Determination and Practice = Success!

On the way back home all we talked about was what happened in the rolling place and we compared pain, bumps and bruises. When we see the rainbow, we forget what we have experienced before. The same is true of life; we fall and then get up. No matter what we do, we cannot be afraid of failure. Only through personal practice and hard work can we taste the joy of success! Roller skating left us so happy. Laughter is like a language and without any translation can move each other's heart.
