The First Day is the Hardest

We all have difficult days but normally the first day of our lives is the day we face our greatest challenges. With every new day and every new challenge comes new opportunities. I am frequently reminded of my father‘s favorite saying “Take One Day at a Time, Son” when I am having a trying day. Usually, the stress of thinking about the problems and challenges we are facing proves to be actually more difficult than the problems themselves. Although it is often difficult to do, it is important to face each new day (and opportunity) like our “First Day.” After all, if we could make it then, we can definitely make it now. With each new “First Day” comes a renewed sense of hope, faith, and endless opportunities to face our challenges, conquer our fears, and lead ourselves to a successful future. One of my best friends just had a baby and their little guy reminded me that the human will to persevere is probably one of our greatest assets if we could only learn to see the simple truths in our lives and focus on what is most important we would all be better off.  The following are some pics of the little guy right after he was born.  Also check out pics of mom and dad, (the Bride and Groom on their wedding day).
