Good morning again, everyone.

Today is a little different. I'm posting a link to a youtube video. It is the narration by Tony Robbins of the real story of how Sylvester Stallone struggled and overcame obstacle after obstacle, lost everything, was out of food, out of money - and even his wife left him! I knew nothing about Stallone's life before I heard this story a couple months ago. It brought me to tears. If this isn't inspiration, I don't know what is.

Hope you enjoy.

Oh - and please leave any comment you feel like - or add a story - whatever you want. :)

Hi Shirley and Robin. Glad you liked it. I don't want to give away anything for those who haven't watched it - but I just loved the story (the ending) about his dog!! Thank you both.
