Lead by example and let them follow. Before long, they’ll surprise even you.
After an exceptionally windy night, the sidewalks and streets have been littered by these little balls. Beware! They’ll quickly put an end to a good run.
You may remember that our house alarm likes to notify the entire neighborhood anytime my house fills with smoke. It also notifies the alarm company who in turn calls me to inquire on the status of my house.
So tonight, while cooking dinner, Bill from my alarm company called to see what was going on in my neck of the woods. I’m not sure why, but he wasn’t all that keen on accepting my invite for dinner. I honestly don’t know why he wasn’t interested; I told him it was smokin’ hot.
I found myself on the wrong side of enemy lines with a mother from YaYa’s team. Unable to capture a good picture of the game, I turned my camera to the scoreboard for the daily photo. My action lead to a discussion on blogging. The other mother, whom I am only now getting to know, recently decided to start a blog. Her goal in doing so was to sift through the negative thoughts that have been clouding her world in the past year and find her more positive side.
While the crowd surrounding us made a few not-so-nice comments regarding our team, we talked further on this topic. And the game went on…
The ball was flying through the air, kids were racing up and down the court, and everyone was holding their breath. Time was running out and the score was within a shot of a win (or loss).
In less than a minute we’d know but, until then, we’d continue to hold our enthusiasm in reserve.
