As we circled up to start, we heard sleigh bells as @SoulSurfer (Mon, Wed and Sat) came around the corner lit up and jingling like a Salvation Army Santa!
SSH, Squats, Merkins, BACs, and stretches
Sandbag Circuit:

@SoulSurfer (Mon, Wed and Sat) handling Christmas after the loss of M's father
@Christmas Underoos frustration and issues with their IV process
All of us as we go into Christmas with travels and family. Handling the next few days with patience, kindness, and love.
Kindle won't let me copy/paste, so here's the cliff notes:
Reading from Ecclesiastes (1:2; 14; 2:22), Solomon was remorseful for the way he'd spent his life chasing after material things instead of what really mattered. Relationships are more meaningful that items or activities. The most important relationship we can have is with God, and the next is with our families. Order you life according to what really matters. Make sure your priorities reflect what is truly valuable.
Great job this morning men! Keep Accelerating! Identify your limitations, and then work to push past them.
