It was first dated towards the end of September 2011. Part of a “Quote of the Day” email sent to the troops.
A perfectly descriptive phrase.
An expression coined by someone out in Cardinal Nation to reflect the blessings-a-plenty we all experienced for those two days.
“A weekend full of awesome.” *
Considering all that is right with our world these days, that thought someone shared several years ago applies perfectly to this moment.
Grade school friends playing in one last high school All-Star Game together.
A young lady that absolutely lives to ski gets a home performance.
A young man – and his band mates – gets to play before a home crowd.
A community wide get together – beginning with a parade and full marching bands.
Little ones playing in All-Star games on the little diamonds.
Big ones playing in All-Star games on the big field.
And the cherry on top?
No other way to describe it other than:
A weekend chock full of awesome.
*(I sure would like to know who said it -“a weekend full of awesome” – you need to get an “atta boy/girl” for the ideal description of that early fall weekend – and so many other times in our lives. You might want to take a page out of Rick Reilly’s play book and put a trademark on that one – as long as I can put to use once in a while.)
