Buttontapper Challenge: Day 9

Motivation – Where do you find your motivation on days when it’s hard to keep pressing on?

I look at my husband, whether he’s awake and reading a book, or asleep in the bed or on the couch napping. I look at him and that always brings me a smile.

I look at our son and his wife. When I do, I can’t believe how lucky I am to have them in my life.

I look at our grandchildren. They tire me out, but always with a smile. I know I have to figure out a way to spend time with them that is quieter, less frantic, in order to introduce them to the power of patience and waiting to see what will come.

I look for the people in my community–my church community, my writing community, my civic community. They challenge me to do something good for others and that always ends up bringing more good into my life.

Do Something Great

Those are the things that motivate me, by reminding me of how blessed my life is. With their support, I know I can do something great.
