I'M RIGHT HERE.......
Hello my friends.......I received an e-mail today asking where have I been. I have been home watching the Olympics and loving every moment of it.
I love watching these young people compete. You all know I am Canadian and yes I am cheering for Canadians but I am also cheering for everyone of these competitors. They are all inspirational......to think they have practiced thousands of hours to perfect their skills. Their parents and siblings have sacrificed their time, money and themselves so their talented child could find their true potential. Their discipline and hard work can be wiped out in sixty seconds yet they will risk everything to be the best they can be. I am in awe as I watch them, their hair blowing in the wind and cheeks flushed with excitement. I love them and cheer for them all. Nationality doesn't matter to me, nor does the language they speak. I do not need to know their language to understand everything they are thinking and saying as they perform. It is all on their faces, their actions and re-actions says it all.
I guess you can tell I love the Olympics, always have. I am so thankful that I have the opportunity to watch these games in a warm home with good food and treats as close as my kitchen. For a few hours a day I get to live vicariously through these athletes and live their stories. I so believe in them and wish them their best performances ever. This is their time to excel and my time to enjoy.
Good Night my friends, God Bless........and many, many hugs....:-)
