Persevere

Kristin's Summer of Color led us to Purple this week, with some bonus shimmer, so...


To me, the color purple has always meant perseverance and strength.


 Hanging on and forging ahead when it is so very hard.

Being tenacious when pushing that piano uphill
is all you can feel,
and there doesn't seem to be an end in sight...yet.

 But...

 then

 there is

 and it's beautiful.


and it was worth it.
