Love and Support

Did you really believe there was a threat?  Perhaps were you sending a message?  Were you trying to make a point?  Your laughing and smirking, and videotaping of our fans (concerned moms, mind you) tells me that you were.  Now, you want a cookie for sending the armed guard home?  Message received, loud and clear.

Then, we noticed three men in attendance.  Two in Connellsville blue shirts and an armed guard. 

Know Who You Are

Who are you?  What are your fears about you?  Do you run from them?  Do you own them?  I’m not saying that you don’t strive to be better but rather realize that you are a work in progress.

“Be kind.  Everyone you meet today is battling something.”

Know Who You Are

Challenging Myself

I learned how to golf when I was 12.  I started playing volleyball at the age of 14.  I didn't learn how to play tennis until high school.  Those are the last things (activities) that I have learned how to do.  Nothing new or challenging since then.  That is, until...
