To fall 7 and rise 8

“To fall seven and rise eight, life begins now” – Japanese Proverb

I was told about this proverb in my adolescent years during martial arts training. Sadly, it wasn’t until I was in my mid twenties that I started to really grasp its meaning.  As a father, I’m learning that persistence and patience are two virtues that must be refined… and refined… and refined on a daily basis.
