“You really have… grit.”

Pause

No one had ever said that to me before.

Yet that day, it was perhaps the most cherished compliment I have ever received.

I had befriended an older man in his 80’s.  Ok, so he really sought me out after talking with my husband a little about our life story.  He wanted to know more of my story.

(I am always a bit taken back when someone asks me to talk specifically about my life story.)

And then after hearing about challenges, about experiences, about heartache…

He said,  “You really have… grit.”

Grit?

Courage, Bravery, Strength of Character,

Hardiness, Resolve, Determination

Nerve, Moral Fiber, Endurance

Grit.

I want to have grit.

We ALL need some grit.
