A Quote for the Weekend

All endeavor calls for the ability to tramp the last mile, shape the last plan, endure the last hours toil. The fight to the finish spirit is the one... characteristic we must posses if we are to face the future as finishers.

-Henry David Thoreau

Love it. Thanks for the awesome quote Marit. I was just thinking how you decided to hyphenate your last name. If I would have done that to mine, it would have been DeNovellis-Schwabenbauer. Our kids wouldn't have passed first grade trying to spell that! Ha! Hopeyou had a great weekend!
