to enjoy a lovely day of bike riding with the family
because it doesn't take a mathematician to figure out that...
4 kids + 4 parents + sunny holiday in Southern CA = family bike day!
We started on one side of the park and
and when we reached the other side we stopped for
and snacks packed for us by their littlest one
The sun was smiling
and as we rested under a shady tree to chat
my son took off his sweatshirt
allowing us to notice that he had sweat into...
the shape of a heart??
I had to look twice
and take the picture just to be sure because
I didn't even know that it was possible to sweat into the shape of a heart
and wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it with my own eyes...
But a few days later...
during the end-of-school awards ceremony
I listened as they called that heart-shaped sweating boy's name for...
(the Gold Award for straight A's)
the Christian Character Award
(for the 6th year in a row!)
I am grateful that in whatever it relates to...
he is willing to give his best
put in his all
sweat his heart out
wants to succeed
likes to win
is striving to hear "well done"
which is why
at the beginning
and all day, every day
This kid's got heart!
