I hope you enjoy Episode 5 Are you thankful for what you have?
Join my team!
I look forward to watching the NFL draft every year. Why? Because you get to see their dreams come true as it happens. The emotions they go through as they get the phone call from the NFL team that is selecting them. You see the emotions of the families that are there with them. Watching the draft makes me grateful for my life. Are you thankful for what you have?
Be Grateful For All
What you don’t see is the countless hours in the weight room. The infinite number of sprints they have run, or the endless hours they spent studying in the classroom. What you don’t see is the countless miles the families put on their cars driving their kids to practice, games, or camps. You don’t see the time the families might’ve had to put in working a second job to pay for equipment or fees. The families do all this to help their children to achieve their dreams.
For most of these young men, the dream started when they were a child while they were lying in bed. They held onto the dream probably through many ups and downs, successes, and failures.
A vast majority of the men selected today will feel humbled, honored, and gracious when they hear their name called by the Commissioner. It is a pleasure to see them when they speak give thanks to God, their family, their coaches and everyone who ever help them achieve this dream.
Unfortunately, there are usually one or two who expected to be drafted earlier than they were and are unhappy. When you see them on camera they have a scowl on their face and you can tell that they are angry. Now I’m sure that they think that they are the best player and feel slighted that so many teams passed them up, I can understand that. What I cannot understand is how they cannot fill gracious enough to put the other feelings aside. I’ve heard it said that less than one percent of all boys playing high school football will make it to the NFL. Just to have the talent to be in that small pool should make you one of the most thankful people alive.
Are you grateful for what you have been given? Do you give thanks every day? If not, today is a great day to start!
