It seems at times that there is an over abundance of negativity around us. Athletes can sometimes get a bad wrap and their negative issues seem to stay in the spotlight more than the positive. However, I ended up in this profession because of all of the good and amazing energy that athletes, sports and it's competition bring. The athletes I have spent time with have giant hearts. There are times that the possitive, dynamic energy is over whelming and I completely love it.
As most people know, I have had to rearrange my schedule so that I can be available to my three children. Its my turn to teach them to be the light, to let their hearts grow and be possitive role models regardless of the setting. The last few weeks have been stressful with my youngest in the hospital. He has septo-optic dysplasia that comes with complications of vision and the pitutary gland. So sometimes getting a little sick can send us spiraling. We have spent the last two weeks in the PICU and one week ago we were life flighted to Denver. Denver is 6 hours from where my family and I live as we are from Wyoming. A large majority of our family is in Minnesota, so during this time we did not have visitors.
However, on our last day in Denver we did get some visitors! The Colorado Avalanch NHL hockey team came to the hospital to wish the children there well. The team brought good spirits and spread early Christmas cheer. The energy on the floor had completely changed with their presents. The kiddos were so excited to see and meet the team. My little guy really doesn't know much about hockey just yet, but was happy that instead of getting poked he got a toy! Of course his momma was excited to say "Hi" to some fun visitors.
Remember that not only during this season of giving, but all year, to share the light. Share your smile with someone else that might need it. It really doesn't take much to be a possitive. Always be the change you wish to see, especially in a day where we don't have to look hard for negativity and hatred. Thank you so much to the Colorado Avalanch for brightening up our day! We really appreciated it
