we fall, try to get up, crawl and eventually kick and scream our way to the grave.

  2. She is growing so fast, dear Julie! It seems like yesterday that she was born! You must be so proud of her determined progress! 🙂 ❤

    She is such a cutie, Julie!

    • She is RobbyFaye…and it is so hard to not be with her daily…despite my husband’s constant admonishment that the caring I was having to do was sucking the life out of me…as I am reminded of the “guilt” mothers/ grandmothers just seem to live with 😉
