I ran across this passage recently and I felt that it could easily apply to you and your life:

“This is the true joy of life, the being used up for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish, little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

George Bernard Shaw

Keep up the good effort, Fred. I think of you –
