Wow! What excitement this week with the Winter Olympics and finally, something worthwhile to watch on TV. I was thrilled with the opening ceremony as I hope you all were. You weren’t watching? Why? I have to admit I am not usually a sports fan but during the last few years, I have really enjoyed the Winter and Summer Olympics. I have my favorites, including Apolo Ohno who won a silver medal, Hannah Kearney who won gold, and the pairs figure skating. Love the design of the medals also.
Although I normally root for the U. S. teams, my heart thrilled when Alexandre Bilodeau won the Olympic gold for the men’s moguls freestyle skiing, the first medal won by a Canadian on Canadian soil. Over twenty years I have traveled a great deal in the Provinces and Territories of Canada. It is a beautiful, friendly country. I was also thrilled watching the men’s downhill racing. Maybe I just like speed! As a mother, I also liked Alexandre when he immediately went over and gave his big brother a bear hug. Big brother has MS and Alexandre says his brother has been a major inspiration in his life.
We so often see, read, and hear so much bad stuff about our youth. It is wonderful to hear about the good ones, there are a lot of them out there.
God Bless until next time.
