Today I Turned 50: Perspective and the Greatest Gifts!
Today is my 50th. I’ve been thinking about this milestone for some time and realize that I am so fortunate to have a great wife and two wonderful kids (who had the good sense and grades to go to UGA)! All material things mean nothing w/o good health and relationships with your family and friends – in this sense I am a very wealthy man.
UGA Football, and Athens in general, has brought my family even closer together. We now have this common bond and love to share forever. My wife actually loves watching the Dawgs play – that’s the only football she will watch. We hope to someday retire to Athens and this couldn’t make my kids any happier because no matter where they ultimately decide to live, they’ll always want to come back to Athens.
My buddy and I will be heading to Athens for the ND game – that and a Natty this year are the only (more material) gifts I really wanted. Earlier this week some good friends that I used to work with took me out for a great steak dinner in NYC and surprised me with a Georgia Football Helmet signed by Hines Ward! (Pic below). Such a cool and thoughtful gift that I thought Dawgnation would appreciate - they know I love the Dawgs and am a life-long Steelers fan. (Btw, for another thread HW should’ve been a first-ballot NFL HOF’er given his blocking and receiving prowess!).
Sorry this post has dragged on for almost 50 years, but I wanted to share. We all often need (me for sure) reminders of what’s really important: family and friends and UGA Football. Go Dawgs!
