“There’s a price you pay for going uphill. Right now me and Spence are totally exhausted. But then there’s a reward for going uphill. And that’s what we’re going to experience now. Here we go…”
This is a video from my friend Ken Davis. He’s biking down a Tennessee road. What a rush!
Work is tough. Parenting is sometimes exhausting. Taking care of the family can be tiring work. The biker must feel the temptation to turn and go back. Do parents? But there is a crest in the hill. You’ll crest it soon. That’s when the fun starts. The rush. What fun!
We went out to eat a couple weeks ago with a younger couple who had seven children 9 and under. They probed us for advice. They see joy in our life, and they want the same in their family. Really, we are having so much fun with a household of teenagers; life is so good right now.
But we remember when they were all little ones running around. The truck up the hill is tough in those years. But it does get better. And it’s well worth the hard work now.
