Unconditional Love

The love of a parent and child is immeasurable, just like God's love for us.

A friend sent this to me this morning, and I was so moved I wanted to share it with you.

A son asked his father, 'Dad, will you take part in a marathon with me?'

The father who, despite having a heart condition, says 'Yes'.

They went on to complete the marathon together. Father and son went on to join other marathons, the father always saying 'Yes' to his son's request of going through the race together.

One day, the son asked his father, 'Dad, let's join the Ironman together.' To which, his father said 'Yes'.

For those who don't know, Ironman is the toughest triathlon ever. The race encompasses three endurance events of a 2.4 mile (3.86 kilometer) ocean swim, followed by a 112 mile (180 .2 kilometer) bike ride, and ending with a 26.2 mile (42.195 kilometer) marathon along the coast of the Big Island.

Father and son went on to complete the race together. (The son works at B.U. in the technology department.)

The Story of Rick Hoyt

This is the inspiring story about father Dick, and his son Rick.

They have run 950 races, 60 marathons (including their 25th Boston Marathon), and 6 Ironman triathlons.

Their motto is, "You Can". I say, amen to that and to their faith! I also thank Dick for showing us all how we ought to be. Having unfailing love and support for his son and family.
