Loyal Friends

The tiles shown were shipped today to Fayetteville, Arkansas. These are ordered each year by a sweet friend I worked with many years ago while he coached at Louisiana-Lafayette then The University of Arkansas, and is now a high school coach in the Fayetteville area. These are personalized with names and numbers and will be given to his Senior athletes during their Spring Athletic Banquet.

When he placed his order he told me the parents have really enjoyed their daughters' receiving these in years past, so he wanted to keep the tradition going.

Whatever the sport, it is 'all about going home', isn't it?

I had the great opportunity to work with many fine college softball coaches years ago, who I continue to stay in touch with even though we don't see one another quite as often as we once did. They are always close at heart and have been incredible loving and loyal friends through many good years and some rough & tough years.

I miss them all and hope to see one of these dear friends later this week! Needless to say I am VERY excited to have the opportunity to travel to watch her team play. And hopefully amongst all of the coaching she'll be required to do we'll have some catch-up "FRIEND" moments while we're there!

As the 2009 season winds down I want to take this opportunity to wish all of you the very best of luck for the remainder of the season and please know I miss working with all of you very much!
Thanks for being wonderful, loyal and loving friends,
Matthew 21:22
