To the Courageous Amoung Us…living with ALS

This one is in memory of my friend Tony and my dad’s friend Steve

who have and are running their race with the catastrophic illness called ALS.

You may have a ‘courageous one’ living out this experience in your life  and this one is for you too.

Watching a loved one or friend live through continuous and unending challenges

is often maddening and heartbreaking.

Definitely it has a  profound effect on how you and I see our own challenges.

Bearing one another’s burdens is not always fun but always bears rich rewards.

Enjoy Jon Blais’s story of  how he and his family

are doing exactly that.

Then be encouraged, not to stop trying, in over coming your own challenges.


How long should you try? Until. –Jim Rohn

Inspiration of the Day:
Completing in an ironman triathlon is no small feat – a 2.4 mile swim followed by a 112 mile bike ride followed by a marathon (26.2 mile run)! Jon Blaise recently completed all of this while having a debilitating disease called ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), which attacks the motor neurons, or nerve cells, in the brain and spinal cord. “I think when I’m sitting in a wheelchair, down the road, I’ll know that I’ve fought the great fight,” Jon smiles. “This is it. Your life. Face your fears and live your dreams.” [ more ]
