I am not a big fan of Mondays. My body and mind are still in weekend mode and it is tough to drag myself out from under the covers at 04:30 to start a new week.
Yet, this Monday was so much easier to face. The alarm went off and I reached over to shut it off, and I smiled.
It is so nice to start the week with the words of my L’il Trooper still so fresh in my mind.
Thank you son for your strength, your wit and your humor! We love you very much. (However, not enough to pretend that the Lions have a chance in Hades of beating the Chargers on the 16th of December.) Sorry, it just is NOT GOING TO HAPPEN!!! We look forward to watching the playoffs together! We are keeping our fingers, toes, and eyes crossed that you will be home with us for at least a few games. In the meantime we will be sure to eat plenty of wings and chips and dip for you. (and we will cheer for the Lions until they come to San Diego) Be Safe…. We miss and love you WAY much!
