Susan sent me the link to this video yesterday. After school, I sat at my computer to watch it. I had chills. I love the way it begins because the coach is telling his players exactly what I try to tell my students. When he says "I would give anything tonight to jump into one of these uniforms with you guys", I know what he means. Even though I have no real desire to relive my teenage years, there are many times when I would give anything to be able to sit in one of those desks at Oakman High School one more time. I would give anything to know then how quickly life would go by. I would love to go back so I could focus on TODAY. I try so hard today to do just that. I try to enjoy the moments I have, whether they seem important or not.
Today I showed the coach's speech to my students. I wanted them to hear someone else say the same thing that I tried to say to them on Monday. Now I want to share it with you. Take a few minutes to watch this video. Make sure you watch it all the way to the end, though. Even if you aren't a Bama fan, you have to appreciate it.
Have a GREAT day! Enjoy your TODAY.
