The week Allen had his stroke our friend, Merlin was in a surfing accident while in Hawaii. Merlin has always been a great example to us in Primerica. He continues to humble me.
Sometimes I get caught up in a pity party that Allen's recovery is taking a long time. I appreciate Merlin's smile. This is him at the fundraiser they put on last night to help pay for renovations in his house so that it is wheelchair accessible.
It reminds me that I should be more grateful and patient.
