I’ve just returned from the Special Olympics World Summer Games in Athens (as a guest of longtime sponsor P&G) and as expected it was a learning experience. We can all learn from Special Olympics athletes and their families.
There is a little note tacked up on the front of my refrigerator. A couple of typed lines on a torn piece of paper. I will frequently do this when I find a quote that resonates with me, or one I hope will speak to my children. I figure that my teenagers are in the refrigerator enough times a day there might as well be something there that inspires thought other than what they want to stuff into their stomachs.
Currently on the refrigerator hangs this quote:
There is one word which may serve as a rule of practice for all one’s life – reciprocity. ~Confucius
Over the course of the next several weeks I will be introducing you to Carol McMullen, she is the mom of Special Olympics athlete Christopher McMullen who is a member of Team USA and competing in the Athens World Games as a swimmer. Carol is such a superstar that I can’t wait to share hers and Christopher’s stories with you.
