Life is a constant challenge, but it is worthwhile

Xinxin passed away on January 10, 2009. Her mom posted this recently. No matter where you are in your life, what a friend of hers wrote below reaffirms what we all know is true. Make sure you click the link below to read the balance of her friend's wisdom.

Have you ever observed the behaviour of birds in the face of adversity?

For days and days they make their nests, sometimes gathering materials brought from far away

And when they have completed the nest and are ready to

lay eggs, the weather, or the work of humans, or some

animal, destroys it, and it falls to the ground, all that they

have done with so much effort

Do they stop? Continue the challenge here

As Melissa wrote, you are singing even with the tears rolling down. Keep working at your nest and teaching Nic & Hannah to sing, too. Thanks for the link; it is a powerful reminder. xolisa
PS I saw a little boy this morning that reminded me so much of Max...I let out a little laugh when he stuck his tongue out like Max would when he was concentrating. Thinking of Max ALL the time....

I read the whole post, it is very touching. I feel it too, when all is said and done, life is worth the effort.

Max didn't get the chance to grow up and live his dreams. I've resolved to make the most of the time I've been given.
