Last Thursday the youngest grand daughter signed a letter of intent to run track at Southern Arkansas University.
She competes in high jump for the back to back state champion high school track team. They could win number three this spring. Our girl has been a conference champion high jumper and second in state. A few weeks ago she competed in her first indoor meet of the season and cleared the bar at 5′-5″. That feat made her the 49th best high school jumper in the nation! It also ranked her as the 25th best senior jumper in the country.
It was an Awe…some day for the family. Yes, I will be at all of her track meets this spring and there will be photos coming.
Monday’s Music Moves Me
December was my last entry in the 4M meme. As you can see, I am experimenting with a new look to this blog. I don’t know if I will settle on this theme or try another sometime soon. Let me know what you think. Okay on with the music. I have been riding my recumbent eliptical recently to regain strength and stamina after a major surgery, but that is a story for another day. At any rate, I ride thirty minutes a day so I put my headphones on, fire up Spotify and go to my playlists. Recently there have been a song that has caught my attention once again and it comes from Randy Travis.
Since I missed the official Valentine Theme week, I will jump in with an offering today. This May my wife and I will celebrate our 46th wedding anniversary. One thing that I have come to realize is that my life would be totally incomplete without her. Almost everything that I am or good that I have done is due to her presence in my life. The song that seems to best express this sentiment is, “If I didn’t have you.”
