We thought about tonight many times.
The dinner we would have at the Keg.
The first official beer together.
The waiter doing the obligatory id check.
The laughs we would have.
Tonight I’m not laughing.
If you ever have a problem that you think you can’t face, you can.
If you ever have a mountain you think you can’t climb, you can.
If you ever think that getting mad at yourself solves a problem for others, it doesn’t.
I wasn’t planning on being this direct tonight, but after spending a bunch of time thinking about it and at Chris’ wall, this is the only place to go.
If you are needing help………..REACH OUT!
If you are in pain….TELL SOMEONE.
If life’s issues have you overwhelmed, PLEASE let someone know.
What can appear as a solution, is a complete lie….a complete and total lie.
I’ve had many (young people especially) let me know how the BE THE BEST theme helped them overcome and persevere.
I would encourage anyone reading this tonight to keep believing.
And yah, that goes for the writer too.
Chris…we love you so terribly much.
How I wish I could share a beer and prime rib dinner with you tonight.
