Worth everything

Can I just say that hearing the excitement and the joy in an 11 year old's voice over the phone, after he has just spent 4 hours with just his dad watching his hero win the last race he'll ever get to see him race in, and hearing him say 'This night was the best night of my life" and "This is the best motocross race I've ever been too" is worth everything I had to give up and set aside and sacrifice? And I would do it all again, in a heartbeat, without batting an eye.

And knowing Dad has some pretty cool memories of that night too? Yeah, that's icing on the cake.

Thanks for stopping by my place! Yes... it's always neat to find another blogger with older kids and not babies and toddlers.

(Although I'd have two more of them too if I could only talk Coffeehusband into it! Hee hee).

The Mayor went to his first ever hockey game this weekend and his reaction was about the same. It makes your heart swell for them to be so excited!!

Jeremy whats his name?

I get that excited still when going to see a live, awesome sporting event, and my dad and I still have memories about the games we saw in HS that were special because of a miracle comeback or great play
