I heard a lot of the kids go to the park after school. Did you know that?
Did you know that?
Yeah, I know.
So, do you want to go?
Are you sure?
It might be good time.

I think it’s possible that the greatest gift one person can give to another is to accept the other person for who they are.
I think one of the greatest responsibilities a parent has is helping his/her child become the best version of him/herself.

The Oklahoma City Thunder had the game in hand. As the clock wound down on this NBA game and series, the focus was on the San Antonio Spurs and more specifically, veteran power forward, Tim Duncan. The announcers were talking about Tim Duncan more than the actual game.
The announcers were speculating that the game could be Tim Duncan’s last. He has had a long successful career and is considered one of the game’s greats. In addition, Tim’s team has won multiple championships.
Tim Duncan exudes dignity, plays with great heart, and shows humility. However, one thing that is especially unique about Tim Duncan is the respect with which he is held. The announcers mentioned the word respect multiple times. Clearly, that is his defining trait.
It made me wonder. When I ‘retire’ someday, what will I be noted for? What do I want to be known for?
The camp brochures are spread out on the coffee table. It’s decision day – no more delays or procrastinating.
It shouldn’t be a big deal – should it? Just pick a camp and off the child goes with the arrival of summer.
So, why have we been talking about this for the past few months?
