Sweet Determination

I know you have to be determined in life to obtain the things you want and realize your dreams. You have to work hard and set goals for yourselves. Some people are more determined than others. However, the main thing is that you’re happy in whatever you do.

This morning we were watching our youngest grandson, Evan. He just turned seven months old this week. His smile can make your heart melt and despite his young age, he is so full of determination. He loves to watch his big brother and sister play, but I believe he thinks if he can walk, they will let him join in in their games.

We were holding his hands so he could stand and walk with us this morning. He confidently places one foot in front of the other with a huge smile on his face. At times it is almost as though he is saying, “Nana and Pop Pop, I don’t need you to hold my hands, I can do this!” I truly believe he will be walking before he crawls. I believe he thinks so too!

How awesome it would be if we had no fears or worries like a baby and just went for the things we wanted. They don’t worry whether or not they will fail, they just do it. If they succeed that’s great, but if they don’t they will get up and keep on trying.

The next time I think about giving up on something, I’m going to think about the determination our grandchildren have to get the things they want. It will give me motivation to keep on trying. I hope it will do the same for you.

My husband and I have been season ticket holders for Rutgers University Football and Basketball for more than twenty years now.

In all these years we have witnessed many wins and losses. We have seen many changes in coaching staff. We have seen good seasons and not such good seasons.

We took our sons to games. We’ve taken our grandchildren to games. It has always been a great atmosphere for them to be a part of. Tonight my husband and I along with our cousins witnessed one of the best games we’ve ever seen at a Rutgers men’s basketball game! They beat Wisconsin who are ranked number four in the country.

The atmosphere was wonderful. There were several hundred Wisconsin fans there which made it even more exciting. We all cheered and screamed for our teams as the clock ran down, and the score was close enough that it could go either way. Somehow we held on!

The team played as a team. They pulled strength from each other to get the job done. They showed so much heart tonight. They should be very proud. Their coaches should be very proud. I know the fans are proud.

You have to believe. Good things will come if you do!
