Reason to Win

Coleman and I on a lunch date at Jason's Deli after a recent eye Dr appointment. 

This morning as we were rushing to get ready for school,  my cute little sports nut boy wanted to show me something on the Ipad.  I could see he was on the ESPN app (of course) and I really wasn't too interested in a players latest stats at that busy moment...

I started to tell him no, saying we did not have time for that right now, but he pleaded that it was really neat and would only take a minute, so I relented.  Sometimes I can't resist that boy:)

I am so glad that I took a few minutes to watch this with him.. 

A couple of phrases from the video keep running through my head this morning...

"The only disability in life...is a bad attitude."


"Life can be conquered with the right outlook...and I promise everything else will fall into place"

I think I just found some new quotes for our inspiration board:)

Thank you Coleman --what a great way to start the day!

The video wouldn't play for me. Boo. I love that Coleman found it though. Maybe I'll look it up later on the internet. (:
