Life Lessons from the Struggle
This question came in from a Success 2.0 Webcast
“What is the most valuable life lesson you learned from this experience?”
James, there are a couple of valuable lessons that Dad and I have talked about regarding going through this intense health struggle.
First is how important it is to have the home court advantage. Our family has really pulled together and rallied around Dad and his needs, helping him to recover and prosper. This didn’t happen by accident, it is the result of the many “family seeds” that Mom and Dad have planted all of these years.
Second is seeing Dad’s core belief in action — that you respond instead of react. It is easy to talk about when everything is going well and the problems are minor, but it is truly something to behold when you see it in action in the middle of a major struggle.
And third, seeing Dad’s unshakeable faith lived out daily. Even in the pain of recovery, Dad’s smile communicated joy that only comes from a relationship with God.
