Thar' be Dragons... Thoughts on Counting the Cost and Making the Cost Count.
As I stared at the calculator's summary, I looked over at Bill, looked back at the screen and thought, <gulp!> "Hmmm. Thar' be dragons."
Big, scaly, fire-breathing, sharp-toothed, bank-account-emptying dragons. Lol. I'm very grateful to be in a position where these expenses don't make my sport prohibitive to me, and I'm blessed to have a husband who so completely supports my endeavors. Even when napalm-breathing dragons come for their treasure.
My answers? Yes.
I may lose sight sometimes of things like expenses (ummm, my bad, but it's so shiny!), or how much everyone around me is invested in and affected by my journey... I may momentarily misplace my appreciation, but not for long. In truth, I'm humbled. And to be totally honest... it makes me feel a bit guilty. But in this case, guilt can be a positive thing... it keeps me on track, keeps me accountable.
Every moment of this journey costs... I'm going to make sure it counts.
