On ParentSociety.com, I have an article running today. It is not my usual ” humor infused” (attempts at humor anyway) type of Sweet Spot story. However, I wanted to share it here nonetheless. It starts out like this:
Yesterday, I read the news, much like I always do in the morning before sending my kids off to school. I enjoy reading up on a variety of subjects: health, stupid Hollywood pet tricks (a.k.a. celebrity news), consumer reports, world news, etc. Most of the time, once my kids are off to school, I begin my work and go on with my day. Sometimes, I even relay interesting information to my husband. But yesterday, I read an article that haunted me throughout my day and into the next.

Some stories must be remembered. Thank you for reading.
We all meet breaking points and may yet find more strength, incredible strength, that we never even knew was possible let alone have to keep on fighting, but when we lose the will to keep fighting on then we lose everything, whatever the situation or our circumstances. Thank you for sharing. 🙂
Thank you for reading and for your thoughtful comment!
As it happens, I’ve just seen this:
He who loses wealth loses much; he who loses a friend loses more; but he that loses his courage loses all.
Miguel de Cervantes
Wow, I love that quote. I think that is very true, too. I feel sad that we live in a world where one person is allowed to destroy another persons courage. Thank you for sharing that quote!
