“Happiness lies in the joy of achievement and the thrill of creative effort.” –Franklin D. Roosevelt
“Waiting is not a bad thing; it can bring its own joy – the thrill of achievement” – David Jeremiah
Mt. Adams, Yakima County/Skamania County, Washington USA
Mercy and Will went cross-country skiing on Mt. Adams, in Yakima County / Skamania County, Washington USA. It is 12,280 feet elevation. They drove up to a campsite to camp, then hiked up to the top of the mountain. They wanted to reach the top of the mountain to see the sunrise. They did the timing of hiking. It was worth the effort of hiking and waiting. The magical moment came as the sun arose. The thrill and the joy were indescribable. The emotion of such achievement could only expressed by the celebration of love.
