Well, Christmas Day is almost over.
I am a little under the weather, so I spent most of it resting.
Laying in bed, I remembered that I had not blogged yet today.
I didn’t feel like getting up, but I did it anyway.
In my head, I recalled one of my favorite quotes:
“Exceptions shatter dreams.”
I know it’s a holiday.
I know I’m not feeling well.
But I also know that there could be one person out there reading my blog for the first time, and I owe it to them to give it my best.
After all, Lou Gehrig played 2,130 consecutive games for the New York Yankees, all while breaking 17 bones in his hands and suffering many injuries, including concussions.
One day Gehrig got hit on top of the head and was unconscious for five minutes.
The next day, he was in the lineup wearing one of Babe Ruth’s caps that had been cut at the seams so the enormous bump on top of his head could fit in it.
If Lou Gehrig could tough it out, I surely could write a blog entry.
