Two Tests

.
The test of courage
comes when we are in the minority.

The test of tolerance
comes when we are in the majority.

-Ralph W. Sockman

What a beautiful day, indeed. Love me some Chris Cagle. Nice painting, too.

So many of us fail both tests. I'm going to try to keep these in mind as life goals.

Now there is two tests I am put to regularly.
Tolerance, is my main test. I need more...maybe tolerance isn't the word. Patience. That is my biggie.
Thanks P!
