I wanted to share some thoughts I posted yesterday on my Facebook page.
Driving to church this morning, I found myself thinking about last night’s game – AND BAWLING!
1. I was very tired.
2. I was thrilled with the outcome.
But more than anything:
3. Games like that, verses Canada, take me back to all the wonderful memories of college & dear friends that I am so incredibly grateful for.
While we had (have) a good natured rivalry, and I (15 years ago) had to give a nod to their 2 gold medal wins during my graduation speech, it’s mostly about friendship to me. Sibling love. Our closest ally.
From living there when 9-11 happened (and the fear of being stuck outside of your homeland when the borders closed) to the Salt Lake games or grieving the tragedy of the Space Shuttle Columbia disaster, there’s no other Country and friend I want on my side more.
To the True North, see you in Beijing 2022 ❤️
