What does reward mean to you?
I look at this photo and my heart grows three sizes. Last September, I had the opportunity to travel to Park City, Utah, where I enjoyed a very active week running, hiking, and biking on and around mountains just starting to show fall color. On Sunday morning, we drove to Solitude, enjoyed a yummy breakfast, and hiked the mountain. Partway up, we discovered a clear, calm, mountain lake and this stunning vista — our reward for the hike.
Reward is filthy with possibility: it could be your third grader’s beaming smile after reading her first chapter book, a steaming mug of chicken soup after a long run in the cold, a photo of your brand-new baby — your reward for patience during nine months of construction, or your extended family gathered around the dinner table.
Can’t wait to see how you interpret this challenge. Have fun!
