‘I’ve got nothing. I can’t think of anything to say.’
I’ve heard that a lot in the past few weeks and again today. Guess what? I totally get it…and I totally respect it. Guess what else? We deeply respect and appreciate any thought or action including many who don’t know what to say.
What is there to say? Ingrid asked me how I was doing today. Good and sad was my answer. It was a good day…but losing Chris has left a hole that is so large it will simply be impossible to fill in this lifetime. That being said, so many awesome things are happening. I’m hearing stories (facebook, email, phone calls, in person) about people Being The Best. It is awesome. The Chris Friesen-Be The Best lacrosse sticks are amazing! (reminder: orders close this Sunday). I got a call this week from Team BC, the Provincial lacrosse team. The U16 and U19 teams will be wearing a CF on their jerseys at the Canadian Nationals this Labour Day in Saskatoon! How cool is that?
These are the things that keep us moving forward. Not just the remembrance stuff, but the knowledge that Chris touched so many lives and has inspired so many. And don’t forget, Be The Best doesn’t mean winning all the time. Max and I were watching Steve Nash and the Suns lose to the Lakers in a heartbreaker tonight. Yah, they lost, but Steve Nash was the best. He was incredible. That’s what it is all about. Breaking your own records, setting the bar higher and HELPING PEOPLE along the way. Life is a team game!
Go rock your Friday.
