I "stole" this quote from Basic Joy

God allows disappointment to occur on the threshold of every human endeavor.  It occurs when the boy who has been enchanted in the nursery by Stories from the Odyssey buckles down to really learning Greek.  It occurs when lovers have got married and begin the real task of learning to live together.  In every department of life it marks the transition from dreaming aspiration to laborious doing.
~C.S. Lewis

So applicable to my life at the moment.  Here's to laborious doing.

The fun of laborious doing and the joy in the journey. Pretty much the same thing and it all boils down to that "endure to the end" phrase. It is hard to keep going day after day. I'm in the same place. But getting better at it - at least today.
