You make wishes come true when you grow towards the outcome you seek.
James and I had this talk on the way to football practice yesterday. The boy was so frustrated because he wants to be a quarterback, but he's smaller and doesn't stand out in the crowd the way a few of his classmates do. Then, during a water break at practice, I saw him walk up to the coaches by himself and start talking. I had to leave, but Rick was there by then and watched the rest of practice... and James got to be one of the quarterbacks during the hand-off drills. It sure took a lot of guts for a quiet ten year old to ask for a chance. He may not get to play the position he wants every time, but I think his gumption will be remembered :)
You have an amazing young man there! :)
