(Yes, Mom came, too.)
It was quite a day for all of us.
Our eldest ran one of his races
in pouring rain… Mom & I took cover
in the car, but my Dad & younger son
got drenched cheering him on.
Both boys advanced to Regionals that day,
but they also witnessed a side of
their already fun-loving, truth-telling
Grandpa T. … an emerging – coming alive.
He’s shared his love for these young men from afar for several years due to living over 1,000 miles apart.
He’s shared his love for athletics & the training process as long as any of us can remember.
But, that day… these two loves
converged on a rainy SWFL track.
– Pride & Joy Personified –
And none of us will ever be the same.
Living & Legacy.
(Thanks to fb for sharing these
timely memories this week.)
