Share the JOY Thursday

What brought us JOY this week.
We are in good health, comparatively, and the biggest JOY of our lives is the family activities going on.

Big family fish-fry on the lake at my bother's home coming up.

As folks who read my blog know it is football time for us.

Grandson Ben

 4th grade trophy winner.
Age 10
Been playing continuously ever since.

We have been watching him play all those years too.
Seeing him growing and becoming a wonderful young man.
A good student and wonderful to be with.

This year is his senior year in high school.
Scholarships in the future.

A new sports program on local radio asked our Ben to be their first high school athlete interview.

Last night we listened with pride as our Ben spoke to the interviewer in crisp decisive responses to the questions.
He was perfect.
No uhs, ers, you knows, you know what I means.

A real credit to his family, school and community.

 Ben with his game face on.
Not his usual grin from ear to ear that we know and love so much.

Everytime he runs onto the field our hearts swell with such JOY and pride in him and his Dad and Mom.
Showed his stuff this past weekend.
Ran oodles of yards and 2 TDs.

He will be 18 one month from today.

We always say a prayer too when the team runs out on the field.

In fact the entire team prays in the huddle. 

Of course they can't tell anyone that.

The coach says

"It's not me, it is their idea."

Thank goodness. 

Go here to share the JOY with Meri

What a wonderful young man you claim as your grand! He's a credit to himself and his parents to be so articulate, hardworking, and motivated. Blessings, Peggy!
