(I found this "unpublished" this morning...it was written last Thursday. Just getting around to proofing and publishing. That sounds about right.)
From Seinfeld episode #166, airing December 18, 1997...
JERRY: And weren't there feats of strength that always ended up with you crying?
I was trying to figure out this morning how to laugh rather than cry...I don't need another headache.
I couldn't think of anything until I glanced at my to do list. It is its usual crazy length...not a laughing matter. But then I glanced at the top where I had scribbled a thought I had about our upcoming youth conference. It said:
hope, perseverance, strength
I had to grin that this was randomly written at the top of a very long list. Hope, perseverance, and strength are indeed the order of the day.
We've made it to Thursday. No small accomplishment. I've been performing feats of strength all week.
