The Olympic games have started, and over the next couple of weeks, I will watch more TV than I will for the entire rest of the year. Every four years, I marvel over the Olympic athletes’ stories and performances; it’s amazing really. I want to share a commercial that gets me every time! Every time, I tell you! I mean tears. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
This reminds me most of my parents, with their dedication through the years to me and my sports. Before morning practices, my mother would wake me up early and send me off with something warm in my hand to eat and two water bottles, one filled with milk. They would drive me all over the state so I could play in tournaments or attend camps. I don’t know how they did it, but I hope to do half as well with my children. Thank you Mom and Dad. I’m sorry I wasn’t an Olympic athlete, but your efforts did not go unnoticed.
See. Tears. Again.
