Perseverance

Jay and his shark tooth.
Our grandson Jay has been named the best defensive player of the week for two weeks in a row on his high school football team.  He is a junior and has just recently been made the starting middle linebacker.
We are, of course, very proud of how well he is playing, but are even prouder of how humbly he is handling his success as well as all the hard work, without much playing time to show for it, he had put in during his freshman and sophomore years, preparing for this opportunity.
Good work, Jay.  We are very happy for you and proud of your perseverance.

    I wish we lived close enough to go see him play (now that I’m learning a little about football). Maybe he’ll play for the Colts someday, and we can say we knew him “when…” Wishing him continued success, not only in football but in all of life. Perseverance pays off.

    Hilary — Thank you!

    Dave — Yes, it is fun to see them achieve. We kind of live vicariously through them, don’t we? :)

    Linda — Oh, I so wish we all lived closer. I can see us all going to his games and yelling until we were hoarse. :)
