This is LOVE...

I had a bad weekend at work, and came home whining...
Then I read this email, sent to me by my good friend, Sam.
God and Sam have such good timing...


Father-Son relationship


READ THE STORY FIRST, THEN WATCH THE VIDEO.
A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a
marathon with me?'. The father who, despite having a heart condition, says
'Yes'.
They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and
son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying 'Yes' to his
son's request of going through the race together. One day,
the son asked his father, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together.' To which,
his
father said 'Yes' too.
For those who don't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon
ever.
The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile
(3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180.2 kilometer) bike
ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast
of the Big Island . Father and son went on to complete the race together.
NOW WATCH THIS RACE:

I have seen tihngs about the Hoyts before, and I tear up every single time.

The message that we CAN do all things through Him who strengthens us is an important one, and it never hurts to see it.
