So thought for the day- When you have goals, it takes determination to complete them. It takes guts, pain and a plan! Terry is proof that you don't have to be accomplished at riding to ride 100 miles. She went through pain- with more pain to come tomorrow. But she smiled through the whole thing and stuck with it. Some of the clients we met today have gone through the same kind of pain. I met with Jason- a recovering alcoholic who lost everything, then was diagnosed with cancer. He gave up all hope and tried to kill himself. A friend checked in on him and saved his life. After this experience he met his now wife and realized he had a purpose. His desire to complete his goal of being a better father and husband is what is keeping him sober now. He has a good job and a wonderful support system at Safe Haven. I was proud to meet with Jason as he shared his story and how he has saved enough to move into a house! Keep going Jason and don't give up!
