This week’s topic is a hard one for me since I’m not much of a hero-worshiper. I’m probably too inclined to see people’s flaws.
But I did come up with one guy who’s lived a pretty heroic life.
Perseverance, Sacrifice, Joy
None of my family and friends want to be featured in my blogs or Facebook posts, so he shall remain unnamed.
His heroic life includes losing his young wife to breast cancer and raising four very small children on his own while working full time as a banker. As a father, he’s stayed true to his kids and his commitment through good times and bad.
He’s always had a passion for sports. Where I live, most people stop supporting the high schools after their own kids graduate. Not him. He still attends high school football and basketball games–when his work allows for it.
Our friend sees every local Angels’ baseball game because he works as an usher at the stadium. He also sees some of the other events–concerts and mega-truck spectacles. He never talks about quitting, but God knows, we have a couple people in our circle who ask him all the time when he’s going to quit.
Because, did I say? He just turned ninety.
His zest for life is ageless, and that I find inspiring.
