Observe It In Us

Observe It In Us 

       What do others observe in us? As adults, as parents, as spouses, and as athletes we are all examples. Last week in Monkey See Monkey Do we talked about the importance of being an example and in choosing and having examples for us to follow.

       All of us, all the time, everywhere we go, and in all we do, we are examples. It is either good or it is bad, but what we do is always an example for someone. So, what do others observe in us?

       This past week as part of our Safe Sober Prom Night program we had former Chicago Bears running back, Curtis Gentry ,join us. Mr. Gentry contacted us to volunteer and be part of the program. Strictly as a volunteer and part of the circle of encouragement and support you may see Mr. Gentry with us at some local schools.

      Quite frankly, I was blown away by Mr. Gentry. No, not by who he is, but by the way he cares about others, and specifically our young people at the high school. He greeted them all with an incredibly engaging smile and genuine interest, and encouraged and urged them to high standards. Although it’s been more than 40 years since he played in the NFL he is still solid as a rock and is an “athlete.” Wow, what an example he was to me.

      As we observe it in others let others also observe it in us. This is a big week for the Safe Sober Prom Night program with a lot of schools, and a total of approximately 20 appearances for our Daggett Shuler team. What a great opportunity to see and be examples!

Observe it,


P.S. Please join the army of support by “liking”
