I came across an article in my local paper today about a woman named Jane Lang. Lang is blind and travels about 3 hours to be at as many Yankees games as she can, totaling about 50 games a season! She walks a mile from her New Jersey home to the train station and then takes a 70 minute train and then on to the game, with only the help of "Clipper", her seeing eye dog.
The Yankees honored her as part of their HOPE (Helping Others Persevere and Excel)week. They surprised her at home and she was over-joyed.
I thought it was a beautiful story, but I just kept thinking about her perseverance. I need that.
Complaining that I can't clean the bathroom because I am so tired from taking care of the kids just doesn't cut the mustard.
This woman is blind and travels 3 hours into NYC no less!
So tonight I am praying for perseverance. For a lot of things....
That I'll tell you about in a later post.
