Inner strength helps create happiness 

On January 9, 2011, I returned from my in-law’s home where I’d been helping my brother-in-law make an insulated box to house the batteries of the solar system that powers his yurt on the family farm.

As I drove up my driveway, I noticed a huge cloud of smoke in the front lawn.

I parked and got out of the car to investigate.

When I opened the door to the basement, I heard a strange, eerie crackling sound. I could see no flames, however. Wary of entering my home, I backed away and went upstairs see if I could figure out what was going on.

I pulled the door open and was struck by a wall of smoke and heat. I immediately backed away and dialed 911.

Makes me want to go out and "just do it" and rise above all the challenges - all those things that make me feel like I am being stomped down!!!! Thanks Dan, for the encouragement.
