Just wanted to wish each Student Athlete and their Families and very Happy Thanksgiving and day together, free from distractions and attractions, other than the presence of each Family member helping Mom in the kitchen either before or after your sit down celebration...

There is sooooooooooo much for each of us to be thankful for today and actually everyday, really, but we sometimes get waylaid by the events of normal daily living: late getting ready for school, how we look, tests pending, hungry ('cause we were late and didn't eat breakfast), need gas in the car BEFORE going to school, forgot something, didn't finish paper night before, wondering if we're going to practice hard today, forgot my shoes and gear, have a Drs. appointment, etc...

Sound familiar? Okay, so back to Mom again and 'what' YOU can do today to help Mom out: ASK!! It might even be the DISHES!! Whoa! I know that's something that you really don't want to "offer" to do, but guess what, DO IT!!

Then, take the time to sit down and write on a piece of paper what this day means to you and how much you enjoy all the work that Mom puts into the special day, and share it with your Mom...Think about it: it's the ONLY DAY that Mom and can really delve into making all those special delights from the Turkey to her special dressing and gravy, along with the vegetables and of course the homemade desserts...Wow!! So, take a moment to reflect about what your Mom puts into this special day for HER FAMILY and especially for each your siblings, Dad and perhaps another friend, Family who are joining the Day...I know, I know, Dad usually has the TV on getting ready for the Packers/Lions football game, but YOU can smell the Epicurian delights emitting from the kitchen, and visualizing how it's all going to come out on one table for all to enjoy...Now, if you are "distracted" by the temptation of the internet: Facebook, music videos, You Tube, texting and just isolating yourself, shame on YOU!! Get with it!! BE THANKFUL to your Mom and Dad, share it with them with a note OR at the table with a simple: "I am so thankful for the support I continue to receive for school and sports in my life right now from all of you, I am really thankful for that, and this day REMINDS me to do just that: BE THANKFUL for the love and support all ways...

 

Parents: thank you for your continued support and kind words with our training program that we hope is developing the necessary leadership skills and basketball disciplines that will always reflect the values and sportsmanship that your Family believes in life and competitions, respectively...I wish ALL MOMS a Happy Thanksgiving today, that the moment you sit down and embrace the vision of your Family sitting together, no phones ringing, no tv distractions, just you and the wonderful miracle of life blessing you daily at this moment, especially, Happy Thanksgiving..and I wish all DADS a Happy Thanksgiving as well, one that they know their hard work, provisions and sacrifices make this day of "reflections" possible to enjoy and memorable...Happy Thanksgiving...

 

To our Student Athletes: thanks for giving your Best Effort each and every time out during our training sessions, we know how much each of you wish to be successful off the court and on the court, and that experience is really a reflection by you at the end of each season, an experience that no one else can relate to, remember that, and now, here on Thanksgiving, we have another "reflection" of sorts, one that precedes our high school season which is about to commence, and for those who are already engaged in competitions, look upon your Mom and Dad, sister(s) and brother(s), and realize how much you've GROWN emotionally, physically and spiritually, all elements that make you thankful for their love and support...Happy Thanksgiving to you as well!!

As I said earlier, we have NO TRAINING this weekend...but will regroup the following weekend...have a wonderful weekend, seize the love, celebrate your Family...

God Bless,
