Dude Time Doodles is having an Inspiration Challenge - and as the Guest Designer for this month, I get to participate! But you can participate too. You have 2 weeks to link your entry for this challenge. Be sure and stop by today and check out Dude Time Doodles.
When I saw this picture for the inspiration - I saw BLUE!!! And when I think of blue AND this cute little Youth Football image from Bonibleaux Designs, I think of my son, David. (Yep, get ready for a story here!)
When my son, David, was a Freshman in high school, he decided to play football. David was at least a head shorter than all of his classmates. I mean REALLY short. He looked EXACTLY like this in his Hondo High School football uniform. The bottom of his jersey came down past his knees (it was the smallest jersey they had)! Of course he never got to play and was just the best bench-warmer ever - but he dearly LOVED football. He finished his Freshman and Soph. years and was still short (and SLOW) and still warming the bench. When he was a Junior, they let him play about six minutes - for the entire year!! Still he loved being on the team. His Senior year they changed coaches and put David on defense. Even though that jersey still just hung on him, he was GOOD at his position - and went on to make All District, Player of the Week, etc........He was an inspiration to the entire team and the younger players since he was so small. His heart was into the game and it finally paid off for him. David is a grown man now and an attorney in Dallas (of course he's still my baby - and yes, still pretty short)! This Inspiration reminded me of the blue and white of HHS and the inspiration my son was for so many young boys.
