4 Food Groups of Football

Everyone once in a while you meet someone and it feels like you've been friends forever.  That's the way Christy Jordan made me feel when I met her.  

We were both on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic in December to deliver the 100 millionth shoebox to children in need through Operation Christmas Child.  The whole time, she talked about the delicious food she cooks for her family, and she made me so hungry!  

Christy describes herself as: "Author, Publisher of SouthernPlate.com, Contributing Editor Taste of The South, Mama, Alabamian, Hoarder of Pyrex and fresh watermelon."  She is an amazing and talented personality, and has a heart to serve God.  Love her!  

So naturally, she is the first person I called today when talking about Super Bowl food! She said, "I really don't think calories count, all is forgiven on Super Bowl Sunday, just go forward with a sense of peace and start cooking!"

Check out how she describes the Four Food Groups of Football:  Salty, Crunchy, Saucy, and Sweet!

Don’t give up hope!

I am totally inspired by two people today that refuse to give up, despite situations that you and I might fight very limiting.  

The first, is a pianist, does martial arts, and just set a world record.  She became first woman to become a pilot, without arms.  

She plays the piano, uses numchucks, and flies with her feet. 

 

Here is another example of a person defying the odds without arms, and without legs.  Well, he used to be without arms. 

Brendan is a soldier who lost all 4 limbs in Iraq.  He just got a double an arm transplant.  

They had this big news conference yesterday to celebrate this medical feat, 6 weeks after the transplant.

 

He insisted on rolling his own wheelchair into a the news conference using his transplanted arms, and then did something we do without even thinking that was huge for him, he lifted up his new arms and brushed his hair to one side.   

He had a special message at the conference for other wounded soldiers, and I admit felt like it for me you might feel like that too: 

"Don’t give up hope….life always gets better, and you're still alive.  Be stubborn. There's a lot of people who will say you can't do something. Just be stubborn and do it anyway!"

These brave people make me  think maybe my so called limitations aren’t so limiting after all.
