Teary start to the day (+deals)

Good morning friends!  Don’t you just hate when you think it’s a day ahead of what it really is?  I’m not sure why, but last night I went to bed thinking today was going to be Friday and I woke up thinking today was Friday.  I was quite deflated when I turned on the news during breakfast and found its only Thursday.  Maybe that’s why I was so emotional, but I cried twice while watching the news this morning.

The first tears were shed when a story came on about a local high school football team, Chicago Chargers who has gone undefeated this season and has the opportunity to go play in New Orleans this weekend.  However, the kids come from underprivileged homes and can’t afford to make the trip.  When news broke out, a local company decided to give up their holiday bonuses and party to help the kids get down to NOLA.  On top of that, Chicago Sport and Social has sent up a website to collect donations.   Tis’ the season to reflect on what we have and share what we can; especially for such deserving kids who worked hard to achieve such a goal as to be undefeated.  If you’re interested in learning more, or donating, check it out here.

The second story that had me tear up has to do with our troops leaving Iraq.  It’s a video of a father surprising his son at a school concert (note: for some reason I couldn’t get ABC7 Chicago to load; so I googled it to find it for ya).  This one had the tears flowing and sniffles out in full force.
