Napa Vacation – Courage – Three Cups of Tea

I am still in Napa. Last night I walked down to the vineyards while Cody laid by the pool (overlooking the vineyards) at The Wine Country Inn. I sat under a tree.  It was wonderful to hear the birds chirping, the crickets to my left and to my right was a large rabbit moving about the vineyard.  The sounds of nature, the breeze and the visual beauty was so peaceful.  Cody and I listen to stories of courage from people all over the country. It is always good to get away and renew perspective.  I am grateful.

I am about 1/4 of the way through the book Three Cups of Tea by Greg Mortenson and loving it.  I don’t think I have ever read a book about a man who has been through such a journey of courage and challenge.  He is unstoppable determination.  It is amazing he is alive today considering what he has been through.  It really makes you think about the day to day complaining people engage in.  I don’t think there is any reason to complain again after reading this book about Mortenson and the people he has come to love and support.  This book is one I highly recommend to you.
