“I've been living on hope the last three years I'd be able to play again, but my body is just telling me it's not going to happen. I played almost 600 games and wanted to play another 600 more. When I think of all the memories I could have had if I kept playing, it's a little tough. But I'm thankful for the time I did have and all the memories. There were a lot of great ones in Colorado, that's for sure.”
“Another fresh new year is here . . .
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest . . .
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”
“Those what (if's) in your head, they never tell the THRUTH! All they want is to bound you down, to hold you still from taking a stand and achieving your greatest potential! But the true and reality of the matter is that those what (if's) won't say, is that you can do it, it's possible, take that leap of FAITH, you will succeed!...”
