Cue the trumpets

I've got a new song to pump me up before I go into meetings, or to sing to myself when I'm feeling puny...the theme song for ROCKY. Just listening to those trumpets blast makes me feel like I could run up those famous steps...and maybe I wouldn't punch giant sides of beef like he did (gross) but I can internally swing at the allergies and the migraines and all the other things that try to stop me. My brother and I used to shout at the world when we were kids "You can only hope to contain me!" and I feel that way now. I saw a card today that says we never really know how strong we are until we find out how strong love can make us. So true -- I feel the love from my husband, my friends, my family and my God making me stronger day by day -- just like a spiritual Rocky; you might not see the muscles, but that doesn't mean they're not there:) Bum bum ba ba bum ba ba bum bum bum...Getting Stronger!


  1. Keep up the great work, Kara Holden, and you'll be dancing on top of those metaphorical Philly steps, raising your arms triumphant at the start of a new day!
