We all need words of encouragement. Do you remember when you learned to hit a baseball? I do but I don't. I have had so many hits that have rolled less than a foot that I can't remember if they were my first hit or my last hit. That is the problem with getting older. The great thing is that I only remember what I want to remember. If someone is trying to give me a rough time. Example- Hey Dad, remember the time that you cooked an egg and it exploded on the ceiling? Nope, don't remember that one. Seriously, I do remember that one. I was busy playing Intellivision with my son Jeremy. Probably Donkey Kong. The game got exciting and Kaboom. Clean it up quickly and get rid of the evidence. Today I was helping a buddy with his songwriting. I encouraged him because I could see the talent but also because I remember when I have been encouraged. It is like pouring gas on a fire. Words of encouragement. Let me burn.
