Just Glad To Be There


Just got home from watching our home town high school Cougars play some football. They ended up losing in the fourth quarter, but I was just glad to be there. Had the honor of walking out on the field with my next to oldest son for senior night. This is his last year to march with the Band of Blue. I know one day I will miss these moments. 

I’m hurting pretty bad from sitting in the handicap section. However, I’m just glad I was able to sit period and take in the Friday night lights. You really don’t know what you got until it’s gone. Then, we had to wait an extra twenty minutes for my fifteen year old to come to the car. The old me would’ve gotten very mad and impatient. The new me said “well he is having a great time and you’re only that age once.”

Yep, sometimes you just gotta thank God for the opportunity in front of you. What we sometimes dread others would give anything to just be able to do. God is really working on me about having the right perspective. This comes at a time when everything feels more difficult and challenging. So, after a long night I was just glad I could be there. To take in a moment that won’t come again.

“Make the most of every opportunity in these evil days.” (Ephesians 5:16)
