The pride of discovery

After many years of developing ourselves either for a sport, a hobby or for our work we are sometimes challenged to see if we can win. This may be in a race, a competition, or in the examination room.

I well remember all of the occasions just mentioned. As a keen sports person there is many a race I have won and felt the rush of joy by reaching the finishing tape first, the victory of the competition just won, even the satisfaction of working hard for an examination and feeling a glow when I know I can answer all of the questions that challenge my knowledge.

I was speaking with someone recently and this reminded me of such a time that is stored in my memory bank. There are already new year lambs in the fields and not so long ago I was looking at the wonderful sight you see in the picture.
