#spiritsays: When asked what to bring, mom said “Bring your best self,” and low and behold they did.
#spiritsays: You said, “Let’s give them something to squawk about” and then you did. Feeling triumphant and sporting a perpetually silly grin, you know there is a reason to celebrate. Bravo for bringing it this year!
#spiritsays: You race not against others, but for yourself.
#spiritsays: Neither Maggie or Matt wanted to be anyone other than who they were, the stripped down version of their best selves, in tune with the world and each other. No holes in their thinking.
#spiritsays: Their mittens long ago lost, your brothers prefer to stay inside where it’s warm, their Xbox playing paws and twitching tails the only thing moving on the couch. A fire in your belly for more genuine stuff, you bundle your best self, closing your eyes to do one final gut check before you launch. Now you see what we see, you’re made of the right stuff baby.
