Maze-ing Maze 239

Maze-ing Maze 239

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." Aristotle

Maze 239: I was pleased to find out yesterday that my son was the player of the week for his association in hockey.  He got the hardest worker award for his team 3 times this season, with 2 in the past three games.  He had two goals, one a short-handed tally (he leads the league in shorthanded goals with two)  in his game over the weekend helping him win the player of the week.  It makes me proud to see that all the work he did this past year to prepare for hockey panned out. 

Although its his first season he has improved by the practice and definitely doesn’t look like a rookie.  As a first year player, playing with a majority of kids who’ve played for three seasons or more he stands out as one of the better players.  

After watching him this past season and how hard he worked this past summer  a during the season.  I admire what he’s been able to accomplish in such a short time in such a difficult sport. I have to admit many times when I can’t find inspiration on my own my sons have been a great source/example of what action can accomplish in one’s life.  Being able to maintain good grades, practice/play hockey 3-4 times a week and run a trash disposal business I can truly say his efforts are inspiring!

  1. What one sows, one reaps! You are justifiably proud of your son, and I know he is smiling to the bones to please his Dad so much. Cyber hugs to both of you. Nice Maze, too– standing up on its wide feet! 🙂

  2. Congrats to your son…he has a good role model! Thanks for this quote, too, EXACTLY what I needed to hear today! The maze with it is so perfect…looks like a foundation (as in habits, are our foundation).

  3. Too Cool, Fo SHO!
    My Nephew Is A MAZE-FREAK hehehe

  4. You are lucky to have two sons that make you so proud. Not many people can draw inspiration from their children quite the way you do.
