My dad and I had such a great time. I cherish last night so much and I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity to spend time with him.
If you, read my blogs you'd know that I write about a plethora of topics. Three of the most written about are Love, Family and Sports. I experienced all three in one night at the garden. We as people often lament about the ills of the world. We complain about what's going wrong as opposed to whats going right. Sometimes, I talk to people and not once do they share a positive moment, words of encouragement or even show a sign of gratitude. People including myself, can at times get into a moment of feeling like all is against you. As I was walking all the way to the top of MSG, I found myself wondering if my dad was going to complain about sitting up so high. Of course he got in his little joke saying "my nose is about to bleed", but when all was said and done he was very very happy. The seats were great (get those west balcony seats....some of the best in the garden!!) the ambiance was perfect and the company made for a great evening. I foolishly, allowed my mind to go places and imagine things that leaned on a more negative scale. For no reason.
I guess I'm just saying that life is short. Enjoy each moment. Make memories that you will always cherish and appreciate. Show gratitude for the people in your life and the things that make life special. Seek out those experiences that broaden your smile and light up your skin. I'm so glad I spent my Friday night with my dad...and the KNICKS won!!
