Moleskin – 21 guys showed up to put in some work.  If F3 had not have met, I would wager about 10 guys, maybe less, would have gotten out of bed and done the same thing on their own.  Its a privilege to be able to be part of this group.  I’ve missed a few posts lately due to nagging injury and getting out to post is a reminder of what a blessing it is to be able to get out of bed, to be able to stand up in the morning on your own 2 feet, to be able to walk without assistance, and to be able to come out and work hard.  We take a lot for granted but life is fleeting.  Like a vapor, like a flower that withers.  Let us not forget to put priority on the things that matter for eternity and be grateful for the small pleasures each day brings upon this Earth.
