Thankful for WITA, Underdogs, and a Sunrise Worth Stopping For

Day 2,216


Becky is going to kill me for this one 😉 In a moment of frustration over minutia that didn’t seem to matter a four letter acronym crossed my mind. WITA. What is this about. Rather than close my brain I paused, asked myself “what is this about,” and the stepped back to see the bigger picture more clearly. Very quickly the answer appeared and I was able to transform frustration into growth.

One simple four letter acronym to pause and gain perspective.


Dominic and Gavin’s team is a big underdog for tomorrow. They’re the 8 seed playing against the 1. What I’m thankful for is the fact that they seem to be almost relishing the underdog role. Earlier in the season I saw some if the same sparkle in Dominic’s eyes and they went out and tied one of the Top 5 teams in the state in their division. It will be fun to see what happens.

Win or lose, what I’m most thankful for today is the chip on Dominic’s shoulder, his willingness to prove someone wrong. Rather than getting negative he seems to rise when he is told he can’t do something. That attitude will take him everywhere in life!


Today I pulled over for the sunrise.

I glanced to my right and saw a dazzling orange sky. Yup, I’m going to enjoy this for a moment. Next thing I knew I was on a side road snapping a few pics and just taking it all in. Magnificent.
