Day 8, November 8
Today I am thankful that God created enjoyment – specifically sports. And to be more specific, Colts’ football.
I love the simple pleasure and enjoyment that comes from watching a sporting event.
I love the way it draws me in – the way I feel a part of it as I cheer my boys on.
I love the way it becomes a part of us, becomes tradition, gets passed from one generation to the next.
I love the way it connects people – brings us together despite our differences.
When we were in NY, we met a couple from Baltimore who had been Colts fans since their days there. Despite the fact that we had nothing else in common, there was an instant bond over our love for our team.
Day 9, November 9
Leo and Renee
Our dear friends.
They mean so much to us that it’s hard to narrow it down to one short blog post.
We’ve only known them for three years, but in that time we’ve been through more together than many friendships survive in a life time.
We’ve been through five moves, three states, two babies, one wedding, one road trip, thousands of papers written and books read, countless game nights, many loaves of meatloaf, ups, downs, tears, laughter, triumphs, heartbreaks, and adventures.
Through it all, our friendship has grown deeper, richer. We’ve drawn closer to each other and closer to the Lord because of this friendship.
I am so thankful that we’ve been on this journey together. I look forward to many more memories shared with this precious couple.
