“My son, I’m giving you the ball and naming you scrum-half for your team in the game of life. I’ve seen your coach, so I’m giving it to you straight. There is only one game to play. It lasts all your life, with no time out, no substitutions, You’ll have a great back-line and fullback. Their names are Faith, Hope, Charity, Love, Peace and Commitment.
Your forwards are a powerful pack, too. They are Honesty, Loyalty and Duty; Self-respect and Discipline; Dignity and Courage; and Enthusiasm.
God is the referee and sole official. He makes all the rules. Some call them the Ten Commandments. Play according to them. Try to help your teammates do the same.
So: here is the ball. It is called your soul. Pick it up and run with it, and let’s see what you can do. Remember, don’t go offside, and don’t kick away possession. Also remember that life is a game to be played for enjoyment. Nobody expects anything more than your personal best, have fun.
Finally, whether you win, lose or draw, you will always be my man, and I will always be your fan. Go for it!”
Thanks so much for sharing with me, dad!
“Man is mind
and evermore he takes the tool of thought
and, shaping what he wills,
brings forth a thousand joys,
a thousand ills.
He thinks in secret
and it comes to pass –
Environment is but his looking glass.”
