More Enduring to the End

I realized another meaning for me in enduring to the end. The other day when I was at the park with my grandchildren, we played a game of tag in and around the playground equipment. I was grateful that I have continued my habit of exercising each morning because I enjoyed running around and flying down the slide as I tried to catch them or run away from them. It came to me that all my exercising was more than just checking it off the list and getting it done. It has a greater purpose or end result in keeping me in good physical shape so that I can play with my grandkids. I even did under dog as I pushed them on the swing; even though I tripped on the mat and went flying and rolled in the bark. At least they got a great laugh and I didn't get hurt.

One time I was at the movie theater with my 3 year old granddaughter and she took off running away from me and I was so glad for all the miles of running I had done because I was able to catch her! Ha!
