One Special Day

Today was a "special" day.  I spent it with my family and with some special people.

We had the Special Olympics in our hometown today.  We not only braved the heat, so did the athletes, giving all they had--all they had practiced for--for this special day.

Let my camera tell the story...

In life, there are ups...


and there are downs...


and there are even twists upside down...



But the key is to never give up...


until you pass the finish line...


Then when you do, celebrate...


Even if it's with a buddy...


Or two...


And even if you need to scream...


Or you need to dance...


Relish the moment, then take it home in your heart with your loved one...


And on behalf of all of your loved ones out there, Special Ones, we will keep on celebrating for you...

  2. Very cool post! Kevin's cousin Mason is the one pictured in your post in the hat and glasses with a medal. He did great. They all did!

  3. I don't know what's better - seeing folks give 110% - or hanging out with folks that 'get it' - it's a day of winning which ever!

    great post - absolutely brilliant!
