Persevere and Oversome WWC

I had every intention of posting my Weekend Words as hosted by Oddmix, but my parents showed up earlier than expected.  They were supposed to slowly tool along in their RV, but instead, Dad persevered through the night and managed to overcome common sense.  Normally, this wouldn’t be such a big deal (I may have done something similar a time or two myself) but, Dad just got out of the hospital on Thursday.  He had been there sense Monday with pneumonia. 

Anyways, they are here, just in time for Mom’s birthday today.  (Happy Birthday Mama!!) She is demanding chocolate cake for dinner!  Apparently she’s gotten to the age where I have to step in, play Mom and make her eat her veggies first!

Anyways…I was originally going to write about the girls’ Black Belt testing  from a couple weeks ago.  (Sorry I didn’t write about it, I was a bit banged up and it was all I could do to attend the testing)

So…here are this weeks words Overcome and Persevere


The girls persevered through the grueling test.  Mimi sparing.

Mimi was overcome with fatigue and took a quick well deserved rest


KT too!

    Very cool use of the words. Happy Birthday to your Mama!! My mother insists that she is old enough to eat dessert first. She says she lived the first half of her life the right way, now she will do as she pleases!! How do you say no to that kind of logic?!

    I’ll keep my fingers crossed for your girls!

    Hey Susan…just a very quick note before all the turkey festivities begin…these photos bring back so many memories of my youngest who was in kickboxing. Hopefully, your girls will have done just fine…at least had fun with it. In response to Coffeespaz…stressed is desserts spelled backwards…I always eat them first…why wait? Thanks for visiting my Random House Blog.

    Great life lessons in perseverance and overcoming! That first picture looks almost painful. Oh, and I vote yes for the chocolate cake also. Have a nice holiday, Susan!

    Happy (almost) Thanksgiving and, frankly, I think you did a great job on the WWC! Good luck to both girls. 🙂
