It's The Climb!

We went on a family hike to the wind caves! I was not excited to wake up at seven in the morning because I went to bed really late the night before. .. BUT it was a fun and beautiful hike! The weather was AMAZING!! I love Arizona in early April! I haven't worked out for months so the hike was a little challenging for me. Basically, my family was ahead of me the whole time. It made me think how we are all in different places in life, but our goal is the same place! While I was hiking I also thought about the new song

It's The Climb

"I can almost see it
That dream I’m dreaming but
There’s a voice inside my head sayin,
You’ll never reach it,
Every step I’m taking,
Every move I make feels
Lost with no direction
My faith is shaking but I
Got to keep trying
Got to keep my head held high

There’s always going to be another mountain
I’m always going to want to make it move
Always going to be an uphill battle,
Sometimes I'm going to have to lose,
Ain’t about how fast I get there,
Ain’t about what’s waiting on the other side
It’s the climb

The struggles I’m facing,
The chances I’m taking
Sometimes they might knock me down but
No I’m not breaking
I may not know it
But these are the moments that
I’m going to remember most yeah
Just got to keep going
And I,
I got to be strong
Just keep pushing on" <3

I love this song. It's helped me realize that you have to be strong, keep your head held high.. keep the faith and the climb is what makes it worth it in the end!! We are so blessed to have the gospel to help us get through the times we stumble and fall.

I love that song!!! It's amazing! I want you to sing it for me! I had so much fun hiking with my family. That is truly one of my favorite things to do together!
I saw you running down! Way to go girl! You inspire me!!! I love your analogy! "A family that hikes together---STAYS TOGETHER!!! I love my family and I love you!!!
Who took that amazing head shot of you???? What a photographer or maybe it was the model that made it such a good picture!!!
