My how the times have changed. I am literally 15 minutes removed from an Eagles loss and I am not that bad. 2 years ago things would have been completely different. Not only would I have been a bear to deal with right now, but I would be in a crappy mood they entire next day.
Cora is a blessing in so many ways, but the most obvious right now is that she makes me be a better person. Is it wrong to be emotionally attached to a sports team and enjoy their victories and experience heartache with their losses, I am not saying that at all. I really enjoy being an Eagles fan. I like to follow the team and especially enjoy when they win…but Cora could care less.
When Cora is around I can’t yell rude things at the TV. When Cora is around I can’t throw things in disgust. When Cora is around I have to be in control of my emotions to be an example for her. Nothing in this world should have the ability to change who I am in Christ, especially not a silly football game.
For those of you who know me, you know how hard that is for me to say. But more importantly, tonight when I was giving Cora a horse ride and making her giggle as I gave her too many kisses as we rolled on the floor upstairs and as I kissed her forehead when I laid her down to sleep, I realized how silly it was that I used to be so attached to a game I had no control over.
