“Bad things do happen; how I respond to them defines my character and the quality of my life. I can choose to sit in perpetual sadness, immobilized by the gravity of my loss, or I can choose to rise from the pain and treasure the most precious gift I have – life itself.”
My former tennis pro was from Kenya and over the years I have heard many stories about his childhood. He grew up in the poorest of slums in Africa and has by the grace of god achieved a success known to few. He became one of the top tennis players in Africa representing the Davis cup for over ten years.
His fame enabled him to provide a life for his parents and family that would be considered wealthy by Kenyan standards.
