A Fighting Spirit

I posted this back in January, but after the passing of Patrick Swayze, I felt it a good time to repost about this man and his courageous fighting spirit.

This week I was finally able to watch the Barbara Walters interview with Patrick Swazye. I sat down with my mom for what I thought would be an interesting interview with a man who is dying. When I finally wipped my eyes for the last time, as the interview came to an end, I thought to myself that this man has great courage, great faith and a great drive to live.

Instead of giving in to this disease that takes most sufferers within a few months, he is determined to LIVE. He is not sitting in a dark room waiting to die, he is out shooting a television show and taking care of his many horses. I found his drive and determination something to be thankful for. I'm glad there are people like Patrick in this world to show us what a fighting spirit looks like, and to give us hope that no matter how bad things may look to us, there is always a reason to LIVE your life to its fullest. For that, I am thankful!

Hey, are you looking to live "The Life You're Meant to Live"?? I know I am. I am lucky enough to be participating in a blog tour featuring John Bevere's book, "Extraordinary". Join me the week of October 5-9 as I review his book. There might be a little something in it for you (hint: a copy of the book). For more information, check out the Random House website.
