What a great day to be a Baylor Bear! As we enter this holiday season, it is my hope that an honest reflection of the blessings in our lives will prompt us to embrace every moment of thankfulness. Even though our daily experiences may include disappointments, discouragements, and failings, may we always remember that God’s blessings are all around us. Those blessings can arrive in a beautiful morning sunrise, a cry from a newborn baby, a grandparent’s warm smile, a table full of food, or a blazing sunset at the end of a love-filled day.
We can also be thankful for great friends. This Saturday, members of Baylor’s 1980 SWC Championship team will gather to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the team’s invitation to the ’81 Cotton Bowl. I am fortunate to have been a member of that team and to have developed long-standing relationships with such a special group of men. They are like brothers to me. I am blessed that most of us have remained great friends through the years.
