  5. I have been blessed by these quotes. I have a thought….. I think challenging times are like a long upward winding trail. We however should never give-up and should not stop climbing because, we might be at the last round before the top. Even if it is not the last round, we still shall have moved one more round towards the top.

    just again, when we keep moving we shall have attained one more round above the ground!
